I have always written stories, but it wasn't until I started the first book in the Solis Invicti series in 2014 that I really became obsessed with writing. I love to read, particularly where the escapism of the story is enhanced with an element of fantasy or science fiction. For me, writing is simply an extension of that journey, but I get to decide what happens next (though it's amazing how often the characters seem to decide for themselves what I'm going to write!).

I love to hear from readers, so please do get in touch through my website or via Twitter.

Thank you for reading!

Bound in Silver is the penultimate book in my paranormal romance quadrilogy. It's set in post-apocalyptic London and follows a young woman trying to navigate her way through a new and dangerous world in which a vampiric race called the Silver have taken charge to protect the remaining humans from a zombie-inducing infection. I won't give away any spoilers, but suffice it to say that there's plenty of action, drama and romance along the way.
The other project is something a bit new for me. It's a little less fast-paced and more contemplative. It's perhaps more akin to a compilation of short stories than it is to a conventional novel, ranging across every genre you can think of, all bundled up in a Sci-Fi wrapper. I'm pretty excited about it, but it's taking a back seat until May, by which point Bound in Silver will be published and off my desk.(less)

Blood Types: Categorising Vampires

I've been thinking about vampires recently (surprise, surprise). In particular, I've been thinking about the different kinds of vampire and how they manifest in fiction. (NB: scary vampire pictures follow, so look away now if you're squeamish!)

As I see it, vampires can easily be divided into two camps: (1) the powerful yet sexy ones and (2) the uncontrolled, animalistic ones. Since I started watc

DNF halfway through. I found the rigidity of this routine approach offputting and unhelpful.

A really engaging and escapist YA read. Some of the twists felt a little forced to me but I enjoyed the characters and the puzzles a lot.

DNF at about 10%. The tone was offputtingly absolutist for me - there was no leeway for those suffering from nipple trauma etc. Not for me.

Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“Exhaling heavily, I sank back down into the sofa and picked up the book again. When I'd read the same sentence five times, I decided I wasn't going to be able to lose myself in the story and returned it regretfully to the pile of books on the coffee table.”
Josie Jaffrey, A Bargain in Silver

“I guess you can never really know someone, even, perhaps especially, when you're in love.”
Josie Jaffrey, A Bargain in Silver

“Strange how much damage we can cause without even trying,”
Josie Jaffrey, Bound in Silver
