Hello and welcome to my website!
I love a good holiday read for the summer - something that transports me to an idyllic location where I can almost hear the seagulls cry, smell the mineral tang of the sea, watch the waves lapping the white sand of a deserted beach... Throw in a psychopath and some poor innocents in a life-or-death struggle and I'm happy!
The Lost Boy, my fifth stand-alone psychological thriller published by Inkubator Books, is my take on such a holiday read, now available on Amazon.
They expected a relaxing holiday. They got a trip to hell...

!!New book review!!
Lucy Lawrie's intriguing emotional rollercoaster, The Child in My House, is out now! I read a lot of women's crime, but this is my favourite for 2021 in this genre. If you enjoy page-turners about family secrets, this is definitely one for you. The child of the title, little Kitty, is so adorable that you will soon be rooting for Juliet, the nanny-with-a-secret, to keep her safe...
Having discovered early in my 'career' that I didn't have what it takes to be a scientist, I shuffled sideways into scientific and medical editing, which has the big advantage that I can do it while watching Bargain Hunt.
I now live in the north-east of Scotland, by coincidence just half a mile or so from the tiny hamlet in which my great-great-grandmother Jane Renshaw, the wife of a shoemaker, brought up her eight children and where she is buried under a lichen-covered headstone in the graveyard. I hope she would not mind my borrowing her name.
