The Lavender Witch is a chilling ghost story based on the strange but true events surrounding the death of Hannah Beamish, accused of being a witch by a wealthy farmer in a small remote village where she lived in the early 1800’s.
One hundred and seventy years later these strange events, only now remembered by a few, come to light when Kitty and Gordon move back to the Devon village where they were born, they buy an old orchard from a farmer and build a small house. All is fine until they move in and Kitty spends her first day alone in their new home.
Over the course of their first week in the house chilling apparitions appear and events spiral out of their control bringing the past and present together until the truth emerges as to what really happened on Castle Hill. Was Kitty and Gordon’s return to the village a coincidence? And what secrets are the elderly sisters Sybil and Queenie keeping? To save their home and their sanity they must finally put the ghosts to rest.

Growing up in rural Dorset, I became fascinated with the folklore of the countryside. I worked in advertising, running a design business with my husband on the south coast before moving to Cambridge for a number of years. Interest in my artwork and writing increased on-line and the first illustrated book ‘Faeries and Folklore of the British Isles’ was published in 2006. A second Illustrated book ‘Faerie Flora’, was released in 2013, a seasonal guide to the country’s most common flowers and plants including faerie stories, spells and charms. The Lavender Witch, the first in the Psychic Sisters series of novels was released 2014, followed by The Cunning Man, The Haunting of Stoke Water and the fourth in the series, The Doll.
A change of style followed with a number of illustrated short stories for Children under the ‘Mice of Horse-hill Farm’ series and ‘The Faeries Tea Party’.
I also contribute folklore articles to a number of popular magazine titles.
