Please do leave me a review:




My debut novel Seahaven, a historic adventure story set in a fictionalised version of the Whiby area, was published by Blossom Spring Publishing in September 2021. It  can be ordered from Amazon in paperback and e-book.

Seahaven is a lawless fishing village on the wild East Coast of Yorkshire. When a sailing ship is wrecked, three young people from very different backgrounds are caught up in a race against time. Solomon must escape his bondage as an American slave and his two friends, Robin and Sophie, are desperate to help him.

Here is my latest five star review, and you can see them all and more about the book at  at the link above!

A classic adventure tale. A proper page turner and really well written. I enjoyed the interesting historical detail giving an insight into the harsh reality of life in the past whilst still being an enjoyable read as the characters kept the story moving. Highly recommended.

 I very much hope that readers who follow the writing on my website here will enjoy both Seahaven (young adult and upwards) and my new book Button Box  (readers aged 10 to 18 and above) just published, details below. Please see for more information and see my biography on their Our Authors list under the About tab.
