Hello everyone! I’m excited to announce that the Jagged Line is now available in paperback so if that’s what you’ve been waiting for, you can buy it here:

To celebrate, I’m offering a free, signed paperback copy to one lucky UK reader in this month’s competition.  All you have to do is email me at with the Subject Heading: November Competition, and then quote the tag line on the front cover of The Jagged Line.

The winner will be randomly selected on the 1st December and announced shortly afterwards.

I’d also like to take this moment to say a huge thank you to all of you who continue to read my books and support them with your reviews.

My romantic suspense novel, Shadow Watcher, is gaining ground and it seems that quite a lot of my thriller readers love a bit of romance too! Who said that crime and love don’t mix?  I tried my hardest to ditch the romance in it but it had a mind of its own, and in the end, I just went along for the ride! Hope you do too. This is the e-book link if you’d like to take a look on Amazon UK: or here for US:

Well, that’s more than enough from me!

As Always … Happy Reading and I look forward to announcing the winner of the competition in due course!


FINALLY … I’m nearly there!

What a roller-coaster ride this month has been. But so exciting! After what feels like a lifetime, not only do I have my second book published but book no. 3 is also a whisker away from being released.  I’m just waiting for the adjustments to my cover and a final read-through by my husband (my… Continue Reading


Just before Christmas, the first draft of my new novel, The Jagged Line, was returned to me by my editor. When I originally started writing, I had no idea how long it actually takes to write a novel – and by that I mean from start to the actual finished work, where it’s ready to… Continue Reading


Shadow Watcher is my next exciting project to follow on from Cry From The Grave.  It’s another mystery/suspense but with an extra helping of romance that developed on its own and wouldn’t go away!  It won’t be long now before it’s ready to go but I had such great feedback and reviews on CFG that I… Continue Reading

Getting Ready For The Next Novel

Ask any writer and they’ll tell you it’s hard work trying to write and lead a life as well! I don’t think people realise how many hours go into producing that final manuscript. (Or maybe I’m just SLOW). I read of an author recently who bemoaned the fact he’d spent over 900 hours writing his… Continue Reading

The Beautiful Island of Crete

Okay, so my worst fears have been confirmed! I’m having a hilarious time here in Crete with four great “old” friends but the xxxxx won’t let me sleep! We’ve taken a villa and haven’t been to bed before 2.30 a.m. any night so far! Talk about women growing old disgracefully! It’s a lovely spot where… Continue Reading
