Most of my other 11 books are stand alone so can be read as you find them. 4 of my books are linked: Upside Down Inside Out and the sequel Spin the Bottle (called Greetings from Somewhere Else in the USA); The Alphabet Sisters and the sequel Lola's Secret. Of all my books, I do have a soft spot for The Alphabet Sisters, my fourth novel. It is set in my home town of Clare in South Australia, and features one of my favourite characters, an elderly Irishwoman called Lola Quinlan. Happy reading, I hope you enjoy my other stories too and thank you again for getting in touch,

“She just waited. Rosie had no choice. She’d have to do it on her own. She’d do anything for Amy, even hear whatever she was about to hear, on her own. The consultant was in his office. It was as untidy as always. He didn’t smile. It wasn’t a bad sign. He”
Monica McInerney, The Christmas Gift

“Carnation, Lily, Lily, Rose by John Singer Sargent.”
Monica McInerney, The Godmothers

“Rosie stood up. ‘Is everything all right? Is Amy —’ ‘She’s fine, Rosie.’ They had long been on first-name terms. ‘But there’s been a change in today’s schedule. Can you come and see the consultant now?”
Monica McInerney, The Christmas Gift
