    1. Hi Susan.

      Just drinking my morning mug of tea and smiling. Getting a message like this is always lovely, and does mean a lot to me. I’m Really glad you enjoyed the books. ๐Ÿ™‚


      *If you’d like to leave an Amazon review for the books I’ve very much appreciate it. They’re great for giving other readers confidence they might enjoy them too.


  3. I just finished your book Cold Sweats & Vignettes and I’m now your latest fan . I can’t wait to download one of your full-length stories and read some more of your creative stories. THANK YOU. Barbara


    1. Hi Caroline

      I donโ€™t, although I hope I researched each well enough to properly and respectfully represent them.

      Greg and Beth, and their individual challenges, I hope, help to convey the books themes; one of those is I believe as people we all have experiences and difficulties that can help us to empathise with issues other people face, and thatโ€™s something we should all probably try to do more often. ๐Ÿ™‚


  4. Hi, I was given Death stalks Kettle st for Christmas, it was amazing so I bought where the dead walk, then Vessel and I have just bought crows cottage. Wow, each one of those books was brilliant, I’ve a new favourite author, Death stalks Kettle St was amazing but I could easily read them all again. Can’t wait to start Crows cottage. Keep em coming.

    P.S I’m also a huge Knights Templar fan and couldn’t put down Vessel, a perfect ending.


    1. Thanks so much Phil. ๐Ÿ™‚

      It doesnโ€™t get much better than hearing something like this. Iโ€™m really glad you enjoyed the books, and if you promise to keep reading them Iโ€™ll promise to do my best to make them worth your time.

      All the best
