About Bea

My crime/suspense novels, In Too Deep and This Little Piggy are now out in paperback, e-book, large print and audio published by Legend Press.

These books were inspired by my years working as a journalist, for newspapers, radio and TV. I spent 17 years at the BBC and left to finish a Creative Writing PhD at Newcastle University, supervised by the award-winning writer Jackie Kay and children's literature expert Professor Kim Reynolds.
The children's novel written as part of that PhD, The Serpent House, is published by Curious Fox. My second children's book, My Cousin Faustina, is published by ReadZone Books.
I live in beautiful Berwick-upon-Tweed with my partner and children. I'm also passionate about teaching all kinds of writing skills to others. Check out my teaching page and get in touch!
