Hi and welcome to my website. I’m a published author of science themed women’s fiction and a book designer. This is the right place if you are trying to find out more about me, what I write and why. You can participate in my blogs, browse my novels, read extracts and I will be adding further media content to engage with over time. For me though, creating a book is much more than just doing the research and writing, but a real focal point for all the other work I do too, like cover and interior design, editing, typography and formatting which will also be featured here. Although I create all types of eBooks and appreciate their positive attributes, my heart still lies particularly with paper. I love print, the smell, feel and long history, going way back into antiquity when they were individually handwritten before Gutenberg invented his printing press in the fifteenth century and changed the world forever. There is nothing better than browsing around an old bookshop and savouring the holding of a nineteenth century, red leather bound book printed in old Caslon type. In fact the site will be a continuing experiment in ideas and design and will occasionally change, perhaps radically, not only with new content, but with features, themes, colours and layouts as I play around with different appearances and interesting approaches.
I am looking forward to knowing what you think and would love to hear from you. Also I tweet regularly on interesting book and publishing issues through my creativepubtalk feed so feel free to follow me and also join my LinkedIn network of writers and publishers. Enjoy and have fun!
