His wife Jo is left wondering what could have happened and more importantly why. Countless scenarios begin to haunt her in the tortuous months that follow his disappearance. Clues suggest one thing while her heart tells her something else and all the while, life moves on so fast that she is held hostage by her own emotions.(less)

As I continued on my run, I could imagine a ghostly impression of myself still sitting there all those years ago…

When I arrived back home huffing and puffing, I was still thinking about that bench only now I was imagining what would happen if two strangers sat down and began talking, what if they shared the same kind of problems and sparked up a friendship. That simple premise was the catalyst for a whole host of other 'what ifs' and that's when I knew I had a story I had to write.

It’s three months since the publication of The Child’s Secret and I’d like to say a big thank you to everyone who bought a copy because it did amazingly well, reaching Number 14 in the UK Book Charts which is my highest position in the charts so far. I can’t tell you how thrilling it was but I’m already turning my attention to my next book which is due to be released on in August this year. I s...
