Tamsin's War is a remarkable and moving account of life as a nurse serving in the armed forces.
We follow her from Selly Oak in Birmingham to Camp Bastion field hospital in Afghanistan, experiencing with her intimately, the roller coaster of life and death, success and failure that confront her as a member of the Medical Evacuation team during the conflict.
This wonderful book places the reader at Tamsin's side throughout the whole story, vividly experiencing every sight, sound and emotion with her.

This novel will take you through 2 years on a modern day Sioux reservation in Dakota. It follows a people who want to live as close to their ancestors as possible. The novel is very visual and takes you back to the old traditions and spirituality. All this is brought to life by the main character who, after securing a 6 month contract to work on the reservation and write about the lives of the tribe and the people that visit them, finds herself drawn into the tribe. The decisions she makes have profound affects on both the tribe and her own family back in England.
A beautiful story that I got into very quickly. The characters are so vibrant and alive and most importantly, believeable. You can tell the author has done her research and the mingling of old and new is brilliant.
A very visual read. Very different from Tamsin's War but no less compelling.
Brilliant story. The mother!!! I could have strangled her!! Beautifully visual. Hope there is a sequel.
I was born and raised in Plymouth before moving to Berkshire where I pursued a career as an analyst.
Reading was always a major part of my life, but writing did not enter equation until 2007 when I wanted to find a form of escapism, writing about things I had a passion and interest for. As a result, my genres are never same!
That escapism became a passion and the passion led me to a writing course with Oxford University in 2010.
My first novel, Tamsin’s War was published in 2012, a bi product of the course.
My second novel, Call of The Buffalo, took 5 years to research and another 2 years to write.
