A Season at Sanditon coming
22nd October 2022

Kindle pre-order now available

I am so glad that I finished this book, although it was a bumpy ride at times (especially during the pandemic). I have really come to love the characters in Sanditon and there are some real cracking minor characters. Paperback will be available to pre-order closer to publication date but in the meantime, if Kindle is your thing, you can pre-order on any Amazon site.



Work in Progress 2021/2022

Witnessing thirteen year old Íde Frawley slapped in public by her father, Alice Purcell secretly orchestrates for her to be hired & reside at her home – Woodcroft House. This unleashes a series of events that changes the course of both girls' lives forever.

And for lovers of Jane Austen, I hope to complete 'Sanditon' this year also. Better keep going!
