With the hot, hot, weather we’re having, I’m finding it hard keeping up my energy levels and getting everything done on time and I know some of you feel the same. But it’s been some time since I gave you an update on my writing and publishing for some time – so here goes…
Summer has been crazy! I’m busy with writing and I don’t have a holiday coming up until late September! Roll on late September!
1. DEVIL’S BRAE ~ A Dark Minds Novel (NEW SERIES PLANNED!) Coming soon!
The first in the series is already written and lodged with my editor. I’m hoping she’ll finish the edits in time for an August launch. The new book, Devil’s Brae is set in Scotland. The main protagonist visits a remote village in Scotland, in hope of recovering from the death of a young child and her sister. When she gets the feeling she is being watched and odd, creepy things start happening she realises she is not alone. Why does she feel so threatened and who is behind it? Coming August/September.
Because I’ve received masses of mail from fans (yes fans and I love you all!), asking for another romance, I’m now well into writing my next. This is set in England, just before Christmas and is entitled A Seasonal Affair. Catherine finds herself out of a job, and when the roof in her flat collapses…out of a home too - just weeks before Christmas. With a five year old in tow, she is in desperate circumstances. Can Jack, help? Will Catherine unbend and give in to his overtures of friendship, help and possibly love?
I’m writing like a mad woman! (yes I know) – and hope to release this in late Autumn in time for Christmas.
Most of you are familiar with my Diana Rivers Series – mystery, suspense, psychological thrillers. So far there are five in the series: The Assassins’ Village, Children of the Plantation, The Surgeon’s Blade, Camera Action…Murder! And Childhunt.
I’m planning to add a sixth to the series, set in Portugal and will get started on this in the Autumn - Watch this space!
With seemingly zillions of books competing with mine, I have to promote! But that’s good news for you as readers, because often the promotion offers my books at discounted prices. So coming up in August:

Later in the year I’ll have more to tell you…in the meantime this is all for now!! Take care and talk to you soon. Thank you for dropping by.
