Checking In released + When Skies Have Fallen Rainbow Award

Rainbow Book Award Runner Up: When Skies Have Fallen





When Skies Have Fallen - my historic romance - was fourth runner-up in the Rainbow Book Awards, which is a wonderful thing. It made me take stock and reflect on why I wrote the story.

There is a history hidden behind the glamour and excitement of the swashbuckling heroes and flying aces whose exploits litter fictional accounts of the Second World War. To reach it took hour upon hour of research, reading first-person accounts of what it was like on the home front. This was the story I set out to tell.


For many in war-torn 1944, love blossoms in the dance hall, and airman Arty Clarke is no exception. He's a thinker and a dreamer; however, it's not the beautiful, talented dancer in his arms - his best friend Jean - who inspires his dreams. For when his gaze meets that of Technical Sergeant Jim Johnson, Arty dares to imagine a different dance.

Their love is forbidden, by both the armed forces and the law, but with Jean's cunning and support, Arty and Jim try to bridge the distance between them and find true love despite the danger and a life-threatening disaster that could destroy Arty's dreams for good.

Can the pair stand strong together, no matter how many skies have fallen?


New Release: Checking In



Checking In - the continuation of Sol and Adam's story (Checking Him Out) - was released 15th December. If you haven't already, you can download Checking Him Out for free pretty much anywhere.

Freelance engineer Sol Brooks is in hot demand. He's landed a couple of big contracts and is all set for a business trip back to the other side of the pond. The last thing he needs is an unexpected visitor to complicate his departure.

Especially when that visitor puts his relationship with Adam on rocky ground.

Determined to fulfil his contractual obligations, Sol goes ahead with the trip. It's a great opportunity and a chance to catch up with old friends. And he's going to check in regularly.

What could possibly go wrong?
