I am the author of two published novels, I Have Waited, and You Have Come and After Phoenix. I’ve recently completed my third novel, which has taken me to California, Brazil and Brighton and has a variety of working titles. I am now writing its sequel.
I’ve also published short fiction in various anthologies and am an occasional contributor to Writing Magazine.
I speak passable French, basic German and can count from one to ten in Swiss-German, Italian and Spanish.
