I write twisty, page-turning psychological thrillers. Many of my books have achieved those elusive number one best-selling tags on Amazon and have thousands of four and five star reviews on Amazon and Goodreads.

My Books

My first stand-alone psychological thriller, I Want You Gone, was published by Inkubator Books in 2019 and since then it’s been a crazy and amazing ride. Today, I’m the author of fourteen novels and I’m now a full-time author. Talk about living the dream! Prior to that things were tough as I had a rare bone cancer called Ewing’s Sarcoma. Writing (knitting and more latterly, painting) has been my salvation. It keeps me busy and takes my mind off pain.

I’ve been lucky enough to be called a ‘master storyteller’. I describe my books as being about scary things happening to ordinary people.

My novels are all available as paperbacks and e-books, and six are coming out as audiobooks this year. These include: The Visitors, The New Neighbour, The Arrangement, What She Knew, The Only Child and Deserve To Die. Other books include: The Influencer, Roses Are Red, You Are Mine, Fatal Fortune, Fatal Flowers and Fatal Finale. My latest release (May 2021) is The Second Wife.

Stay up-to-date

You won’t have to worry about missing anything. Every new edition of the newsletter goes directly to your inbox.

I can’t wait to share my stories and paintings with you. I’ll be giving these away for free initially but some of my stories and paintings will be for paying subscribers only going forwards.

Thank you so much for joining me on this creative journey!

Best wishes,
