Questions to the Author
What inspired the characters of Hannah and Natasha and how did the plot idea come to you?
– Originally the novel was more of a romance believe it or not! But it was so strange … as the novel took off, Natasha’s personality seemed to take over and I had a real struggle keeping her in her place! The novel got darker but I couldn’t quite ditch the romance entirely … as you will see when you read it! I think every mother could relate to Hannah’s situation and everyone I hope, will be rooting for her!
Your detectives seem to have developed a following. Will you do another book in the series?
I hadn’t originally planned it as a series, but people really seemed to take to the detectives, Harry and DCI Murray, and I kept being asked if I was doing a follow up. My second book The Jagged Line has just come out and Harry’s story emerges with more prominence in this one. I love the police characters although of course my books aren’t strongly police procedural. They’re more psychological drama, about people (who could perhaps be any one of us), with dilemmas. What would you do if this suddenly happened? How would you react if that happened? That’s the idea that always grabs me – the thought of the extraordinary happening to the ordinary!
Any More Books on the way?
Well, as I say, The Jagged Line (the 2nd in the series) has just come out and is available now on Amazon, and my 3rd novel will be coming out within the next week or two, I hope. It’s a stand-alone romantic suspense called Shadow Watcher and I had it floating around in my head for ages! It’s a bit different to my first two novels. Still a psychological suspense but with a stronger romance thread, and every bit as enthralling I hope.

Girl on a Train (SAVE 82%)
Headstrong Journalist, Anna Rothman, knows what suicide looks like – her own husband killed himself five years earlier. When Elly Swift, an agitated passenger beside her on a train, leaves a locket in Anna’s bag before jumping onto the tracks, Anna starts asking awkward questions. But everything points to suicide and the police close the case.
Anna, however, believes Elly’s fears for Toby, her young nephew, missing since being snatched from St Stephen’s church six months ago, fail to explain the true reason behind Elly’s distress. Through a series of hidden messages Elly left behind, Anna embarks on a dangerous crusade to track down Toby and find Elly’s killer.
But nothing is as it seems and Anna opens a can of worms that throws into question even her own husband’s suicide – before the threads of the mystery converge in an astonishing conclusion.
