WORTH the WAIT?
Ever get the feeling that your life is passing before your eyes?
These past twleve months, that's exactly how I've felt. There's been several visits to the hospital with poorly parents, the selling of property and all that entails, a holiday and, best of all, the birth of our first grandson, Leo, over in Australia. Everything that's happened has been memorable and brought about many tears, the bad kind and the good, and meant that actually typing up pages and pages of notes and arranging publication has been impossible until recently.
My new book, completed months ago, will be published mid November, and I could not be more thrilled to share it with you!
TDC a standalone novel. It's not a romance. It is psychological suspense with a complex love story woven through it. You can expect lots of angst, emotional scenes and edge of your seat suspense as a single father and a troubled young woman confront their deepest, darkest fears together.
If you've read The Story of Us series, you'll remember Dan Rizler - the warped sociopath exhibiting an unhealthy obsession with Beth Parker-Stone - and realise that creating dark and dangerous characters is nothing new for me. Having said that, living inside the head of my handsome leading man when he's confronted by such a manipulative character, has proven to be both challenging and enjoyable.
As keen readers, you'll love the psychological aspects; piecing together clues, deciding who to trust and how to protect yourself and those you love from a fate worse than death. Don't get me started on the twists and turns...
I've been proud and privileged to share all my books with discerning readers like you, and this novel, while it is a departure from romance suspense, is a story which, I hope you agree, deserves to be read and talked about. Any book that deals with domestic violence, single parenting, the loss of a loved one, learning to love again and revenge must be a riveting read, right?
Those of you who have got to know me over the years, know that I write from the heart, I know no other way. My characters are flawed, even damaged; often vulnerable and seldom without regret, but aren't we all? Aren't those the traits which make us human, and breathe life into the characters we love?
Please check out TDC when it's published, I hope you'll read, review and agree that it IS worth the wait.
