I thought it would be rather nice to share with you some of the beautiful and fascinating places in ‘Middle Hertfordshire’ that have inspired the stories in my book, and to introduce you to some of the people and characters who have helped me along my way. So here is a little video I have made (by myself – oh for a ‘lights, camera, action team’!) about the Devil’s Dyke. Enjoy!

The ruin of a seventeenth century cottage that I discovered for myself during one of my lockdown works inspired a story. Find out more here.

'Nomansland Common - An Adventure. It didn't matter how many times Shirley had come here, she always felt her heart swell with the romance of the barren landscape....'

To find out how this deeply historical common in the heart of Hertfordshire inspired my story of cousins Shirley, Margaret, Jonathan and Eleanor at the end of the second world war in my book 'What the Wind Saw,' then watch this video.

How is it there are two churches at Ayot St Lawrence? Why is there a Greek temple in an English village. Watch this video to find out and to learn how the temple and the ruin gave me inspiration for my book.

Today I take you to the village of Ayot St Lawrence in my video and show you the old church which features in my story 'The Palladian Church.' Enjoy!

I shot this video when out on a walk. I imagined most of my stories when out walking in our beautiful Hertfordshire countryside.
