I’m the author of four novels so far. The third, What She Lost was published in March 2017, and the fourth, If I Should Fall, will be out in summer 2018. This website is packed with info about me and my books. You can read reviews and keep up to date with what’s going on in my writing life by reading my blog – I always aim to post every two or three weeks, but it can be four or five, depending on what’s going on. You can also check out my news and forthcoming events, and if you’re a budding writer yourself, there’s a selection of articles that may be of interest, and I’ll be adding to this regularly. You can also find details of my workshops, critique service, and mentoring packages.
I hope you’ll stay for a bit and have a good look around.
Here’s the blurb: (cover image to come)
If I Should Fall
He stood by her during the darkest days… where is he now?
When the police arrive at Leah’s door one afternoon with news that her husband has been involved in a car accident, she’s convinced they must be mistaken. Adrian is in another city, at a conference that doesn’t finish until six – they spoke on the phone an hour ago.
It turns out the conference finished at noon. Adrian lied. What was he doing, driving along a local road at that time? What secrets has he been keeping?
Adrian is Leah’s soulmate. Her one true love. He is the reason Leah is gradually rebuilding her life after the heartbreak and tragedy that shattered their dreams of family. After all she has suffered – everything they have both endured – she cannot believe Adrian would hurt her.
As Leah slowly uncovers Adrian’s devastating secret, her life begins to take a path she knows she should not follow, but to which she is irresistibly drawn; a path that ultimately leads her back to the terrible event that destroyed her world.
And here’s the lowdown on What She Lost:
Eleanor and her mother Marjorie have always had a difficult relationship and although they’ve tried, they have somehow just failed to connect. Now Marjorie has Alzheimer’s, and as her memory fades, her grip on what she has kept hidden begins to loosen. When she calls her daughter to say, ‘There’s something I have to tell you’, Eleanor hopes this will be the moment she learns the truth about the terrible secret that has cast a shadow over both their lives.
But Marjorie’s memory is failing fast and she can’t recall what she wanted to say. Eleanor knows time is running out, and as she tries to gently uncover the truth before it becomes lost inside her mother’s mind forever, she begins to discover what really happened when she was a child – and why…
