Of the many hundreds of thousands of words that I have written, these are the titles that are currently available.
The Most Beloved Boy
In Victorian England, David Waltham, son of a country squire, and Dan Smith, a poor, social outcast, make unlikely friends, but their loyalty and commitment to each other has created a bond that is unbreakable, despite all the prejudice and misfortune that would drive them apart. After ten years at sea, their friendship is tested to the limits when the folk of their home town learn the real reason for their unexpected return.
After the Rain
Amidst the celebrations at the end of the First World War, a young woman called Marianne meets the wealthy Robert Westwood and soon agrees to marry him. However, a year and a half later, she leaves her grand life behind to live in solitude at his country house in Devon. While she looks for answers to her problems in the beautiful but neglected garden, she discovers another lost soul seeking sanctuary in the garden; poppies that grew in the mud of the trenches also grow in the peace and tranquility of the garden.
No Such Cold Thing
In 1902, a young American girl called Kitty Grant goes to live with her English family on the estate that she will one day inherit, but she soon realises that her new life in England is not what she had hoped for. Can her spirit and exuberance for life turn around a decaying family? This children’s novel will appeal to bright readers, combining the themes of legacy, love and poetry in a thought-provoking story.
