This is me with some hunky fire fighters from Red Watch, Southsea, reading my Marine Mystery thriller called In Cold Daylight, which is dedicated to fire fighters. My husband, Bob, was a fire fighter on Red Watch until two years ago when he had to retire because of a knee injury.
About my books
My first two crime novels were published in February 2006 after almost eighteen years of writing fiction.

Adam soon finds himself caught up in a mysterious and dangerous web of deceit. He begins to unravel a secret that has lain dormant for years and one that someone doesn't want exposed. Danger and death beckon, but for Adam there is no turning back. He has to get to the truth even if it costs his life.
Tide of Death is a detective novel set in Portsmouth and introduces the hunky DI Andy Horton. Andy Horton is fit, thirty-eight and estranged from his wife, Catherine.
