News Update January 2020

Another year, another website refresh. This time to let you know that, following the publication of Can You See Me? at the beginning of last year (huge thanks to all of you who read and posted such wonderful reviews, by the way!), my second psychological thriller with Thomas and Mercer is out on 21/1/21. Entitled False Hope, it’s another mystery about traumatic events in the past that are about to cause all kinds of havoc in the present, when my orthopaedic surgeon protagonist, Grace, has someone she recognises turn up on her operating table. Someone she hoped she was never going to see again.

In other news, when I really should be writing another novel, I’ve agreed to start the year in a most unlikely way, by teaching my annual Cardiff Uni novel writing workshop online – which I don’t need to tell you comes with a major bonus; you don’t need to be able to get to Cardiff to do it. Or, indeed, go anywhere at all. You just need to be free from 10 till noon on Wednesday mornings, and prepared for a degree of tutor-ineptitude. Hurry up though – it begins on Weds Jan 13th, and enrolment info can be found here.


If you can’t get to a class, wither virtually or actually, you might also be interested to know that the book versions of  my creative writing courses, Novel and Telling Tales, have both had a bit of an update and facelift. They are concise step by step guides that should help you on your way, if one of your goals is to get to grips with your writing this year.


Anyway, welcome to my website – the place where you can find answers to all those me-related questions that you probably never even realised you wanted answers to. Be it about my ghostwriting, my novels, or my teaching, it’s all here, and, as is becoming something of a tradition now, never knowingly more than a year out of date.
