There are five series to read. The first two featured amateur sleuth Sophie Rivers and Detective Sergeant Kate Power respectively. All of these novels, apart from Hidden Power, are set in present day Birmingham or nearby (that's Birmingham UK, not Birmingham Alabama). I hope you'll enjoy them.

Although they're both fictional characters, both Sophie and Kate share parts of their lives with me. Like Sophie, I was born in the Black Country, just outside Birmingham, later moving to the Birmingham suburb of Harborne, which is where Sophie still lives.

I started writing while I was at the then Oldbury Grammar School, actually winning the Critical Quarterly Short Story prize with the second story I wrote. After that - nothing. I read English at university and got thoroughly blocked until I was in my thirties. Then an attack of chickenpox caught from my son laid me low. One way of dealing with the itch was to hold a pencil in one hand, a block of paper in the other - and to start writing my first novel. This eventually appeared in a much revised version as Coming Alive, published by Severn House.
