Welcome to this world of fiction... And the path it took to get there. Indulge your senses, with the visions, tastes and smells that run through my mind as I write these novels, maybe you will join me within the pages.. “I write because I cannot resist using words. They are my friends and companions, sometimes my children, and they whisper to me and beg me to bring them alive. They murmur in my dreams, they haunt my imagination, and I cannot ignore their needs. For if almost every word has its own collection of melodies and mental images, then imagine putting two words together. Those meanings are not simply doubled, but quadrupled. So put together three, then four, then a thousand...

The Deception of Consequences, released soon

 

Richard Wolfdon, is one of the wealthiest men in England, and occasional adviser to King Henry VIII, yet he finds there is no challenge in his everyday life. He is utterly bored.

Jemima’s father died at sea, now she must give up her home and money to her vile cousin. But the discovery of three mummified bodies in the attic brings Richard Wolfdon into her life. He intends to delve deeper, and discover the identity of the victims, and more especially of the murderer.

Nothing however, is ever quite that simple. With a treasure hunt into the south of England, attacks from bandits and pirates, kidnapping and invasions, there is far more to face and one adventure chases another. Who is dead and who alive? Who is hero and who villain? And with the squabbles of one man’s six voluptuous mistresses to manage – or ignore – Richard wonders if tedium was the easiest option after all.

This book brings Henry VIII and his second unfortunate wife Anne Boleyn  into the plot, and with historical accuracy, defines the events that marked the end of Anne’s life. Surrounding these traumas is the fictional story of Richard Wolfdonn, Jemima Thripp and the convoluted adventure which brings them together with many twists and turns within the vivid excesses of Tudor England.

 

 

Apologies for my absence...

 

They say moving house is as fraught as divorce. Personally I am finding it far worse!

 

First came two and a half weeks of packing. Endless packing, sorting and chucking out the dispensable.

I have never thrown out so many of my possessions before but the moving house process demands sacrifice! Then came the move itself and that was comparatively painless with lots of family help. But this was followed immediately by even more chaos. Everything I needed was inevitably hidden away in a box somewhere. The effort involved to actually feel at home instead of being kidnapped and living in

some alien landscape is an ongoing one.

 

However, here I am. And a little over one month later I actually do feel comfortably at home and can return to the thrill of writing my books. It is, after all, within my head and the pages of the books I write,  that I do actually belong. That’s where I’m at home.

 

I have shockingly neglected my website, unable to gain access to either my computer or any internet service for quite a long time. Much too long. But now I am back in front of the screen once more and ready to return not only to writing, but to publishing as well.

 

I feel settled now. My new home is taking shape around me and I will be delighted to return to the computer in order to write, and transfer the dreams into my head onto the screen.
