Hello and welcome to my website!
I have always loved series of novels in which I can immerse myself, which let me get to know an engaging, interesting and/or terrifying cast of characters slowly, in the same way you get to know people in real life. Ideally, the drama should be played out in a gorgeous setting, and the cast should include at least one dangerously charismatic, witty, outrageous protagonist with whom I can fall in love! A bit of murder and mayhem in the mix never hurts either.
With the Pitfourie series, my intention has been to create such a world, centred on the charming but delinquent Hector Forbes and his precociously gifted younger brother Damian, enigmatic protagonists whose characters and secrets are revealed to the reader through the series.
On this website you will find information about currently available books and stories in the series and future releases, and also standalone books. There is a question and answer page, and a contact form via which you can get in touch if you like and/or be added to my mailing list to be the first to hear about new releases and offers. I have also included some links to friends' books and blogs which I love.
Thank you for visiting!
Having discovered early in my 'career' that I didn't have what it takes to be a scientist, I shuffled sideways into scientific and medical editing, which has the big advantage that I can do it while watching Bargain Hunt.
I now live in the north-east of Scotland, by coincidence just half a mile or so from the tiny hamlet in which my great-great-grandmother Jane Renshaw, the wife of a shoemaker, brought up her eight children and where she is buried under a lichen-covered headstone in the graveyard. I hope she would not mind my borrowing her name.
