Writer & Scholar specialising in the history, theory, criticism and analysis of Literature, Film and Art - with a passion for the Victorian, Edwardian and Interwar periods.

As a writer, I write academic study guides for literature, film and art students, as well as essays for academic journals.

I am also a published author and ghostwriter, publishing short stories and novellas in a range of genres including literary, detective and mystery, gothic and ghost, and drama and romance. I write for adults, young adults and children.

As a scholar, I am undertaking research for a Doctor of Philosophy in English Literature. Further to my thesis, my independent research and writing interests include women writers, ghost stories, detective fiction and the symbiotic relationship between literature, film and art. I am particularly interested in the period from the early nineteenth to the early twentieth century.

When I'm not writing, I love to read, relax with my beautiful cats Gypsy Willow and Poppy Rose, listen to jazz and collect books, art and all things vintage.
