Coventina's Well

The Sacred Feminine, the marriage of Jesus of Nazareth and Mary Magdalene, a secret bloodline – all very fascinating, but what has it really got to do with modern women?

Three women. Three different histories, personalities, generations.

Is there something, some ancient wisdom, that connects them all and can answer them all?

Welcome To My Website!

I’ve always loved listening to, reading and writing stories; there is something magical in picking up a pencil and writing into creation, on a blank piece of paper, images full of meaning that matter to the author and hopefully to the reader.

I have had the luxury of doing this with my novels: Coventina’s Well, A Harp of Truest Tone, Silvery Elms, The Singing Stone and Silvery Elms, The Kaleidoscope. Writing children’s stories and illustrating them is a different sort of adventure to when writing historical novels and for me each comes to me in its own time. With practise and experience, I have learned to know when the time for making notes of interesting but seemingly unrelated things comes to its natural conclusion and the time for writing in earnest begins.

I hope you enjoy reading my books as much as I loved writing them.
