“Amazingly beautiful and powerful”

“Heart-wrenching and poignant”

“I have no words to tell you how beautifully this is written. You give the whole war new meaning for those who didn’t live through it. This story is epic.”

“Better tell readers to get that box of tissues out ready”

SYNOPSIS

Two women, two lives, divided by an ocean – and a secret hidden for 75 years.

London, 1939, Sylvia marries her sweetheart, Harry, in the days before he’s sent to war. It will be four, long years before she sees him again.

In 2019, Fiona McCloud is struggling to make ends meet in her small Iowa town but has big dreams of a more glamorous life. In private, the plus-size woman fantasizes about being Marilyn Monroe. In reality, she’s a part-time hairdresser and beautician at the Cedars Retirement Village.

Fiona’s favorite resident is 97 year-old Dolly. The world thinks Dolly is disgraceful, with her octogenarian lover and addiction to fast cars.

And then there’s Joe Fox, the sulky and sensual gardener, a Native American with flowing black hair and wary eyes.

When Dolly decides to take a road trip to Las Vegas, she persuades Fiona and Joe to come with her. They don’t know that Dolly has an ulterior motive, or that this journey will change their lives forever.

For as long as I can remember, I wanted to write. Perhaps it was growing up in a small village that was well known for its mystery and folklore, all of which sparked my imagination as a child.

I enjoy writing in several different genres and I’m inspired by the personal stories of those around me. It’s often from a simple discussion overheard in the train (‘Exposure’), in a café, or in the street, where ideas for characters or scenes come to me.

I fall in love with by characters and miss them desperately once I’d finished their stories. I love my carnie boys from the Traveling Series, my dancers from LUKA and SLAVE, my smokin’ hot Marine, SEBASTIAN. I love writing dialogue and always try to include touches of humor in the most poignant stories.

Whether you like thrillers, fantasy or adult romance novel, MM or FM, I hope you’ll enjoy the journey through my stories.

I’m also a great supporter of the military charity www.felixfund.org.uk and sales of SEMPER FI go to support them. The stage play LATER, AFTER and the novel duet TICKTOCK and BOMBSHELL was written to honour their work.
