Shirley Wells Thanks so much for that, Stuart. Libraries in the UK are, um, struggling a bit too.
I'll be giving away a copy of Presumed Dead on my blog - details will appear Monday or Tuesday - if you're interested...
All the best,

Stuart Thank you Shirley. Our library is well...pretty hopeless. I checked for 'Into The Shadows', and it is currently out of stock. I will definitely buy a copy once it is available again.

I will download an ebook later this month of 'Presumed Dead'.

Thanks again, Stuart :)

Shirley Wells Goodness, you're the 3rd person to ask me that today. Um, I write a mystery series featuring a female forensic psychologist and a male DCI. The first in that series is INTO THE SHADOWS. I've just started a new series featuring a male PI (all set in Lancashire, UK) which will be out in e-format on 26th of this month, PRESUMED DEAD.
If you'd really like to try one, I'd suggest looking in your library for INTO THE SHADOWS.
Shirley :)

Stuart Hi Shirley,

Wow! You have many titles to choose from, I am spoilt for choice. Which would you recommend I read first?

Looking forward to your reply.

Stuart :)

Shirley Wells Hi Stuart.

Thanks for the friendship.

The next time I'm reading non-fiction, I may have to try Beyond my Control. It sounds interesting - and frightening!

All the best to you too from a dull, grey, wet UK. (And it's supposed to be summer...:))


Stuart Hi Shirley,

Delighted to be friends on GoodReads.

All the best from not so sunny, Australia :)
