Soldiers NEWS: I'm really excited to announce that the first draft of "Evil Eye - A Lissa Blackwood Thriller", the opening book in my new series of Conspiracy Thrillers, has been completed!

Research for the book began towards the end of 2016, planning lasted until about May 2017, and an initial draft was completed in August 2018. I quickly realised that there was a structural problem in that initial draft which has then taken four months to fix. I'm very pleased to have taken that extra time to get this first draft completed because the story is now a lot stronger!

I'm loving writing in this new genre and enjoying the adventures that these wonderful characters are having!

An article from my author's blog pages...

Book 2 should be completed more quickly as much of the initial preparation for the series is already in place. In the meantime I'm looking for beta readers for 'Evil Eye' and starting to think about seeking an agent to help me sell the books... exciting times!
