About

 


I’ve written for as long as I can remember, and was reading adult books in primary school. 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 and the Icelandic Sagas (with a smattering of Old Norse and Old English – tip: swearing in Old Norse is a really effective conversation stopper!).

I now live in Toronto, Canada with my husband Max and two rescue cats (Bear and Wolf). 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.

In my alternate identity as Lady Matilda, I post satirical articles on managing your medieval manor during the Black Death (Read them Here)

I’m currently working on my MG ghost series, Gaby’s Ghosts.

    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 🙂 )

    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. 🙂
