I am terrified and excited in equal measures as today’s the day that my next novel, TICK TOCK, is unleashed to the world. I must admit, it’s been getting some fantastic reviews and I can’t wait to see what you think. 


In the city of Stoke, a teenage girl is murdered in the middle of the day, her lifeless body abandoned in a field behind her school.


Two days later, a young mother is abducted. She’s discovered strangled and dumped in a local park.


DS Grace Allendale and her team are brought in to investigate, but with a bold killer, no leads and nothing to connect the victims, the case seems hopeless. It’s only when a third woman is targeted that a sinister pattern emerges. A dangerous mind is behind these attacks, and Grace realises that the clock is ticking…

Can they catch the killer before another young woman dies?

The #1 bestseller returns with a breathtaking thriller that will have you on the edge of your seat. Perfect for fans of Martina Cole and Kimberley Chambers.

I’d like to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to all my readers who made this working-class writer’s dreams come true. For as long as I can remember, I’ve wanted to write and to do it for a living is just amazing. Thank you to anyone who reviewed, shared news of my book, word of mouth is so important.
