If you’ve never ready my work, I suggest you pick your favourite genre (I write practically all of them), and select from the ‘books‘ menu above.

However, if you like just about everything, you’re in for a treat; my books have a little bit of everything in them.  Most can be read in any order with the exception of the ‘To Hide in Holly Springs‘ and ‘A Calamity Place Romance‘ series.

To get a taste for free, simply subscribe to my newsletter (above), and you’ll get a full length novel (Misunderstood- Book One in ‘A Calamity Place Romance Series’) as a thank you for subscribing.

All of my book pages contain the first chapter in full as a sample for you to enjoy.

I love to hear from readers…please feel free to contact me anytime at or via social media.


In 2010 I self-published my first book and I’ve been hooked ever since.

It’s difficult to choose a favourite genre, so I write just about all of them, from romance, YA, suspense, erotica, drama, memoir, even self-help.

Book ideas come to me all the time, so don’t ever ask me how I get past writer’s block….

The most frequent question I’ve been asked: which of my books was my favourite to write.  Impossible to answer, but if a gun was pointed at my head I would have to say ‘She Only Speaks to Butterflies‘.
