I‘m a native Brit, currently living in Southern California. I’m an author of mysteries and thrillers, with three published novels, all set in one of my favorite cities: San Francisco. The city is so diverse and it’s so easy for a killer to move around, which makes it the perfect location for a mystery.
When I’m not busy writing, I’ll be off somewhere reading, doing a crossword (I can’t resist a puzzle), or people watching and plotting my next murder.
