I am Dawn Bolton. I write contemporary suspense/romance, crime novels and supernatural stories under the name of Toni Bolton and historical romance under the name of Alexie Bolton.
I am a former history student and law lecturer. I use examples of the history and legal cases in my work. I research to enhance the books I write. I still tutor students in English, Mathematics and creative writing.
I enjoy interior and garden design and painting and drawing. I am currently illustrating some books I am writing for children.
My husband and I have been renovating a cottage which was once an old pub. I run the cottage now as a guesthouse near to the Grand Union Canal.
I enjoy going to the gym and swimming. I ski and cycle enjoy travelling. I find my holidays provide interesting themes to write about in my novels.
I live with two lovable mischievous Birman vandals.
