Author - YA and Historical
I'm an author of mainly YA and historical fiction. My background is in Ancient History, but I find lots of different time periods interesting, and I write non-fiction on Ancient, Medieval and Church History.
I am from Glasgow, the largest city in Scotland, although I've lived in a few different places and have an unplaceable accent. People occasionally mistake me for an American!
I graduated from the University of St Andrews, categorically the best university in the world, and I thought I was done with exams, but in fact I went on to do a couple of diplomas in unrelated subjects, and even ended up taking Latin A-Level for fun (it's a long story).
I'm an inveterate reader, an enthusiastic dancer, a devout Christian, an affectionate auntie, and a rather intense conversationalist.
