Christmas Special and Freebies – December 2021

Father Christmas and the Seagulls Encounter

The time has come to prepare for Christmas – stocking up on food and drink, buying presents, getting ready for the kids to be at home ALL DAY . . . and thinking ahead to when it will be all over for another year.

Yes, for some it is a time of giving, getting, singing, drinking, renewing religious and family ties and finally. . . looking forward to a well-earned REST. I hope 2022 will be a better, safer and more enjoyable year.

Without further ado, let me wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!!!

I have just finished my latest novel “Unexpected Unintended” after eight months, in between other creative work. Here is the first chapter:

This story is a complex interweaving of personal tragedies all stemming from the spreading of lies and deception in a  small town. There is a wayward psychiatrist who has a baby with her patient’s husband as the starting point for a cascading effect over two families and a cruel criminal who knows how to control others.

They all meet their match in Detective Inspector Sutton who carries out an intricate strategy to fight for justice, whilst fighting his own demons – the loss of his daughter. Everyone thinks they know the truth about certain events but time and again, they learn that lies, rumors and gossip have affected their thinking and their subsequent actions.

There are no winners except the truth, which is revealed by pitting one against the other. A young psychologist and her delusional client steer the story through to its conclusion by focusing on a painting, a book and self-awakening.

This was a difficult first adult novel to write because of the necessary complexity in the first chapter to explain the premise of the plot.



More snippets from my books. Most earlier stories and novels are centered on a strong female lead role – one is science fiction (saves the world) and there is a trilogy about RUBY, the reluctant MI6 spy, recruited at just 16.
