About this author

I'm a native Brit currently living in San Diego. San Francisco is one of my favorite places and the setting for most of my mystery/thrillers. It's diverse, exciting, and easy for a killer to move around!

NEWEST RELEASE: THE BLACKEST NIGHT: a paranormal mystery set in San Francisco and the 3rd in the Jackson series. When a wrongful conviction is overturned and an innocent man is set free, he believes his darkest days are behind him, until the night he is attacked in an alleyway.

STONE COLD: a psychological thriller. The mysterious deaths of three high-flying corporate executives stun the Oxfordshire community.
(Stone Cold is set in the beautiful English Cotswolds).
