I write in the genre that’s been dubbed ‘domestic noir’ – domestic thrillers; family sagas with a dark edge; stories that keep you on the edge of your seat and make you think ‘what if that happened to me?’

 

 

The One That Got Away

Everyone has one: an ex you still think about. The one who makes you ask ‘what if’?

Fifteen years have passed since Stella and George last saw each other. But something makes Stella click ‘yes’ to the invite to her school reunion.

There’s still a spark between them, and although their relationship ended badly, they begin an affair.

But once someone gets you back, sometimes they’re never going to let you go again…

The Disappearance

Audrey Bailey will never forget the moment she met Ralph Templeton in the sweltering heat of a Bombay café. Her lonely life over, she was soon married with two small children. But things in the Templeton household were never quite what they seemed.

Now approaching 70, and increasingly a burden on the children she’s never felt close to, Audrey plans a once-in-a-lifetime cruise around the Greek isles, forcing grown-up twins Lexi and John along for the ride. The Templetons set sail as a party of three – but only two will return.

Just hours after Audrey breaks the news to the twins that they stand to inherit a fortune after her death, she goes missing. As the search of the ship widens, so does the list of suspects – and, with dark clues emerging about Audrey’s early life, the twins begin to question if they can even trust one another…

 

 

Coming Home

When Dubai-based expat Evie Stevens returns to the UK to support her mother after her father passes away, she unexpectedly unearths a secret her father had been holding close. Evie’s first instinct is to tell her mother what she’s learned but her mother, having suffered tragedy in the past, is vulnerable and Evie’s in two minds: would telling her push her over the edge once more?

Meantime, Evie digs deeper and discovers depths of deceit that ultimately changes the way she views both her parents, leaving her with the ultimate question: Can you ever really know your parents?
