"The past beats inside me like a second heart."
John Banville, The Sea
If you've ever held a treasured object in your hand or visited a place steeped in history, you'll understand the lure of the past.
Voices from time gone by seem to whisper to us and secrets lie waiting to be revealed.

As a writer of dual timeline novels, I love the interplay between past and present: how an object or building discovered in the here-and-now can take us back to another time and place. 
From Cambridge to Bologna, Antwerp to Amsterdam, Paris to Bonn, I write about star-crossed lovers whose journeys span the war-torn decades of the last century and echo in the present day.

I'm currently working on my next book and I can't wait to tell you about it soon.
Meanwhile, I hope you enjoy discovering how the past has inspired me as you explore these pages...
