Recently I was interviewed by Anna Britton about my approach to writing, how I produce a first draft, how I moved from women’s fiction to murder mystery and more. The interview is now on YouTube here.
“As Juliet’s father lies dying, he issues her with a warning. There is a killer on the loose, and they may be closer than she can ever imagine.”

On Sunday 28 March I took part in a live broadcast for the Reading Between The Lines Book Festival with fellow writer Diane Saxon. It is available to view here.
Thia is a book I thoroughly enjoyed recently by one of my favourite authors. The pacing is perfect, with twists and turns all the way through. It combines brilliant plotting with complex, well-developed characters.
Stella is a wonderful protagonist: strong, determined, independent, and yet vulnerable. I loved the way she used her work as a dog behaviorist (fascinating in itself) to analyze and handle people.
A great read, highly recommended.
My next novel, The Island, is now with the editors before publication in June 2021 by Boldwood Books. It is available for pre-order on Amazon here
Like The House Party it is set on the Isle of Wight, and it starts with a suspicious death.
Keep an eye here and on my Amazon page for more news.
Free to be Tegan has a wonderful new cover! It is designed by Peter O’Connor of Bespoke Book Covers, and I think it is the best yet. My debut novel has been through two self-designed covers and one previous professional version, but with cover styles changing all the time it was right to have a refresh. The paperback features on the spine the beautful Welsh poppy painted for the original cover by my sister, Janet Nicholson.
My latest novel is published on Tuesday 21 July by Boldwood Books. It is at amazon (click on the cover above!), kobo, barnes & noble, google books, etc, as a kindle book, ebook and paperback. You can also pre-order the audiobook narrated by Karen Cass, but that will not be published until a few days after the other versions.
I hope you will enjoy the new book. It is a little different from my previous novels. It starts with a mysterious death, which the central character, Beth, finds herself investigating alone. The setting is the Isle of Wight. There have been lots of positive pre-publication reviews such as “Truly a great puzzler with a superb ending! I HIGHLY Recommend!!!” You’ll find lots of quotes on the various sales sites and you can “look inside” the book on some of them (on amazon you can look inside the pareback, but not the kindle).
See my blog on the Boldwood site today here, and look out for the “cover reveal” for The House Party tomorrow!
I am thrilled to announce that my next novel, The House Party, will be published by Boldwood Books in August 2020. The plan is for it to be published simultaneously as an ebook, paperback and audiobook in all the English-speaking jurisdictions on the same day. It’s with the copy editor at the moment, and I hope to be posting a cover reveal before too long.
