Welcome to my website!  I hope you find it interesting and easy to navigate. 

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 and Book 2 in the Anna Davies Mystery Series.  For more information on my books and how I came to write them, please click on BOOKS.  

GUEST AUTHORS features my interviews with other authors. My guest this week is Catherine Berry, author of  the memoir “But You Are in France, Madame”.  (I just love this title!).  Born in Australia, Catherine and her husband decided to take their three children to France for a year.  Her book details their adventures, the difficulty of making themselves understood in French and how the planned year turned into three.  Catherine also shares with us an excerpt from the chapter "No Parking".

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

Hot off the Press

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!

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.
