Friendship, magic and tea. Three friends battle to stay safe.
Sam was gone, and no one knew where or why. Her car was found near the old oak tree, empty and abandoned. There was no sign of foul play, but also no sign of Sam, except for footprints that led to the oak tree...and stopped.

Two years later, her best friend Kate still cares for Sam’s children, waiting for Sam to return for them. Then one day she does. “I don’t have long,” Sam says. “Can you help me?” Kate must help her return home from a place that is closer than you might think, but still a world away.

Sam's escape is just the beginning of her journey. Sam must go back to confront and defeat her abductor, leaving Kate to care for her children. Sam returns to the old oak tree, and the Portal to the world where she was held prisoner. In a whirlwind world of magic and monsters, where people and things are not who or what they appear to be, there are hard choices ahead, and Sam must learn if she's strong enough to make them.

I am a single mother raising two young children and I write while they're at school or after they're in bed.

I started writing during a period of bleakness after a long term relationship came to an end and a very good friend badgered and cajoled me into writing and eventually challenged me to take part in the NaNoWriMo online challenge in November 2005. The Portal Between is the result of that challenge and was mostly written during that month. I wrote 50,000 words in 30 days and loved every agonising moment.

I was born in March 1969, the same month John Wyndham died. Apparently I watched the moon landings. I was four months old so I don't remember, but I've been told I watched them.

There followed a relatively uneventful childhood and traditionally turbulent teenage years.

I left school at 18 to start teacher training but never finished it. I then drifted into a series of jobs - I was not really happy in any of them. I spent most of my time in various retail chains and eventually ended up working for the Post Office. In 2000 I had my first child. His sister followed in 2003. But I never went back to work after I had her. I set up my own business instead - Ethics Trading. I downsized my life and started to live more simply. But I discovered the vast wealth of the internet!
