This is a page i’m delighted to have added to my website as it means my latest publication is no longer a secret. In contrast to my previous writings I have been secretly typing away and my first adult fiction novel was published in September 2019.

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 give hope and inspiration to anyone finding themselves in the same situation as Kate.

Described as “moving and sensitive” A Life of Their Own is a story of love, family, power and control.

Follow Kate’s journey, both physically and emotionally, as she flees an abusive marriage in New York with her two young children.

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.
