I write crime, no shocker there. I try to keep my writing real, so some are hard-boiled, some of it is gentler. Thing is, I write about humans, and my characters don’t always do what I was expecting them to, so there are often surprises along the way. When reading you might squirm, you might cry, you may even hate me, but I hope you’ll enjoy the ride.
For Elaine Blake, marriage was never a word, it was a sentence. For 25 years, they had all been lying to her.
Now the liar in chief, her husband Jason, is reported dead. Information he was supposed to hand to his spy bosses is missing.
Then, a phone call – a foster son in serious trouble. And news that her husband may not be dead after all. Jason doesn’t matter, but Elaine will do anything to save her son.
Even if she has to race to Paris, dodge assassins and hunt for evidence the best of spies can’t find.
Pen y Cwm: Cobb is running from his traumatic past. He hopes that burying himself in a small village on a Welsh mountainside will help, but Branwen Jones, local vet and member of the Mountain Rescue Team, will not let him.
Efficient and organised, Branwen firmly believes that getting Cobb actively involved in village life is the only way to help him recover. And it doesn’t hurt that Cobb is ruggedly good looking.
London: Jay Whitney is a grey-hat hacker, breaking into systems for the sheer fun of the challenge.

With two hit-men on his heels, Jay flees to Wales, a decision that will have deadly consequences for Branwen, Cobb and the people of Pen y Cwm.
While investigating a cold case, DCI Matthew Piper dredges up the unexpected, which becomes all the more unwelcome when it links to a current missing persons enquiry.
