Stop! And breathe. #ThursdayThoughts #Books #booknews #booklovers #friends #FridayFeeling GOOD!

Life is frenetic nowadays. We know we should slow down occasionally and just breathe, but do we? Sometimes we need a wake up call. And so it was with me. I hadn’t realised whilst pushing myself on, blinking tiredly at my screen, why I was blinking so tiredly. Scarily, I had a sudden onset eye disease, which meant I couldn’t really see the screen. Emergency surgery fixed me, and it can be controlled, but … I am aware that if I’d left it … I’m sharing this because I’m also very aware of how many people kept right on supporting me even though I’d apparently fallen off the face of the earth. This is just to say a HUGE thank you. I’m back! Working hard, but pausing along the way. Those flowers keep calling.

So, enough with the troubles. We all have those, don’t we? The fabulous news is that my latest book is coming soon! DEADLY INTENT, Book 3 in the DI Matthew Adams thriller series, due to be published on September 5th, is currently on pre-order at just 99p! Sneaking a cheeky link in here:

Can you indulge me while I show off the video? The voiceover is awesome! Gritty, gravelly and scary (I’d have been hard-pushed to do that myself), it totally makes it. Definitely worth a listen.

Massive thanks to Alan Bainbridge at for your excellent, professional service – and also again to all those people who read and reviewed Books 1 & 2 in the DI Matthew Adams series (those reviews are pretty awesome too). I really do mean it when I say I could not have done this without you.

Please do feel free to browse my books on my ‘Books’ page or to contact me anytime! I’d love to hear from you.

Meanwhile, keep safe all!

Lots of love,

    Scary trailer – I had shivers up my spine when the voiceover started! Good luck with the book and remember to look after yourself. Hugs. Mx

      Now that’s spooky. I just posted a review for The Girl on the Beach! And then I flipped over to my comments and there you were. Loved the book, Morton. Harry keeps popping into my mind. 🙂 Immensely satisfying read. Thanks for your comments re my trailer! The voiceover is FAB, isn’t it? I can highly recommend Alan Bainbridge. xx
