Welcome to my website!  

My first book Missing in Egypt, is a romantic travel mystery.   Winston - a Horse's Tale is one for horse lovers and Dangerous Associations is a crime mystery.  My latest book, Missing at Sea, is another romantic travel story.  Click on BOOKS for more information on my books and how I came to write them.

GUEST AUTHORS features my interviews with other authors.  My guest author this week is Kevin Bates, a self-confessed sports junkie who writes poetry.  Kevin is currently working on a ‘poetry cookbook’ and in this interview he shares a couple of poems from his books.

If you are an athor and would like to be featured please let me know via the form on the About/Contact Me page.  

WORLDWIDE AUTHORS was set up by UK authors Sarah Stuart and Rebecca Bryn to improve our reach across the world.  I am sure you will enjoy reading about these two exciting authors and their novels. Other members are Marc Estes from the USA and Jackie Mae and her granddaughter Alison Taylor, also from the USA. 
Large Print Edition now available!

Missing at Sea, the second book in the Anna Davies Mystery series is now available at https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06XFKJTV4/

Three years on from Egypt, Anna Davies embarks on her first cruise with best friend Sandra.  A few days into the holiday they are woken by three blasts from the ship’s foghorn, indicating that someone has fallen overboard. A woman is lost at sea; the ship turns around to search for her, but she has disappeared into the night.  

Was it suicide?  Did she lose her balance and fall - or was there foul play involved?  Did her husband push her? Would anyone be able to prove whether this was murder or an unfortunate accident?  

What a perfect place to stage a murder!

Authors have been asked to share why they love to read - well, why wouldn't you? It's a chance to escape the realities of life and to step into another world. Sometimes it's just a nice easy way to travel, other times it's a torrid love affair or a feel-good story. Whatever you like to read try to spend at least a few minutes with a good book on April 23.

If you've visited my website previously you will know that one of the things I really enjoy is travelling.  This year we had a driving holiday in the US and Canada.  The highlights were Yellowstone National Park - amazing and The Rockies in Canada - truly breathtaking.   You will see what I mean from these photos.
