I'm delighted (and honoured!) to be working once again with my good friend and award-winning photographic artist, Heather Burns, of Heather Burns Photography:

Heather designed the cover for my first novel, Downhill. Her creative genius will grace the cover of my next novel, Dark Dreams. I can't wait to see her design ideas!

I'm excited to announce that I will be visiting my native Derbyshire for a few days in February 2020, to promote Downhill.

Eckington Library Readers Group - 15:00-16:00

Sunday 16th February:
High Peak Bookstore & Cafe, Ashbourne Road, Buxton, SK17 9PY - from 14:00 onwards

LOCAL AUTHORS EVENT - This excellent event will feature a wealth of local Derbyshire authors, giving guidance and answering questions regarding the writing and publishing process. Featured authors will include Sophie Draper and Roz Watkins among others, as well as myself and my good friend, the enigmatic J.B. Bass, author of the debut novel, 89, Manning Place (a Victorian Detective novel).
