A Life of Their Own

This is a page I’m delighted to be adding to my website as it means I have announced my latest publication. In contrast to my previous writing, I have been secretly typing away and have my first adult fiction novel out on 16th September. A Life of Their Own is a story I have been wanting to write for a few years. It couldn’t be further away from my picture book writing and for that reason I wanted my first novel to tackle a serious subject. Maybe even to give hope and inspiration to anyone finding themselves in the same situation as Kate.


When Kate and her children step onto a bus early one Tuesday morning, she knows this is their only chance: their only chance at freedom and at a life of their own. But, can she ensure their safety? Can she ensure they will never be found?

This is a feeling that haunts Kate as she and her children begin a new life far from New York, far from their troubled past.

But, little did she know that their new life would bring her closer to a different past, a life she had long given up, making her already fragile world more complicated than she could have ever imagined.


As always, once A Life of Their Own has hit the shelves, I will look forward to hearing your thoughts.

A Life of Their Own will be available worldwide in paperback and as an ebook from Waterstones, Barnes & Noble, Amazon, and all good book shops.
