Welcome to my website and thank you for calling in. I hope you’ll find something of interest about my books, and a little about me.
I write gritty historical sagas set in the Lake District, Manchester, Cornwall and other places around the world. Wherever I’ve lived or visit for a holiday.
I also write historical romance and biographical historicals under the name of Marion Carr.
As you can see, history is a passion of mine. If you have any comments or questions, or simply wish to chat, don’t hesitate to get in touch. I love talking to readers on Facebook and Twitter.
