I am an avid reader whose love of stories and daydreaming couldn't help but spill over into writing. I read almost every genre, but have a special love of fantasy and science fiction. My debut novel, The Secret Dead, was published on 11 April 2014.

New Vivia book out now

The third book in the Vivia series is actually out now. Woop. Woop. And only seven years after the last one! 😏 Errr....I still beat George R.R. Martin?
To those of you who liked my page seven years ago and have now forgotten why, apologies it took so long.
Book links as below. It's only out on Kindle for now, but I'm proofing the paperback this week so that'll be on its way too
