When I sold Portuguese rights to Leabhar Books last year, little did I expect so much support! This gorgeous video, with a lovely English language soundtrack, cuts to the heart of the story. I hope you enjoy.
My editor challenged me to write a story in time for Valentine’s Day, so I did! And what better story than how Thomas Blake & Martha Ryan met in 1966. Such a romantic tale.
‘…a quick and beautiful read, with lots of emotions’
Only time itself will erase our love…
On the edge of the Great Southern Ocean, an old jetty offers a haven for those seeking solace. A place by the sea to think. Plan. And dream.
As the daughter of the region’s wealthiest family, Martha Ryan has everything a girl could ask for. Money means nothing because her soul longs for adventure, love and a family of her own.
Thomas Blake is an artist weighed down by duty. Expected to follow his father into employment by the Ryan family as stationmaster, he yearns for the freedom to paint.
A chance meeting at the jetty one dawn changes both their lives. But will the expectations and prejudices of their families destroy their future?
Fall in love with Thomas and Martha in Taming the Wind, prequel of The Stationmaster’s Cottage. Perfect as a standalone with its own happy ever after, or follow the lives and loves of the residents in River’s End across all six books.
I’m so excited to share news of a new series. When I wrote Jasmine Sea, a new character appeared and demanded to be introduced. Dr Charlotte Dean made quite an impression in that book and then in The Secrets of Palmerston House.
But Charlotte had other things to do, so moved to a beautiful small town named Kingfisher Falls.
The Christmas Tree Thief is the first of her own series, mysteries in a whodunit style with just a dash (or sometimes a deluge) of danger.
The next two books are underway. Deadly Secrets is due for an early 2020 release, and Deadly Secrets around mid 2020.
I hope you’ll love Charlotte’s new life and cannot wait to share the whole series.
I love both!
For the sheer convenience, a phone or reader allows me to have a book almost anywhere, and lots of them.
There is something so wonderful though about the feel and smell of a paperback. And I love to hold the books I write in my hands. So special!
Did you know I also publish in large print paperback? My eyesight is not what it used to be, so a larger print is perfect. The whole River’s End series is available in large print as well as regular print at Amazon, from my website, and some other booksellers.
Either way, I think we can agree… we love books!
Where did she go for all those years? This short (11k) prequel tells all. It can be read first, or alongside any of the series.
With the arrival of Martha, I’ve moved all ebook versions of the series in Kindle Unlimited. Paperbacks are still available from selected booksellers and this website.
For the third time, Jasmine Sea has been awarded for its beautiful cover, this time by Top Shelf magazine, over fierce competition. My thanks, as always, to Steam Power Studios for the stunning design.
So thrilled that my brand new release, The Secrets of Palmerston House, is one of the top 10 Mystery/Thriller covers and has a chance of going into the finals.
I would love your vote and all it takes is one click – no email or registration required. Follow the link and find the thumbnails. Vote on the one you like most (hint, it is a green cover with a bride and a name rhyming with The Secrets of Palmerston House, lol), and that is it!
Last year, Jasmine Sea was voted Kobo’s Romance Cover of 2017, and was 2nd overall. Both covers are the creations of Steam Power Studios, who have done all five of my covers to date. Isn’t it pretty?
