Author A to Z

June began her writing career by having articles published in a women’s magazine and broadcasting short stories on Radio Merseyside. A desire to know what happened next to her characters made her realise that she really wanted to be a novelist. She wrote five medieval romances for Harlequin Mills & Boon before giving in to the urge to write a saga set in her home town of Liverpool. She has had numerous novels published and enjoys writing for both genres.

June lives on Merseyside with her husband and has three grown up sons and is the organiser of the Northwest Chapter of the RNA. In her spare time she enjoys swimming, walking and researching her family tree.
