Welcome to my website and thank you for taking the time to explore it
My work focuses on ordinary human beings faced with extraordinary circumstances. The Second World War has proved a rich seam and I have written about many aspects of it including evacuees, women on the Home Front, fashion in wartime and, most recently, the stories of country houses requisitioned and used for multifarious purposes.

My 2013 book Jambusters was the inspiration for ITV's successful drama series Home Fires which ran for two seasons in 2015 and 2016 and was watched by more than 6 million viewers per episode in the UK alone. It aired in 135 territories worldwide.
