I write crime, historical and contemporary. Even if I tried to write a romance, somebody would die in it!
My contemporary detective is classical soprano, Georgia Pattison. She has undergone a re-birth from the original print version of the first full length novel in the Georgia Pattison Series, Dearly Ransomed Soul, published in 2008. New setting, new killer. I decided Georgia needed an introduction to readers and you can find the 23,000 word novella, Whistles After Dark, published in early 2016 on Amazon and all outlets from Smashwords.
Dearly Ransomed Soul is now available from all major digital retailers
The Midnight Clear, the first Georgia Christmas short story is now available.
Laid in Earth, the second full-length Georgia novel will appear in early 2017.
The Tudor Enigma is a crime fantasy series, set in an alternate Tudor universe. My protagonist, Luke Ballard, came into being through a mix of my love for Tudor history, crime stories and a touch of magic. After reading Alison Weir’s books about Anne Boleyn, where she posits that Anne and Henry had a blood incapability causing her to miscarry each pregnancy after Elizabeth, I had a “what if?” moment. What-if that had not been the case and she carried the boy child she lost to term in 1534. And what-if they mainly lived at Hampton Court and an apothecary in the Outer Green was also a magician, an elemancer – using the elements to perform spells.
And so The Tudor Enigma series, featuring Luke Ballard was born. King Henry IX is now on the throne and his mother, Anne Boleyn, is also an elemancer. The possibilities are endless and immensely enjoyable to plot and write. |The three books in the series are: Court of Conspiracy, Taste of Treason and Mantle of Malice.
