I design a mean book cover and have been lucky to have designed for many Authors. If you want one then please message me or email rdm_author@outlook.com - my costs are affordable for original, copyrighted exclusive designs made to your vision.

I love to write, anything, anytime, anywhere.
My stories will usually hold an unexpected plot twist.
My aim is to try out all genres so whatever you like to read I have probably written one.....or have a work in progress coming soon.
Feel free to ask me anything you like about my books or writing.

When not writing you can find me at the beach waiting for my French Lieutenant or walking on the moors in my muddy boots looking for Heathcliffe living my life in romance and adventure. Always X

My recent work, Book 1 almost done now, has taken much longer as it has a more complicated plot and I am working on layering my characters. My first books are good but now I know I can imrove on this. Consequently some of the beta characters in my latest effort have now taken over and want a book of their own!
I also realised that what is called gripping about my previous books could, in some stories be too brutal and therefore I am experimenting with more descriptive, in the right places, of course.(less)

I was Carl Dawson, serial killer and I had to detach my personal beliefs, morals and tastes in order to portray him as nasty as he was at times. I also felt his pain when he struggled with the dual aspects of his personality. I do a lot of acting and it is the same there. You cannot portray someone evil if you bring your own goodness into the performance. Mine can be a brutal way of delivering but it will always be emotive. If I suffer a little pain on the journey back to my reality then I feel that I have given the reader good value for their money and a true escape into fiction.
In the romances I am always the beautiful heroine in my own mind and yes, I thoroughly enjoy those moments. In short I write what I want to read and sometimes try to fill in the gaps that other books have left out for me as a reader. I hope this answers your question and well done for coming up with one that made me think hard about the answer.(less)
