I'm a Sardinian-Brit who loves stories (listening, reading, passing them on), food (making, sharing, eating) and wandering around places I don't yet know...

I'm delighted my second novel The Secret Legacy was released on my birthday this month (can you spell adrenaline overload?) and will soon be released in the USA.

Thanks for taking a peek at my site. I'm a technophobe by nature (happiest growing stuff on our allotment) but I would love it if you took a second to subscribe below so I can keep you updated with information on giveaways and other news...

A beautifully-told story about one woman’s determination to exorcise the sorrows of her family’s past. It brought tears to my eyes more than once.
