Cover Reveal for One More Tomorrow!

I am so excited to finally share this with you. Cover design is, for me, one of the most challenging aspects of creating a book. You have to convey so much within a carefully chosen image and a couple of words, enough to show the reader what’s in store for them if they pick it up.

With One More Tomorrow, I wanted the tag-line to elude to the depths of emotion within this story of love, loss, and heartache. I wanted the reader to know, just by those few words how much my lead character Roxy wants to be a mother, how intensely she is prepared to fight for her dream.

As much as we are told never to judge a book by its cover, the truth is, that is exactly what we do.

So, here goes:


What do you think?

One More Tomorrow will be out at the end of May.  Make sure you sign up to my newsletter to be the first to hear about it!

Lots of love,

Do You Trust Me Yet?

The Promise (250 pages)As a reader, I find myself choosing the same authors time and time again. The ones I know and love. Who I have developed a deep trust for over the years, knowing that any story I pick up with their name on the cover is bound to be entertaining, engaging and leave me wanting more. I don’t want to waste my time with a book I’m not going to enjoy. Life is too short for that.

We are all creatures of habit. So what’s a novelist to do? Well it just so happens that I have the solution.

Early reviews:

“Beautiful, profound and from the heart. The Promise shows a depth of character development beyond that of standard ‘women’s fiction’, and offers readers a journey into what it means to love selflessly, completely, and what truly makes a mother – biological or otherwise.”

“I read this book in one sitting, I couldn’t put it down. There were points I could barely breathe due to the raw emotions I was feeling for the characters. I cried and I even found myself wanting another baby (!!) to relive the moments so beautifully written about in the promise. Well worth a read. Excellent.”

“This is a wonderfully written book, full of confronting emotions. It was an easy read, with a depth to the narrative that was enticing.”

“You cannot put this book down!”

“From the first chapter I was gripped. It is beautifully written and the characters are brought to life that you feel like you know them like your friends by the end of the novel.”

“I thoroughly enjoyed the book and it was definitely a page turner.”

The story:

Saraya Matthews knows that at thirty two years old, life should look better than this. With no spark and no passion, she decides enough is enough. She is going to find her purpose and stop wasting her life away.

Little does she know, her purpose will come in the form of an orphaned baby boy whose mother has been gruesomely murdered on the streets of London.

Saraya finds herself in a battle between what’s legal and what’s morally right. The authorities expect her to hand him over, but baby Flynn needs her. Saraya is surprised to discover that once she lets herself love him, she can’t turn back.

Flung full force into the unexpected position of mother and protector, she realises she will do whatever it takes to keep her baby safe in her arms.

But will she succeed?

A tale of unconventional adoption and the immeasurable strength of a mother’s love.
