!!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...
Hello and welcome to my website!
Yes, I'll admit it - I do sometimes watch Escape to the Country (although I already live away from it all in a small rural community). I often wonder what happens when the people escaping city life move into their dream rural idyll. It's to be hoped that not many of them have the sort of horrendous experiences I inflict on the family in No Place Like Home, my new psychological thriller published by Inkubator Books and now available on Amazon. The Hendriksen family just want a simple life, but what they get is simply terrifying... This is my third standalone psychological thriller published by the wonderful team at Inkubator Books.
On this website you will find information about currently available books and stories and future releases. There is a question and answer page, and a contact form via which you can get in touch if you like and/or be added to my mailing list to be the first to hear about new releases and offers. I have also included some links to other writers' books and blogs that I love.
Thank you for visiting!
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.
