Favourite quote: 'You gotta be fucking kidding' - The Thing
British writer who escaped to Amsterdam, works in the corporate world by day, writes by night. Close to completing my first gothic romance novel with an erotic twist. Normally keep to myself so Create50 has helped push me into the light… or is that darkness?

You may have heard that we are making an Audiobook of Twisted50 volume 1, aided and abetted by ace producer
Helen Lloyd. We asked all the authors in the book to make a small contribution to help pay for this (anyone can make a contribution
HERE) and we will be selling both physical and downloadable copies too.
You can pre-order yours in the store HERE (and please do so as we have to find a way to break even on the recordings). Helen wrote an article about the process HERE…
I love wearing high heels. The power. The adrenaline pumping sexuality. The socially acceptable dirty pretty look every woman, and some men too, can use or better still, abuse.
For a transgender twist on the vampire story, high heels seemed an appropriate and powerful totem for the heroine in my story, Tatiana. Once a man, now a woman. So long as she stays on the right side of her Faustian deal.
What I love most about writing, is the way it can conjure evocative images in the mind of both the writer and the reader. Our thoughts are truly uncensored and that arouses something in me when I write. Our thoughts are true and honest. And for me, a wonderfully dangerous playground.
I live in Amsterdam and last winter, while wandering the red light district, I mused, ‘what if vampires lived behind those red doors?’ Momentarily later I passed a stunningly beautiful trans sex worker, and ‘Killer Heels’ was born.
The first draft was written in a delirious fever that night, and then entered into Twisted 50 before I knew any better. I don’t seek the spotlight so this was a big step for me.
Little did I know how far my story would go.
I have been overwhelmed by the lovely words people have shared about my story and grateful for all the feedback that has made it stronger. I now look forward to Twisted 2 and seeing what my uncensored mind reveals when I pull back the red satin to see.
Now. Where are my favourite heels?
