Gillian lives in Darlington in the North East of England with her husband and rescue dog, Liffey. With four adult children and nine grandchildren, there is always plenty to do, but her passion for writing occupies much of her time. After a career in child care as the owner/manager of a day nursery, Gillian changed course and trained as a therapeutic counsellor. Following this, five years working in the voluntary sector for Victim Support brought a whole new range of experiences as she supported victims of crimes, from burglary to homicide. Combining these experiences with a lifelong love of writing, Gillian often writes about gritty issues, but with a sensitive touch.
Gillian has signed an eight book contract with Bloodhound Books. The first three are currently available on most ebook platforms and as paperback editions while the others will be released in 2022 and 2023. There are also three women’s fiction novels currently available – see Books page.
