Living with Postcards
Published in 2015. 131 pages.
This non-fiction book describes my close relationship with old postcards, mainly fantasy ones. I have collected them since the nineteen seventies and now own over two thousand of these charming, beautiful, historic items. I started fanatically collecting them whilst writing my thesis on Fantasy in Postcards at Art College, where I was studying for a graphic design degree. My thesis won me a first with distinction, whereas my graphic art annoyingly gained me only a 2:2. I was asked by my art history tutor to lecture on the subject of Fantasy in Postcards, but as I was only twenty-one at the time I did not feel ready and declined. All the cards in my book are from my own large collection.
A perfect present from the past
Living with Postcards is available on Amazon in both paperback and Kindle editions. Link to the paperback edition of Living with Postcards on Amazon
A Slice of the Seventies – Book One of The Mug Trilogy
This first book in the loosely autobiographical Mug Trilogy tells the story of Jersey-born Mug, a troubled girl from a recently broken home. It covers her time as a sixteen-year-old at the Isle of Wight Music Festival in 1970, the year she follows a guru and tracks her tumultuous time as an art student in Coventry. It follows her time with fellow-student, David, and the dramatic events which lead on from their graduation.
An audiobook of A Slice of the Seventies, narrated by Tracey Norman, is available on Audible, Amazon, and iTunes.
A Slice of the Seventies is available on Amazon in Kindle, paperback and audiobook editions. Link to the Kindle edition of A Slice of the Seventies on Amazon
The words in this loosely autobiographical book were triggered by the entanglement between Mug, a recently divorced, disinherited, temporarily sex-obsessed woman, and Michael, a complex, mendacious, Scottish baggage handler. Destiny threw this Gordian knot her way one night in early 2004. She was an honest, trusting, troubled woman in her late forties. He was an enigma in his late thirties who was hiding many shocking secrets. Her original plan was to write about their unusual story as a gift to him, taking the opportunity to describe her life prior to their meeting because it shaped how she felt about him, why she tolerated what others might deem unacceptable and dictated how she lived her future life. The purpose of this book changed into a desperate effort to make sense of unfolding, bizarre events and to help them both deal with the aftermath.
The Lying Scotsman is available on Amazon in both paperback and Kindle editions at: Link to the Kindle edition of The Lying Scotsman on Amazon
Straws – Book Three of The Mug Trilogy
Published in 2015. 256 pages.
The aftermath of Mug’s time whirled in The Lying Scotsman’s vortex. This book documents her struggles to achieve a happy outcome in her relationship with men, family, work, and life in general. It is the third book in the third-person autobiographical Mug Trilogy. Who will be Mug’s final straw, and what prompted her to write and publish books in her sixties?
Straws is available on Amazon in both paperback and Kindle editions. Free with Kindle Unlimited.
The main action takes place in rural Kent and London in 2015. It looks at the dramatic incidents, challenges and temptations in the past and present lives of four couples of varying ages, professions and sexual persuasions that are all linked by either blood or friendship. Just as in life, the negative, selfish, sometimes violent natures of some of the characters in Potholes and Magic Carpets wreak havoc on the innocent. A tale of not so simple folk.
Potholes and Magic Carpets is available on Amazon in both paperback and Kindle editions. An audiobook edition, narrated by Tracey Norman, is available on Audible, Amazon, and iTunes. Published on Amazon in 2015. 298 pages. Link to the paperback edition of Potholes and Magic Carpets on Amazon.
The Trouble With Trouble
Published on Amazon in 2020. 382 pages.
THE TROUBLE WITH TROUBLE is a powerful erotic thriller set in a Sheffield police station. The story follows on from The Trouble With Liam but can be read as a standalone. When a forensic scientist invents a potent sexual arousal cream called Trouble, it causes huge problems for DCI Jeremy Cosgrove, his beautiful sex-addicted liaison officer, Kate Pendleton, and two other women who also work at the station. It’s a tale of blackmail, lust, secrets, hidden identities, and murder. The Trouble With Trouble is like Line of Duty but with explicit sex.
Be warned. As with book 1 in the Trouble series, The Trouble with Trouble isn’t a book for the faint-hearted or easily shocked. I’ve written two more books in the Trouble series which can also be read as standalones. Trouble In Cornwall is now published and book 4, Troubled, will be out in late 2020.
Available in Kindle and paperback editions. Free to Kindle Unlimited subscribers. Link to the Kindle edition on Amazon: https://amzn.to/3eM9Kte
Trouble In Cornwall
Published on Amazon in 2020. 367 pages.

Jessie is Liam O’Sullivan’s wife from book 1, The Trouble With Liam. Kate catches the eye of Russell Bell, Jessie’s charismatic but deeply flawed Jamaican boyfriend. All hell breaks loose in this third book in the Trouble series.
