I was born
and brought up in London, where I live with my husband and three children.
After studying French and Philosophy at Leeds University, I worked in local
radio in Leeds as a producer and presenter before returning to London to make
short documentaries for a Channel 4 production company. In 1985 I set up my
own company, Works on Screen; our productions included Through the Devil's
Gateway, a series about women and religion presented by Helen Mirren, which
was broadcast by Channel 4 in 1989. A book of the series was published by SPCK.
Sister Agnes first appeared with the publication of Sacred Hearts
in 1994. This was followed by The Hour of Our Death (1995), The
Quick and the Dead (1996), A Dark and Sinful Death (1997),
The Dying Light (1999), The Night Watch (2000), Darkening
Sky (2004), Shadow of Death (2007) and most
recently A Violent Act (2008). The Sister Agnes Mystery
series can be found on Amazon Kindle on Amazon.co.uk
I have written short stories for Radio 4, for YOU magazine, for Critical
Quarterly and for various women's magazines, as well as abridging novels
for Radio 4 programmes such as Book at Bedtime, The Late
Book and Woman's Hour, including the award-winning production
of Captain Corelli's Mandolin. My radio plays include Sister
Agnes Investigates (2008), Benedict's Rule (2004),
Go For The Grail (1995) and Baby on Board (1996).
