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 their unique feline companion. In addition to the full-length books, there are also several shorter stories – Max's Adventures, where the talking Tonkinese cat undertakes special solo missions.
The series is not yet complete and 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.
