Hopefully you have come here because you are curious about the stories I am going to tell.
I was born in Preston, Lancashire in the UK and spent most of my childhood in foster homes, due to an abusive, physical home life.
As a child and teenager, I found solace in reading books, especially historical dramas like Sharpe, being a huge fan of Indiana Jones, I then began to write my own Indiana Jones-style stories, which I would spend hours illustrating.
Years later, while working in stressful conditions in Iraq and Afghanistan, I rediscovered my childhood love of sci-fi, action and adventure books and The Darkleich Series was born.
Inspired by my own struggles, I wanted the story of Darkleich to show younger readers and adults that they can overcome great hardships and make an important contribution to the world around them.
I now live in the USA, in Alexandria, Virginia, with my husband, partner, our dog Otis, and our three cats Mr. Humphreys, Elim, and Miss Slocombe. I love listening to classical music in my spare time and I am a huge fan of the classic rock, such as Neil Diamond and John Denver.
I believe I poses a great sense of humor and love regaling friends and family of funny stories from staying with my grandparents to family vacations to the Lake District.
WHY SHOULD YOU READ MY BOOKS
This book has an underlying message that is absolutely crucial and which I hope will touch you, help you and support you in all your endeavors: no matter what happens in life, and no matter how harsh life has been to you, you always have a way to make it, and accomplish what you want to achieve.
After all, look at me: I was told, from a very young age, that I was good for nothing, a loser. And now I’m happily married, I am a successful professional, and I am pursuing my dream of being a self-published artist, telling the exciting interplanetary tales of Darkleich and his crime unit, while also telling you that you should never let anything or anyone hold you down in life.
These boooks are a toast to an emancipation from adversity – mine, yours and everyone’s! Grasp life, live it, love it, embrace it, be the best YOU that you can be.
