I am delighted to tell you that from the sales of my Christmas 2020 short story The Christmas Cardinal and the two beaded and embroidered limited edition panels I have been able to donate £250 to the charity SENSE. This charity does amazing work supporting the deaf/blind and others with severe disabilities. Like many charities they have been hit hard by the COVID pandemic. I am thrilled that in accepting the donation they have recognised and acknowledged ELVIS’ charitable legacy.
To those of you who bought these items, and on behalf of SENSE and myself, THANK YOU!

I am VERY excited to launch two new designs for Spring 2021.
Two beautiful images from 1970
The first is something a little different. My absolute favourite casual off stage shirt that Elvis wore. Featured in the rehearsal scenes in Elvis That’s The Way It Is.
I wanted to do justice to the intricate floral design and so I decided to use a black and white image of Elvis(looking stunning) in the shirt. The motif is picked out in tiny white and yellow beads to make the pattern really POP.
I am thrilled with the result. So thrilled I have kept the first edition for myself.
If you would like to commission a ETTWII shirt piece they are £80 framed and mounted Plus shipping.
If you live outside the U.K. and would like to cut down on shipping costs I can provide a price for the item just mounted and you buy your own deep box display frame. Just use the Contact page to get in touch
This simple but stunning jumpsuit also featured in Elvis That’s The Way It Is. The unusual ladder design in red snakeskin around each side of the chest and up onto the collar was something strikingly different.
I was able to source some faux red snakeskin which is an amazing match to the original.
I am very pleased with how authentic the finished commission was and very happy that the client is thrilled with it.
If you would like to commission a Ladder panel they are £70 plus shipping. Each design comes framed and mounted alongside a picture of Elvis in the suit and also a laminated detailed description of the suit and the history of when and where Elvis wore it.

I am a life long Elvis fan and as such I celebrate my passion for the man and his music. My Elvis fiction transports you to times and places that as Elvis fans you will be very familiar with. I hope that you’ll feel that you are actually there, Tupelo, Memphis....and maybe you’ll run into someone you recognise along the way!
My Jewelled Jumpsuit Creations are a homage to Elvis’ amazing stage wear. They take weeks to create and I hope you like them as much as I enjoy creating them.
First published in 2011 A Lifetime Of Love was my first compilation of short stories and poems.
It was well received by Elvis fans around the world and after many requests for more stories I published another book in 2019 - Welcome To My World.
in 2019 I published a short story 42 that I wrote specially for the anniversary that year.
COMING FOR CHRISTMAS 2020
A brand new short story
The Christmas Cardinal.

I have always loved Elvis’ iconic look. After my latest visit to Graceland in December 2019 I was thrilled that you can now get closer to the jumpsuits and appreciate the amazing designs and the work that went into making them.
When I got home I wanted to do something to celebrate Elvis’ style and so the Jewelled Jumpsuit Collection was born.
Each piece is unique (even if I create more than one of each suit, every one is subtly different and so totally unique).
The design is transferred onto cotton poplin which is then embroidered and beaded to recreate the stunning designs.
When finished it can either be framed and mounted alongside a picture of Elvis in the same outfit or mounted and framed individually.
Because of the intricate nature of the work each commission takes from 3 to 4 weeks to complete.
I LOVE creating these pieces and enjoy bringing the stunning designs to life for fans to add to their collections.
If you have a favourite jumpsuit and would like to commission a piece, use the Contact page to get in touch and I will be happy to give you an idea of the cost.
