Welcome

As I write in a number of genres and under other names, I thought it was time I had a website. So here it is.

I’ve had something approaching seventy books published by the likes of Boldwood, Penguin, Orion, Virgin, Canelo and Head of Zeus, plus foreign translations. A number have appeared in the top thirty best selling paperbacks also as ebooks.

My historical WW2 books (as LIZZIE LANE) are set mostly in Bristol. My cosy crime Honey Driver series (Jean G Goodhind) is set in Bath. There are others set in the Far East and West Indies as Erica Brown. Far East again as Jean Moran.

I also won a BBC New Writers’ Award and for a time had a weekend column with the Western Daily Press.

I think pink hair suits marks me out as a creative novelist so am sticking to it.
