My next novel is nearly ready to be unveiled. Behind The Smile is set on the Isle of Wight and will be published in spring 2018. As soon as the cover is ready I will reveal it here. In the meantime, here’s a picture of the ancient Longstone at Mottistone, which is an important location in the story.2017-04-20 14.22.06

Phoebe Morgan: The Doll House

Great read

Earlier in the year I was lucky enough to have the editor Phoebe Morgan critique the synopsis and opening chapters of my new novel “Behind the Smile”. Her comments were extremely insightful and encouraging. Little did I realise that she was about to publish her debut novel “The Doll House”, a gripping psychological thriller. It has been phenomenally successful and quickly reached best seller rank on Amazon. I gave it 5 stars and this is my review: “Excellent debut novel by Phoebe Morgan. Gripping, lots of twists and turns that work very well. Highly recommend. Read in one day.”
