As featured on SATURDAY LIVE with the Rev. Richard Coles,

BBC  Radio London & Radio Scotland. She was also a guest at the Borders Book Festival discussing her book -


NOW BEING REPRINTED!  2 months after publication.  

“…..a page turner with attitude”, it’s THE read of the summer.   Published by Sandstone Press, available from Amazon or any good book shop 


Mistress and Commander is exuberant, heart-warming and inspiring, a captivating read.”    Lee Durrell’s comment 

“Imagine A Year in Provence with the cast of Para Handy; add a touch of James Herriot, and you’ll get the drift of Mistress and Commander. Imagine Freya Stark, or some other dauntless female, taking on the alpha male communities of maritime Scotland and you’ll have the measure of Amelia Dalton.”    Peter Hughes, travel writer, FT & Telegraph

THANK YOU, Lee and Peter !
