Good evening all,

I hope you are all keeping well and reading lots! Happy world book day to you all wherever you may be in the world. I haven’t forgotten you I promise and your support as always, continues to mean a great deal to me as I continue to write my next novel with a great deal of excitement and anticipation…

I’ll be back soon with further news!

Take care all,


This is why I write…

Good evening to you all from the UK! I just wanted to share a quick update with you all and thank you also for your continued support. I understand I have been absent from my blog in recent months but the majority of my endeavours have shifted me onto other social media platforms.

However, I haven’t forgotten you and I will be back on a more regular basis soon. Chasing Shadows is getting great feedback and I wanted to share just one of the amazing reviews that I have received so far.

I am currently working on my next stand alone thriller which I hope to release late september. Don’t forget you can still pick up either of my books for just 99p in the UK and the equivalent worldwide…

Take care and thanks again!
