Introduce yourself!
It's been a while since I updated here... Now have two new Steampunk novels out, Full Throttle and Rise of the Petrol Queen. Both feature my working class heroine, Poppy Orpington, as she fights to make a place for herself in the male-dominated elitist world of motor racing.

How did you hear about us?

A short while ago Double Dragon Ebooks accepted my novella Steampunk Imperialism for publication, albeit with a name change to Rise of the Steampunk Empire. The reason I’m blogging about this, apart from the obvious, is because of what caused the story to be written in the first place. That cause was Charles Stross.


As most of you probably already know, Mister Stross is not a fan of steampunk. In…

Womenfolk in trousers? Scandalous! I shall examine the images in my darkened study, to see how depraved they truly are. Do Not Disturb...
