My Books

You can read my novels in any order, although some characters appear in more than one book.

(See Recurring Characters)

Why Do Fools Fall in Love is set in Bath. A beautiful city, famed for its Roman baths, there is always some kind of filming going on, from costume dramas to detective thrillers. This inspired me to write about Shelby, the reluctant minder to a famous actor.

Smoke Gets in Your Eyes is about Caitlin, a hotelier accused of murdering her husband. I had the idea to write it after joining a gym.

For A Girl’s Best Friend I wanted to create a kind of ‘anti-heroine’ and came up with Danielle, who has been so let down by the people in her life, she feels diamonds are the only thing she can depend on.

Breathless was inspired by my passion for family history. The only thing keeping Lainey in Port Rell is her dream of finding the long lost wreck of the Mary Eliza. But what if an ancient wreck isn’t the only thing waiting to be discovered?

My latest book, Nemesis, is about Natalie, whose obsession with solving an old, notorious murder might very well be the death of her.

What You’re Proposing is a new series of romantic comedy novellas, starting with The Indecent Proposal.

As well as writing my own books, I also contribute to the Sunlounger anthologies: over forty short stories from your favourite authors.
