My article about  Morocco is on Marie Laval’s blog today. I’d be ever so grateful if you could drop by the site and leave a comment.



Our latest World Romance Writers anthology is now on pre-order – six romantic suspense stories set in Africa.

This was a challenge for me since I’ve never tried this genre before. Mine is called ‘An Object of Desire’ and is about two girl students on holiday in Morocco who are being stalked by a couple of undesirables and have no idea why.

Anyway, here it is. It will be at the low price for the launch, then at some point in the future it will go up to the usual price. So get your pre-order in now.

Flipside in the All Author Cover Contest

I’ve been so caught up with the election that I forgot to campaign for Flipside in the All Author Cover Contest, now in top 100 apparently. Since it only has 3 votes so far I can only imagine that it will take very few more to win. So, please can I beg anyone with a couple of minutes spare to vote?


Thank you so much

New Release –  Great Romance Anthology – Only 99c!!!! 


Nine of us got together to write an anthology based on the theme of getting a letter from Europe. They’re all good and some of them are really brilliant. Go for it.


What if a life-changing letter arrived in today's mail? Now imagine it leads to love and adventure! From the northern British Isles, across the mainland of Europe, and on to Turkey, nine international Award-winning and Multi-published Romance Authors share spellbinding love stories told across time. This collection includes contemporary, historical and futuristic time travel romances touched by magic. And each begins with a letter... 

MORE THAN WISHES by Rose Anderson 
Raised on a sailor’s tales of adventure and eager for her own, Stella Cunningham answers an advertisement for a traveling companion to the Orient. There she purchases an ancient bronze lamp with a secret. In the land of flying carpets and genies, Stella is about to have the adventure of a lifetime. 

ALL OR NOTHING by Denysé Bridger 
Casino Coranthos is a playground for wealthy, bored people, but for some, it’s also a place where dreams and promises change lives forever. When a letter becomes part of an unexpected inheritance for Ryann Thomson, her aunt’s past brings her face to face with Ariston Katsaros, a man haunted by loss and driven by anger. As the attraction between them sizzles and grows, can Ryann convince him she isn’t looking to rob him or his father, or will she become a casualty of Ari’s vengeance? In this dangerous game of all or nothing, her heart and future happiness are at stake. 

In 2084, time travelling detective, Tandi Reynolds, tipped off by a letter, needs to stop an assassin before he kills a newly elected leader. When she finds him in 1874, Vienna, it’s clear a cold blooded killer is only one of her problems. Time is fleeting, so falling in love with her contact, the charismatic Count Leopold Radetzky von Radetz, is a bad idea, but keeping her feelings in check is not easy when she relies on him for her every need. 

COME DATE ME IN PARIS by Helena Fairfax 
When a letter arrives telling Alice she's won a place on a TV blind date show, she should be excited - only trouble is, the show involves cooking for your date...and Alice can't cook. Forced to throw herself on the mercy of her chef neighbour, Edmond, Alice asks him for lessons. But will she be cooking up a romance...or cooking up disaster? 

What do a reality TV star and a Sardinian billionaire have in common? Sophie Hayes buys and sells the contents of abandoned storage units. When an invitation arrives out of the blue to personally deliver an antique desk to an exotic island, she decides on a whim to spend what would have been her honeymoon with the famous Rico di Carlo. Can Rico convince Sophie in one short week to stay forever? 

SONS OF THE WIND by Marie Laval 
Provence 1826. Ten years after her brother disappeared in the marshes of the Camargue, Venetia Rigby receives a letter suggesting he is alive. Will Philippe Dantès, half-gipsy master of Terres Mortes, help her find him when he has his own demons to fight? 

CURATING LOVE by Cara Marsi 
A letter inviting Chloe Decker to curate the art collection of the wealthy DiMarco family of Ravello, Italy, lets Chloe begin to picture a new beginning for herself after a tragic loss. But she hadn’t included her employer’s sexy grandson, Matteo DiMarco, in that portrait. Chloe’s not ready for a relationship, even with a fine Italian masterpiece of a man like Matteo, but can he convince her to paint a new life that includes him? 

PLAIN HARRY by Lindsay Townsend 
Recovering from a brutal marriage, Esther is living quietly as a widow when a letter from her brother Sir Stephen destroys her contented life by ordering her to marry Sir Henry—but who is this “Plain Harry” and how will he treat her? Set in medieval England when women had few rights, this story shows how love can flourish between the unlikeliest of people. 

THE MINSTREL BOY by Jenny Twist 
In 1936 a band of students went off to Spain to fight in the Spanish Civil War. Only one came home

Doppelganger - Re-release

This is a re-release of a story that was initially published by Melange Books. It also appeared in the following anthologies: Curious Hearts and Bedtime Shadows. So don't buy it if you've already bought those. Otherwise get it here: myBook.to/Dop

When Christine wakes up in a sumptuous white room with silken hangings, she assumes she is in heaven. But she soon finds out that this is not heaven but some strange alternative version of her life. Who is the Christine who inhabits this other world? And how is she ever to get home?

 They say there are angels who walk the Earth.”

The story is beautiful, heartbreaking, and haunting.”

“I truly believe that if you buy just one book this year, it should be this one! One of the most beautiful novels I have ever read.”

Domingo’s Angel has an overall rating of 4.8 stars on Amazon.

 The audio version is narrated by Gary Furlong, a professional actor with a beautiful reading voice. His rendition made me cry when I thought I had read the story so often it could no longer move me.

NEW RELEASE 16th December
An Open Letter to Stephen King and Other Essays

A collection of popular essays, magazine articles and blogs about life, the universe and everything.

This is my first non-fiction publication and is something of an experiment. I'm releasing it just as an e book to start with, but if it's well-received I'll also put it out as a print book.

The essays deal with Spain, women's issues, writing and just general snippets, including some autobiographical anecdotes. Well, you wanted to know about the escapology, didn’t you?
