I previously spent 20 years in law enforcement, working in the UK and Europe but that all ended suddenly in 2006. Very soon my marriage also failed and I had to relocate pending divorce.

So I started writing in order to keep myself occupied after suffering a triple whammy – job, marriage and children – simply for being trans. Up until that point the only recent writing had been (family) court statements.

None of the my efforts appeared anywhere but by 2010 I was confident enough to enter a Hallowe’en story competition. That story introduced a character of Tom/Tammy Smart. A follow-up story featured the same character but was a stand-alone story. I was persuaded/conned into expanding Tammy’s story and that became Tamara’s Debut, a 350 page novel.

I also started republishing the Tammy series on Kindle with Tamara’s Debut and Tamara’s First Christmas appearing in 2020, further books have since appeared.  The original Tammyverse serialized stories are still out there, complete with typos.

Also back in 2010 I started a different story called Unaccounted Gains and three books appeared online as serials, all three are now full length novels alongside a fourth book in 2022.
