Not Just a Pretty Face #VoB #vampire #hunter

This year I intend to finish writing my Redcliffe novels series and turn my attention to the vampire hunter novels that have been lurking on my hard-drive for a couple of years. These novels are pure urban fantasy with some contemporary English Gothic thrown in for good measure. They are violent, erotic, passionate and not for those of a nervous disposition. Dare you read them?


You might like to start with my debut Urban Fantasy novel, Vampire of Blackpool. The vampire, the witch and the hunter battle it out in a contemporary Gothic adventure in Northern England. Who wins the battle? I think we know the answer to that one, but you might be surprised… Boo!

Indulging my Inner Vamp

I have been making lots of new friends across social media recently, and they have reminded my about why I write vampire stories. I have always felt deeply passionate and intrigued about the culture and folklore of vampires, and yes, there is a sexual element to that. I feel the need to express those dark and dangerous thoughts that lurk beneath my innocent exterior, and vampires and werewolves provide the perfect platform to vent my frustrations.

One of my earlier vampire novels is in desperate need of a little love… It is called The Darkness of Love, and came about purely as a spin-off from the Redcliffe novels series. I introduced a vampire named Marcus Scott, and he was supposed to be a supporting character. He proved rather too confident and forceful, however, and he tormented my dreams until I wrote his story. The Darkness of Love is set in Victorian England, and tells the story about how Marcus Scott became a vampire. There is sex, blood and violence. You have been warned… and titillated!

Upcoming Events: Book Lovers in Southport (BLISS)

It may seem like ages away, but on Sunday 14th July this year I will attend the Book Lovers in Southport signing event.

What Shall I Do in 2018?

Each year I find myself setting out targets and plans designed to help move my business forward and set me on course to be rich and famous. Each year it doesn’t quite work out the way I expect. We have family dramas. We have domestic interference. We have relationships, children, extended family and friends to care for. And my business plans get pushed further back, and I find myself desperately grabbing a couple of hours here and there to do a bit of networking and set up some blog posts.



I have decided not to set myself any strict targets or requirements in 2018. Our house is currently up for sale, and I hope that the first half of the year will involve completion of a sale and subsequent move. I will have to project manage the whole thing since it was my idea in the first place (my poor husband!), and so I do not need any further complications or demands on my time. Suffice to say that for now I plan to finish the books I am currently writing, publish the final two books in the Redcliffe novels series, and just take each day as it comes. What are your business plans for 2018? Or are you taking a break?

My Book Club Reading in 2018

Although I haven’t officially made a New Year’s resolution (except perhaps to sell our house and move ASAP), I have decided that in 2018 I need to read more books. Seriously, I have slacked off a lot during the past twelve months or so. It turns out I was so busy writing, editing, preparing new material, and doing domestic support work, that I neglected the books in my TBR pile. In fact, I even packed up a lot of books into boxes as an attempt to declutter our house while I try to sell it. I will not look at them again until we move…


But I still have my book club, and our first book of the year is The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck. I am really enjoying it, actually! I am not far into it at the moment, but I like what I have seen so far, and I am eager to continue. Instead I must clean house before our first viewers of the year arrive. Exciting times!

Happy New Year! #2018 #books

Happy New Year, my friends! The past month or so has been a whirlwind of family drama and busy festive activity. I will be very glad to return to work in the new year, and I am itching to get back to some proper writing. My plans for 2018 include releasing book 5 in the Redcliffe Novels series, and continuing work on my vampire hunter collection set in the North of England.
