Debut novel

imageMy debut novel Blind Witness was published last year. It is available for sale through Waterstones online, Amazon UK, and directly from my publishers, Victorina Press.

I currently have 11 5 star reviews on Amazon. Here is one, A ‘spiffingly’ good murder mystery story set in the 1920’s with a cast of diverse characters, thrown together within the traditional weekend house party setting. The narrative plunges onward keeping the reader guessing as to who is the murderer. The book is both gripping and entertaining, with an unusual husband and wife team of sleuths, and the author has sensitive insights on the emotional pain of losing one’s sight and the physical dilemmas and challenges of being blind.

The ISBN is 978-0-9957547-5-1


Exciting news!

HFront cover thumbnailaving spent the last year reading, reading, reading and writing, my debut novel Blind Witness is to be published by Victorina Press.  I am so excited but also very daunted by the idea of my book out there!

Welcome to my blog

I have set up this blog to document my road to publication. I am fascinated by the Golden Age of crime so I am currently writing my first crime novel set in 1922. I am now on my second draft. So far working full time as a librarian in a public library in the UK it has taken me three years to get to this point.

I thought I would begin by listing and reviewing all the books I have used in research and background. They will not be in order as I have just read a fantastic and thorough non- fiction book by the excellent Martin Edwards – The Golden Age of Murder. This book was so good that having read it on my Kindle I have bought it in Hardback so that I can ( sacre bleu!) annotate it. There is nothing like the actual feel of a book is there?
