‘I’ve been writing for many years now. Apart from my childhood and teenage writings, it all started again ten years ago. Inspired by theatre and bringing words to life, I began writing for stage. That inspiration soon developed into a love of novel and screenplay writing.
I’ve had two separate productions of my plays, one at The Etcetera Theatre in Camden, and another that I personally directed, shown at The Norbury Theatre, in Droitwich Spa. My feature film, Penny for the Guy is in its final stages of production and will be completed by the end of 2020.
I began my novel writing career with a ghost story aimed at teenagers, called Flame. Since then, I’ve well and truly contracted the novel writing bug. I followed that novel with psychological thriller, To Let.
My most popular novel was my Turkey based holiday crime thriller, Whispers Beneath the Pines, that was until DI Gina Harte was created.
Through the years, my love of horror also developed into a love of crime thriller and drama. I will confess to having a romantic comedy in me. I took a little time out to write novella, Meet me at Marmaris Castle.
I’m still absolutely bowled over by the fact that Bookouture offered me a publishing deal. I now introduce you to my most ambitious and popular books to date, the Detective Inspector Gina Harte series’.
Music and loud voices echo through the woods surrounding her. Wiping her tears, she hears the rustle of leaves close by.
She has no time to scream before a hand covers her mouth and her entire world goes black.
In a patch of forest on the outskirts of a small town, five teenage school friends prepare to spend a night away from home.
Carrying their tents and sleeping bags, they laugh and joke as they make their way into the darkest part of the woods, away from prying eyes.
But as the sun rises the following morning, only four are left alive.
Devastated, Leah’s friends all swear they didn’t see or hear anything.
Her best friend sobs as she recounts what she remembers from that night – dancing, roasting marshmallows, sipping warm cans of beer by the fire – but is it grief, or is she hiding something?
What happened to Naomi in the hour that no one can account for?
And what troubled past lies behind the perfect manners of the boy who organised the trip, and who is prepared to lie to keep it buried?
As the cracks in their stories grow, it’s clear one of them is lying, and one of them is next . . . .
Perfect for fans of Angela Marsons, Cara Hunter and Clare Mackintosh, One Left Behind is a thrilling crime novel that will have you hooked from the very first page!
