I write thrillers full of action, tempered by few breathing spaces and dashed with dark humour. I keep the writing pacey and don’t allow stories to get bogged down in irrelevant detail.
Like most of us, my protagonists are capable, flawed and often reluctant to get involved, but unlike most of us, they constantly face unimaginable odds to survive.
My heroes are well fleshed out and believable, relying on their wits as much as their brawn.
I explore relationships and the interaction between my main characters to ensure that they are believable and worth investing a reader’s valuable time in.
I would love to know your thoughts. Please contact me!
Ethan Justice: Origins (#1)
In the morning, he’s struggling to remember.By the evening, he’s struggling to survive.John Smith’s risk avoidance policy just expired!
Waking up beside the gorgeous Savannah Jones, John is shocked to learn she was for hire, and he can’t pay the price – a thousand pounds or broken legs. In desperation, he turns to best friend, Mark, for the money. Only one problem – Mark has a dagger in his back.
John and Savannah are plunged into a dangerous world where wits and adrenaline are their only weapons and trust in each other their only certainty. As the body count mounts, they discover Mark wasn’t the person John thought, and his terrifying invention may well end up killing thousands, John and Savannah included.
A race to recover the missing invention pits the unlikely pairing against ex-SAS psychopath, Gregory Fisher, a man who will stop at nothing and kill anyone in his way to wreak revenge against the Government who stole his livelihood.
When Smith and Jones team up, the result is explosive.
This is a fast-paced, action-packed, character-driven thriller, guaranteed to make you laugh out loud, cringe, cry and cheer.
