Writer of steampunk, Victorian mysteries and fantasy.
Illustrator.  Artist. Gardener. Chocoholic and tea lover.

Welcome to my journey as a writer, always learning. Here be musings on writing, art, photography … and my garden – even some philosophy, on occasion.
My main influences are speculative fiction with my current genres centering on Steampunk and gaslamp, Fantasy, Historical.
I also love costuming!
