NEWSFLASH : Publication Date for Relative Strangers

It’s been a long time coming but It’s finally here.  I am delighted to announce that Relative Strangers, the first in my vampire series for adults (old and young alike but there is some mild profanity so be warned), will be available for download from 23 August 2014.

It’s not been an easy journey, if writing ever is, and rather peculiarly I’m doing it all again as I thrash out the second book in the series, Death in the Family. Look out for that in 2015.

In the meantime, let me introduce you to Sophie Morgan – 23, practical, Welsh, prone to occasional profanity, and seemingly a vampire magnet. Sophie has always done the right thing. She’s caused no stress for her family, worked hard through university, has taken a successful leap onto the career ladder and nurtured a reasonably healthy bank balance.  It’s no small surprise then when, on a post relationship break-up, mini-break to Antwerp, she pursues a pair of thieves who steal her friend’s handbag.  But this is only the start of her world being turned upside down. She quickly learns that vampires exist, her neighbors aren’t what they seem and new boyfriends can be found in the strangest of situations.

So is there any of me in the heroine? Well, perhaps a little. There are a few bits of action in the book which are based on real life events. I’m not going to spoil it for you and tell you which ones they are. I’ll leave that up to your imagination!

Relative Strangers is available for pre-order from Smashwords so if you can’t wait till the 23rd to order, then order it now and get it sent straight to you e-reader on the big day! (

In the meantime, the first four chapters are available for FREE, yes that’s free people, on Wattpad. Fill your boots.
