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.

  1. Hi Kelly, just wondered if there are plans to release your book for kindle? Or will it remain as a book?
    (Will your book remain a book? Sounds stupid, but you know what I mean 🙂 )

      1. Okay, if I don’t spot it on the Nordland site will you let me know please. I’m fighting a losing battle with my wife to reduce books and save space! So I tend to get most fiction on my kindle. But your book does look cool, though.Congratulations.

  2. Hi Kelly, just finished reading your book and loved it. Very impressed. Left a review on Goodreads and Amazon UK. Look forward to the next one. 🙂

  3. kelly congrats on great success. Please get Max to drop a line to his godfather. … we’ve all lost too many contacts which is daft in this dsy and age

  4. Hi! I enjoy connecting with ither authors and fellow bloggers. My blog and podcast features indie writers, authors, & poets. Love the concept of your books combining history and horror. Look forward to reading your newsletter.

    1. Hello there! I’m so impressed by people with blogs, I learned early on I just didn’t have the discipline to do one. AND a podcast? man, you must have no time to yourself! Thank you for connecting with me, I also love meeting other authors and history fans!
