I currently have one manuscript out on submission to agents, a fantasy novel being drafted, and another couple in the early dreaming stages.


Out on submission: Solace, a ~94k-word novel about grief and Witchcraft.


Blurb: As the wife of an Anglican Vicar on the Isle of Man, Meghan Colquhoun is a considerate and active member of the community. She and her husband, Peter, however, are struggling with the pain of infertility, which paints a subtle strain on their marriage. When Meghan becomes unexpectedly pregnant, the Colquhouns finally get a glimpse of the future they have hoped for. But life doesn’t always turn out the way you think … 


Writing: An adult fantasy novel about thieves, drugs, dragons, and found family.


Old Writing (pre-2006)

Back in the mid/late-1990s and early 2000s, I was actively submitting works (under my maiden name) to various magazines, online and off, with some success. Life Happened, then, as it is wont to do, and I stopped submitting for a long, long time. Several house moves later and I’m not sure where my Publications list ended up, but here’s what I can remember.
