During the writing of ‘Silver Linings’, I had originally thought it would be a stand-alone book but my characters thought otherwise. They were not prepared to let things end there and soon after completing that first book, Sam, Jenny, Charlie and my elven friends began nagging at me to get fingers back to keyboard and tell the next part of the tale. And, they weren’t satisfied with stopping at the second volume ‘Queen of Diamonds’. Still they wanted more…and they got it when ‘Fool’s Gold’ was created and completed what I had come to believe would stay as a trilogy.
Then came the years that, no matter how much they nagged, I just did not have the time to write a fourth book although I could not get my characters and the world I had created out of my head. So now, very overdue, I am finally working on my fourth book – working title ‘Avaroc’s Return’.
I love writing and I thoroughly enjoy being involved in the village and surrounding area of the Mendip Hills in Somerset. The characters in my stories are very close to my heart. They are a blend of people I have known and imagination. Having lived in Somerset and Dorset, the West Country has always been a very special, magical place making it easy to believe in elves and legendary characters.
I hope you will find affection for the wonderful people who populate my stories and, if you have never visited the area, I hope you will find a time to go and explore this wonderful part of Britain and enjoy the scenery, the history and the people of the area.
