We should all support our local libraries, for once they are gone due to lack of funding, it'll be hard to get them back again.

Kitty McKenzie in Portuguese!

Happy news to share that my historical trilogy, Kitty McKenzie series, is going to be published in Portuguese next year!

Book one, Kitty McKenzie is out in Feb 2020.
1864 - Suddenly left as the head of the family, Kitty McKenzie must find her inner strength to keep her family together against the odds. Evicted from their resplendent home in the fashionable part of York after her parents’ deaths, Kitty must fight the legacy of bankruptcy and homelessness to secure a home for her and her siblings. Through sheer willpower and determination she grabs opportunities with both hands from working on a clothes and rag stall in the market to creating a teashop for the wealthy. Her road to happiness is fraught with obstacles of hardship and despair, but she refuses to let her dream of a better life for her family die. She soon learns that love and loyalty brings its own reward.

1864 -
De repente, Kitty McKenzie é deixada como chefe da família e deverá encontrar sua força interior para mantê-la unida contra todas as probabilidades.
Despejada, após a morte de seus pais, de sua resplandecente residência na parte elegante de York, Kitty precisará combater o legado da falência e da falta de moradia para garantir um lar para ela e seus irmãos.
Com determinação e pura força de vontade, ela se agarra às oportunidades, desde trabalhar com roupas e barracas no mercado até abrir uma loja de chá para os ricos.
Seu caminho para a felicidade é repleto de obstáculos, dificuldades e desespero, mas se recusa a deixar morrer seu sonho de uma vida melhor para sua família.
Ela logo descobre que amor e lealdade trazem sua própria recompensa.

Long Distance Love in audio!

Even though I'm primarily a historical author, I have written a few contemporary novels, the first book I ever had published in 2005 (feels like a hundred years ago now) was a modern book, Long Distance Love. Anyway this book has just been released in audio, which makes me very happy.

Millie - new release!

The Marsh Saga Series! 
Set in the 1920s, this 4 book series is about three sisters, Millie, Prue, Cece Marsh and Prue's friend, Alice. WWI is over and the sisters are ready to spread their wings and embrace a new world.

Millie, sensible and ready to be a wife and mother, but nothing goes to plan.
Prue, wild and eager to explore the world as her grandmother did, but will it fulfil her as she hopes?
Cece, falls in love with a man who loves her sister. Will she get her happy ever after?
Widowed Alice is a modern woman in a man's world and is determined to make her business as good as any man's.
These strong independent women will face challenges and heartache, and alone they might tumble and fall. However, together, they are a force to be reckoned with! 

The first book is Millie.

Millie blurb

The Great War is over, and Millie is ready to leave her loving family home and be a wife to Jeremy who is everything she had hoped for.
Not long after their wedding, Millie discovers Jeremy is affected by shell shock and moving into his late father’s cold dark estate escalates the problem. Millie tries to help, but Jeremy grows more distant and befriends a homeless, wounded ex-soldier, Monty, who has secrets...
As Millie’s distrust of Monty grows, a rift is created between her and Jeremy and when he leaves to receive hospital treatment, she is left feeling abandoned. When her family is dealt a terrible loss, it is Millie who must be the strongest. However, just when she feels things couldn’t become worse, she suffers her own heartbreaking tragedy.
Grieving and alone, Millie wonders if her marriage can ever be mended, but she can’t give up without a fight.
Will a new home for her and Jeremy in a foreign country be the answer, or will the events of the past destroy everything she wished for? 

Available in Kindle and paperback: Amazon:
