dark, quirky & paranormal fiction

Brand new ghost story available!

Can't Fool Me is free to read on the Fox Spirit Books blog.


Emily fought for control. "Let me get this straight. You're busy making a programme about haunted houses and you don't believe in ghosts?"

Thanks for dropping in. Here you'll find details of all my books and many of my short stories (an odd mix of ghosts, tentacles and good old fashioned baddies, sometimes all at once) plus the latest news, a brief introduction to myself and links to my blog.

Dip in below to start exploring.

Got Ghosts?

"Some psychic you are, darling - you didn't see that coming!"

"...spooky chills with plenty of light-hearted laughter." Matt Hilton, author of 'Preternatural' and 'The Shadows Call'

"...a humorous ghost story with an old English charm." Tom Adams, author of 'The Psychonaut' and 'Coffin Dodger'

Paranormal romance Got Ghosts? is a quirky romp stuffed full of ghosts, TV producers, ghosts, missing paintings, ghosts, happy - and unhappy - mediums, and yet more ghosts. The book is published by Fox Spirit in both print and digital versions with delightful cover art by Vincent Holland-Keen.

Head to the main Got Ghosts? page for more info including an excerpt - and details of where you can buy the book.

About me

I live in a slate cottage within stone-throwing distance of England's largest lake. I rarely have my nose far from the pages of a good book - or a cup of tea!
