Work in progress

I don’t expect this page to change very often as my work in progress takes a long time to come to fruition.

Sometimes I feel like a butterfly, as I flit from one work to another. My brain is full to bursting with ideas but I limit myself to just a few at a time, jotting notes down and keeping files when others pop into my head uninvited.


Usually, at any given point in time I have three or four projects ongoing. I do lots of research, whether it’s a historical saga, a romantic comedy or science fiction, I need to know my characters, locations and important details before I can start to construct the story.

Then there’s the writing. I spend at least three full days each week - that’s 9 to 5 - on writing the next novel and devote the rest of the week to things like marketing! What a minefield that can sometimes be! On top of that, I’m always on the lookout to expand into new markets. At the moment I’m looking at audio books. I’m told it’s the way forward, so watch this space.

The third novel in my ‘WW2 Women of Courage’ series is now available for pre-order in all Amazon stores. Each book can be read as a stand alone novel, but might be better read in sequence. ‘Ingrid’s Mission,’ follows on from ‘Hannah’s Conflict’ and the final novel, ‘Freedom for Cassie’ is the one I’m working on right now. You can read an unedited sneak preview here.

My WW2 Women of Courage series are darker and more intense stories than I usually write. These novels deal with the war years from a slightly different angle. Read the opening pages of the first book, ‘Your Name is Jane’, here to get a flavour of what is to come.


The second book, ‘Hannah’s Conflict’, includes some graphic descriptions of the holocaust in Germany, so is not for the faint-hearted. You can read the first pages here. WARNING - SPOILERS if you haven’t read, ‘Your Name is Jane’ first.


I published my first paranormal crime novel last year. It’s a complete change of genre for me, and I loved writing this fast paced, ghostly story. You can read the first chapter of this dark and scary novel here.


Now available to order in all Amazon stores and from Create Space in paperback.
