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 family sagas set in the Lake District, Manchester, Cornwall and other places around the world. Wherever I’ve lived or visited.

I also write historical romance and biographical historicals under the name Marion Carr.

As you can see history is a passion of mine. I hope you enjoy my new title: Home is Where the Heart Is. The first of a trilogy set Post War. It was fascinating to research the effects of war upon relationships. You can read more about this on my blog.

If you have any comments or questions, or simply want to chat, don’t hesitate to get in touch. I love talking to readers on Facebook and Twitter.
