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.


At any given point in time I have three or four projects ongoing. I spend lots of time researching my work, 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.

Right now, I’m  writing the latest book in my Women of Wakefield series. This might be the final one in this series, but I haven’t made my mind up yet. My home town of Wakefield was and still is full of interesting characters, and the second world war is a setting I love to research and write about. Watch this space.



If you’d like to read the first unedited chapter, you’ll find it here. Please don’t read this if you haven’t read the two previous books, Happiness for Hazel and Hardships for Hazel, as this might spoil the story for you. Don’t forget to let me know what you think. I always love to hear from my readers, my contact details are here.


I published my first paranormal crime novel a while ago and was disappointed when it didn’t get much interest, even though I did my best to market it as this was a new genre for me. It’s a complete change of from what I usually write about but I’ve always had an interest in the kind of things that go bump in the night, give me goose bumps or scare me half to death. I loved writing this fast paced, ghostly story and had ideas to turn it into a series. You can read the first chapter of this dark and scary novel here. Please let me know what you think. Contact me here. I’d love to know your thoughts on this work.


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