It’s publication day for Trouble In Cornwall

1 Front Cover for Trouble In Corwall jpgMy latest book, TROUBLE IN CORNWALL, is a powerful erotic crime thriller. I’m thrilled the Kindle and paperback editions went live on Amazon today.

The dramatic events in Trouble In Cornwall take place six months after The Trouble With Trouble ends. DCI Cosgrove and Kate Pendleton, his sex-addicted liaison officer, find themselves in all kinds of bizarre and extreme situations when they are seconded to a Cornish police force to help find Jessie O’Sullivan’s kidnapped son. Jessie is Liam O’Sullivan’s wife from book 1, The Trouble With Liam. Kate catches the eye of Russell Bell, Jessie’s charismatic but deeply flawed Jamaican boyfriend. All hell breaks loose in this third book in the Trouble series.

Be warned. As with the first two books, Trouble In Cornwall, book 3 of the series, is not for the faint-hearted or easily shocked. I’ve written book 4, called Troubled, and hope to publish it in late 2020. It can be read as a standalone like all the other thrillers in the Trouble series. “Outrageous” adult content.

The Lying Scotsman Kindle front cover pdf-jpgThe Kindle of THE LYING SCOTSMAN is FREE on Amazon from the 27th-28th November. It’s book 2 in The Mug Trilogy of third-person memoirs. The words were triggered by Mug’s entanglement with … let’s call him Michael. Mug was a recently divorced woman in her late forties. Michael was a complex, enigmatic Scottish baggage handler eleven years her junior who was hiding shocking secrets from the world.

Mug began writing a truthful book about their unusual story planning to give it to Michael for Christmas. When she let him read the first few chapters, he threatened to drive off a cliff. Nevertheless, she continued writing her book. After eventually discovering the truth Michael had been hiding for years, it was Mug who wanted to die. The purpose of her book then changed. It became her attempt to make sense of the bizarre events unfolding as she wrote it, and to help her and Michael deal with the aftermath.

Afternoon tea with author Jacqueline Ward

I thoroughly enjoyed yesterday’s ‘Afternoon Tea with author Jacqueline Ward’ event. It was held in the perfect setting of Alexandra Park’s Conservatory in Oldham. Jacqueline gave a reading from her psychological thriller, Perfect Ten, then enthralled the audience with an informative talk about her career and the publishing industry. I’m looking forward to reading my signed copy of Perfect Ten.

It was lovely to meet Jacqueline for the first time and to reacquaint myself with Phaedra Patrick and Dan Forrester. (Thanks for the lift home, Phaedra. Much appreciated.)

The event was part of Oldham Library’s annual Bookmark Festival. A perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
