My romantic novel Escape To The Country is on special offer at 99p this week. I’m hoping that a boost in sales, and maybe another nice review, will give me extra motivation for my current novel in progress, which is also set on a farm.
Read the reviews here.
Leah is accused of a crime she didn’t commit. Dumped by Adam, the man she planned to marry, she escapes to Aunt Jayne’s smallholding in the Kent village of Winkleigh Marsh. Heartbroken and homeless, she strives to clear her name and deal with her emotions.
Jayne treats Leah’s unhappiness with herbal remedies, cowslip wine and common sense in equal measure. In return Leah works hard for the delicious home-cooked meals they share. She wrestles with sheep, breaks nails and gets stuck in the mud – learning as much about herself as she does about farming. Soon Leah is happy milking cows, mucking out pigs and falling halfway in love with Duncan, a dishy tractor driver.
Back in London, steps are being taken to investigate what’s happened to the missing money. It looks as though the real embezzler must soon be unmasked and Leah will have to choose between resuming her old life or starting a new one.
That’s when her problems really start.
Escape To The Country is available in ebook and paperback forms. It can be read free if you have Kindle unlimited (along with all my other books) and is available from some libraries.

I’m giving a short talk and reading some of my stories at the library in Lee-on-the-Solent on 6th June. If you’re in the area and free then, maybe I’ll see you there?
Yes, I do mean edition and not addition. The only new people I’ve brought into the world are story characters. I don’t know how many I’ve created but it’s definitely more than a thousand as I’ve written more stories than that and each of them has at least one character.
Family Feeling is my latest book release and it’s currently reduced to
My name is on the front cover of The People’s Friend this week! That’s the first time I’ve ever been mentioned on the cover of any magazine (my stories have featured on some fiction specials, but never me personally.)
The story which has been retitled Fairy Grotto, was inspired by a visit to the Waterwheel Inn near St Austell. It’s a lovely place to
My short story Room To Grow is in the current (May 4th) issue of The People’s Friend. It’s one of my rare historical pieces – or maybe I mean
