A graduate of Exeter University in the UK in the early 1980s, I spent twenty years as a teacher of French, Latin and Classical studies, before a change of career led me to writing children's fiction for Middle Grade readers. Currently residing in Abu Dhabi in the UAE, I live with my husband and our beautiful Tonkinese cat.
Shadows from the Past is a series of time-travel adventures, featuring three children and a rather unique feline companion. In addition to the full-length books, there are also some short stories – Max's Adventures - all of which are spin-offs from the series, featuring Max the cat on special solo missions. Shadows from the Past is far from complete. Still only halfway through the series, my young time-travellers have many more adventures to come. As I take my readers on a magical mystery tour through the past, I’m hoping that my love of history, myth and legend will rub off on them too.
