The Hostile is a “refreshingly original” contemporary paranormal crime thriller. “A bizarrely captivating” read. It’s book one of The Hostile series and is available in Kindle, paperback, and audiobook editions. Each book in the series can be read as a standalone. Book two, Holiday for The Hostile, was published in December 2016. The third book in this unusual series, The Hostile Game, was published on Amazon in Kindle and paperback in April 2017. I’m currently writing book four, Confronting The Hostile.

I’ve always been fascinated by the unexplained and the paranormal, and also love to read fiction, particularly romance. I ran out of titles in this pseudo-genre, so decided my only choice was to start writing them myself.
Having lived a number of years in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in western North Carolina, I was struck by the magic in this place—some parts of that wilderness have remained untouched for hundreds of years. It was the perfect place to set a mysterious romance.
These three interlinked novellas are set in the early 2000s. In “Carmen’s Roses”, an Englishwoman encounters an unexplained death when she visits New Zealand in the hope of recovering from a serious illness, and of finding forgiveness for an incident related to a love affair from her past. In “Blue Moon for Bombers”, set in middle England, a historical mystery from the Second World War is interwoven with a modern romance. In “The Windflower Vibration”, which brings together some of the characters featured in the previous two books, the finding of a body on an Auckland beach sparks off a quest to unravel a complex web of events spanning two centuries and two hemispheres. All these novellas are available to be purchased separately as well as in this box set.

My own experience of a life divided between England and New Zealand, the practice of both orthodox and alternative medicine, and interests in animals, music and the paranormal.
