Profile Information

Lancashire, UK
About Me:
I've been writing for many years but, since moving to Lancashire, have "turned to crime". My first crime novel, INTO THE SHADOWS, was published by Constable & Robinson in May 2007. This was the first outing for forensic psychologist Jill Kennedy and DCI Max Trentham. This was followed by A DARKER SIDE (2008), WHERE PETALS FALL (2009) and THE BROKEN CIRCLE (2010). Jill & Max's fifth outing, SHADES OF EVIL, will be published in April 2011.
A new character, Dylan Scott had his first outing in PRESUMED DEAD (published 2010).
I Am A:
Books And Authors I Like:
Almost anything by James Patterson, Robert Barnard, Peter Lovesey, Stuart Pawson, Caroline Graham, Ann Cleeves, Ian Rankin, Ruth Rendall. Also like Sue Grafton's Kinsey Millhone books.
Movies And TV Shows I Like:
My favourite TV show was Jimmy McGovern's 'Cracker' with Robbie Coltraine playing Fitz. Also like 'Wire in the Blood', 'Silent Witness', 'A Touch of Frost', 'Morse', 'Dexter', 'Luther', etc.

Yay, it’s competition time. The third ‘Jill and Max’ outing, Where Petals Fall, will be published on 26th March in the UK and in May in the States and I’m giving all you lucky people a chance to win a beautiful hardback copy.

When two young boys find a woman's body in a quarry, Jill Kennedy and DCI Max Trentham experience a definite feeling of deja vu.

Five years earlier, four women were found murdered in exactly the…

The first of many. Maybe.

Every time I go to my own page here, I'm nagged reminded to make a blog entry. People who know me won't believe this but I struggle to think of things to put on my blog. However, I'll do my best.

For anyone who's interested, I have another blog - just personal ramblings really - over here. If you plan on visiting, now is probably the best time as I'm giving away one of my books.

As I moan a lot on my main blog,… Continue

Just finished "Where petals fall". Another fantastic outing for Jill and Max! I am submitting my review today to "Gumshoe Review". For some time I have had links to your site from mine. Thanks for another great read. I look forward to the next in the series.

Hi Shirley. No, I don't have any plans to write a book about the UK police. Perhaps I should since I've had several requests to do just that! :)

If you get the chance could you forward a book number or publishers name. The little store on the corner is haveing a problem adding you to my reading list.

Thanks Shirley, the dogs appreciate your praise! hehe. I'm glad you like the book covers. I an delighted with them. They're all done for me by a very talented graphics guy, (except the Dracula one), who's an absolute genius at transforming my stories into very vivid and evocative covers.

What lovely dogs, Shirley. Tilly looks great, and Muffet is a real character! Nice to see the pics to go with the names.

We share many favorite authors. I had the privilege of hearing Barnard at a con. What an interesting man!
Also love the Lancashire area, being from Michigan, where we have a few lakes of our own.

hehe, I like the 'cloth ears' name. Sounds like you have a lot of fun with your dogs, as do I. Tilly is sitting beside me right now as I write. Have you pics of your dogs you could post? I'm looking forward to the 7th of this month when my novelette 'Dracula Doesn't Live Here Anymore' is released by Eternal Press. I do these shorts in between my novels, just to keep my hand in at creating shorter fiction.

You have a Tilly too? What a coincidence. Ours are all rescue dogs, Tilly is the eldest at 3, then Dylan, 2 and Charlie, barely a year old. Tilly is my 'assistant', the most loyal of the lot and she never leaves my side while I'm writing, (or whatever). she always looks as scruffy as she does in the pic, no matter how much I brush her. She's a natural 'sruffbag' and all the more loveable for it! I like the name Muffet, it has a certain cuteness to it.

Thanks for adding me Shirley, good to know you. (And another Brit to boot).

As one of several folks who were kind enough to engage, I need to let you know that messages through crimespace are not getting through to me. So if you need, use
Thanks. Hope all is well.
