I’ve written for as long as I can remember. Love of stories just doesn’t cover it!
Born in Canada of Scottish extraction, I graduated in History and English from McMaster University in Ontario, Canada. After graduation I moved to the UK where I worked in the financial sector. While in London I continued my studies in history, focussing on Medieval England.
I now live in Oshawa, Canada with my husband Max and two rescue cats. I worked in the financial sector as a trade technology project manager for over 20 years but retired recently to write full time. I’m a voracious reader (I brought over 3,000 books with me when I moved back to Canada from England) and enjoy history, music (I play medieval recorder), and watching really really bad horror and old sci-fi movies. Seriously. My husband mocks me for it.
In my alternate identity as Lady Matilda, I post satirical articles on managing your medieval manor during the Black Death (Read them Here)
I’ve just released my new historical fiction novel, The Beggar Queen, and am up to my neck in research for my next novel, set in Seventeenth Century Italy.
