It always makes me very proud to say things like this.

My writing mate Jules, a fellow student from the superb Julie Cohen workshops, is  hitting the heights on Amazon . Her latest book is at number four on the Kindle chart! The main Kindle chart! That is huge! Just a couple of places behind Lee Child’s new one from Jack Reacher, which I am devouring on audiobook at present. If you fancy a wonderful warming winter read with a festive theme, check out this one.


Tilly Hunter has fabulous friends, her dream job as a make-up artist with a prestigious opera company and Felix, her kind and caring husband to be. It looks set to be the most perfect Christmas yet!

But when a monumental blunder forces her to work closely with new IT director Marcus Walker, it's not only the roast chestnut stalls on the cobbles of her beloved Covent Garden that cause sparks to fly…

Super serious and brooding, Marcus hasn’t got a creative bone in his sharp-suited body. For technophobe Tilly, it's a match made in hell.

And yet, when Tilly discovers her fiancé isn’t at all what he seems, it's Marcus who's there for her with a hot chocolate and a surprisingly strong shoulder to cry on … He might just be the best Christmas present she’s ever had.

Everyone is raving about Covent Garden in the Snow

‘Had me laughing from the first page!’ Rachel’s Random Reads

TACOM was originally called 'Hawaiian Affair' when I self-published it in 2013, and as such it received over 100 five star reviews. 

" You know what they say about mixing business with pleasure … 
When the breakdown of her marriage leaves Sadie Turner a single mum, she vows that she will make it on her own. After all, why would a smart businesswoman with a PhD and the prospect of a life-changing deal on the horizon need a man? 

But Sadie’s man-ban is tested to the limit when she travels to Monaco to meet her potential investor. There she encounters Mac, a rough and ready playboy billionaire who lives life in the fast lane – and that’s when the real adventure starts! 

But Sadie’s heart isn’t the only thing on the line. There’s also the business she’s worked so hard to make a success; the business that could so easily slip out of her grasp if she doesn’t seal the deal within thirty days … 

Published under Hot Choc Lit - slightly raised heat level but not erotica! 
Previously self-published as Hawaiian Affair. Revised and edited by Choc Lit March 2015


Hawaiian Escape

This is the prequel to Take a Chance on Me, but can be read first. 

go here to get Hawaiian Escape on Amazon, in eBook or paperback, steamy version or PG version, the first in the Hawaiian Trilogy, originally published as the prequel


"Exciting romantic comedy with intrigue, mystery and a twist in the tale, Hawaiian Escape is a humorous romance with a dash of drama - from the rolling Surrey hills to bustling New York, to an ancient ruin in Tuscany. 

Feisty singleton and former international jet-setter Helen Parker’s life is in crisis, and so is her sister Sadie’s. Now Helen has to learn to manifest her own destiny instead of fixing everyone else’s. 
Rookie businesswoman Sadie Turner needs help – but is marketing whizz Damian Hugh her knight in shining armour or her nemesis? 
With time running out for Sadie, Helen faces the biggest choice of her life so far – to find an escape that could solve everything for one of them – or ruin it all for both. New man, new career, new era. But for whom?"



Hawaiian Retreat

This is the conclusion to Helen's story, and should be read after the other two - whatever order you read the other two in, read this one last!

Go here to get Hawaiian Retreat on Amazon - eBook or paperback

" A disastrous break-up kicks off a year of self-discovery for internationally renowned columnist Helen Parker, as she travels the world in search of ever more exciting thrills. But when her deepest secrets suddenly catch up with her, how long can Helen stay on course to win the ground-breaking Try it For The First Time Club challenge? As romance blooms, Italian passion meets tantric sensuality in a luxurious retreat deep in the Himalayas – but how long for, when a mystery man appears. Will he turn out to be the key to her future or a ghost from her past? With everything resting on the nail-biting grand finale in Hawaii, will her secret stay hidden, or will she risk losing her column, her identity – and her man – forever?  "
