I dipped my pinkie toe into the world of fiction writing with a short story in the Blasted Heath crime fiction collection, Worth the Wait. I waded further into the writerly waters when my short story “The Best Dish” was named winner of the 2013 Bloody Scotland Short Story Competition. Gaining confidence, I cannonballed into the deep end and published a novel. Lo and behold, the Amazon best-selling Reverend Lindsay Harding mystery series splashed into being. More recently, my short story “The Blackness Before Me” made waves as the lead-off piece in the 2017 Malice Domestic Anthology: Murder Most Historical, edited by Charlaine Harris and my sci-fi story “Equality Day” won the Artemis Journal/Lightbringer Award at the LitFest Pasadena.
Before I started writing fiction, I spent years stuffing my brain full of knowledge and traipsing around the world working in project management roles with university research centers.
I live with my husband and various children in Virginia, USA. The most recent book in the Reverend Lindsay Harding series is The Burnt Island Burial Ground, available on Amazon. I took 2017 off, but I’m back working on a middle-grade series set in Scotland.
