Our history is the path … More History we shouldn’t forget.

Life is relentlessly hard for ten-year-old Rosie as she struggles to … More NEW RELEASE! – The Chainmakers’ Daughter.
‘Some made chains, some wore them.’ It’s odd that I should have just published The Chainmakers’ Daughter – the white slaves of England at a time when the subject of race relations and slavery raises its head again.
