''the theme of the primitive heroine comes sharply into focus in GRAINNE (1987), which draws upon the Celtic legend of the Goddess and explores her power in the modern age through the form of a mysterious young girl. These novels form the author's main corpus of fantastic fiction. They have affinities with the work of Robert Holdstock and Richard Cowper in the exploration of mythic figures, and find a natural conclusion in The Road to Paradise (1988), a contemporary timeslip novel where the weight of Britain's past begins to haunt the heroine'' (Encyclopedia of Fantasy).
