Biography

Born in England, I have been living in Italy for the last 27 years. While it was easy to get used to the food, the climate and culture were quite a different matter! And I do miss Marmite and Cheddar cheese!

I work as a professional freelance translator - I have translated an Italian writer's book and screenplay into English. The screenplay is currently winning awards in America! 

Walls of Silence is my first novel, and I've published two short stories. I've also written two children's books that I hope to publish later this year. All my books and stories are translated into Italian.

I also work hard to make people aware of domestic violence and how women in these situations can find help, partly due to personal experience and partly due to the chauvanistic attitude men still have towards women in Italy. In fact, a part of the proceeds from Walls of Silence (and its Italian equivalent) will be donated to women's centre in the UK and Italy.
