A sublime historical novel. It flows, it's real ... Whitford's writing is impeccable. Historical fact melds seamlessly with historical fiction.


I so much enjoyed reading Treason.

Hello, and welcome to my website.

I've published two very successful historical novels, Treason and Shakespeare's Will, and a biography, Churchill's Rebels: Jessica Mitford and Esmond Romilly.

I am also an editor and manuscript assessor, director of Between Us Manuscript Assessment Service.

I live in South Australia, and I have a BA in English, history and Classics from the University of Adelaide, and a Master's Degree in Creative Writing from Flinders University. It was my university work that made me, after years of reading, decide to write about Richard III, Shakespeare, and the Romillys. 

My latest novel, this one contemporary, is called "Missing Christina" and will be published in print and as an e-book by Endeavour Press UK in July 2017.

Please enjoy exploring my website for information about my books and other things of interest. Thank you for visiting, and contact me if you want to. I am always available for interviews, talks, and book signings.
