I moved to the south coast of England just before the Covid pandemic and after finishing my trilogy, The Green Family Saga, I started to plan the Seacastle Mysteries. I have always been a massive fan of crime and mystery and I guess it was inevitable I would turn my hand to a mystery series eventually. Deadly Return will be released on the 1st of July 2023.
Before I started to write novels, I spent 30 years working as an exploration geologist managing remote sites and doing due diligence of projects in more than thirty countries. During this time, I collected the tall tales and real-life experiences which inspired the Sam Harris Adventure Series chronicling the adventures of a female geologist as a pioneer in a hitherto exclusively male world.
I worked in many countries in South America and Africa in remote, strange, and often dangerous places, and loved every minute of it, despite encountering my fair share of misogyny and other perils. The Sam Harris Adventure Series is for lovers of intelligent adventure thrillers happening just before the time of mobile phones and internet. It has a unique viewpoint provided by Sam, a female interloper in a male world, as she struggles with alien cultures and failed relationships.
My childhood in Ireland inspired me to write the Green Family Saga which follows the fortunes of an English family who move to Ireland just before the start of the troubles.
I have also written a mystery on Mars, inspired by my fascination with all things celestial. It is a science-based murder mystery, think The Martian with fewer potatoes and more bodies.
