Storm clouds are gathering, silently and slowly, too far away to worry about. Or so it seems. But ignoring what is brewing will have dire consequences for the people caught up in the maelstrom.


Shirley Burton is too busy cheating on her husband, having a laugh and looking for fun to alleviate the boredom of her childless marriage. Kathleen Mitchell is too wrapped up in running around after her beautiful family to worry about her health. Anne Simpson has two things on her mind: her forthcoming marriage to Paul Betham, who seems to want to control her, and her career, which she does not want to give up.


Can Shirley really expect to deceive her husband and get away with it? Can Kathleen hold it all together, and is Anne able to have the best of everything?


Storm Clouds Gathering is a story of human emotion, passion and heart-rending grief. Set against the backdrop of the mid-sixties, these three families will be tested to the limit as betrayal, loss and love threaten to change their lives forever.




Winning the lottery was just the beginning for Doreen Wilkinson, nothing prepared Doreen and her seventeen year old daughter for their holiday at the luxury Villas Bonitas and nothing prepared Villas Bonitas for the Wilkinsons.


Sometimes It a cast of characters, all have secrets and as Doreen and her daughter mingle with the rich, they find that deception, love, lies and laughter turns their holiday into one they will never forget.

When tragedy strikes the Leonard family instead of standing together as a united family they are instead bitterly divided. Jane Leonard’s gift, of less than a year earlier, of fifty percent of her house to her only son is now the cause of her imminent homelessness. The home she had not only lived in for five decades, but had conceived and brought her two children into the world and watched them grow, is now the centre of a hostile sale. Magnolia House must now be sold and the proceeds divided.


Magnolia House is a beautiful story about families and how one tragedy can set in motion events that will change the lives of those involved in the selling and buying of Jane Leonard’s home. At times the reader will find humour and other times great emotion, but this book will leave the reader reaffirming their beliefs in kindness, friendship, family and hope.

Set in 1967, London, In the Cold Light of Day is an emotional story of Bertie and Kitty Costain, intelligent, mature and wealthy, who appear to have a perfect life, but their life is a lie and only one of them realises the deceit when it is all too late.


Addiction comes in many guises and when it takes hold even the addicted cannot see the destruction left in their wake or the pain that eventually squeezes the life out of everything.


As night turns into the cold light of day is love strong enough to cope and hold the tangled threads together to prevent the inevitable?




Celia Bryant-Smythe, beautiful and privileged could never have imagined that her one act would be the catalyst that would destroy so much and so many. But then Celia had no idea just how powerful and ruthless her father could be. Instead of expecting a happy union with the man she had fallen in love with, she was banished from Satchfield Hall, her lover sent to the war effort and her child swiftly dealt with. Her mother, Muriel, a gentle lady, terrified of her husband knew that she must somehow find the strength to stop him because if not more lives would be lost and destroyed. It was a huge undertaking, but she knew she must do it no matter what the price.


Satchfield Hall is a sweeping saga spanning several decades, readers join Satchfield Hall in 1943 and what will soon be described as The Situation, but it will be 1986 before the real situation ends. What is easily accepted in our society today was not only frowned upon years before, but was almost a crime. Satchfield Hall is an emotional book, a book that demonstrates how power can destroy and how love and family ties will eventually triumph.
