I am a crime writer, mostly 'cozy' crime but also some psychological thrillers. There are two sets - Cleo Marjoribanks Mysteries (set mostly in the New Forest) and The South Downs Murder Mysteries. There are also some stand alone novels. They are all on Kindle - if you don't have one, get the Kindle APP!
I am also an international travel writer so some of my blogs are about my travel.
I hope you buy lots of my books, enjoy them and enjoy my blogs.

"Writing can be Murder"
Yes, sometimes we writers can find it murderous - especially when the ideas don't work! But in this instance I am, of course, talking about my latest e-published book, Writing can be Murder.
The action takes place in Florida where Trudi Johnson lives. She is a travel writer and is befriended by Marcia Annenburg who introduces her to a writers' circle. There Trudi makes friends with Lucia O'Mahoney. Marcia is a realtor with ambitions to be a writer. She copies other people's ideas and presents them as her own. Is it a member of the circle who got fed up with this and killed her and another circle member? From information garnered by Trudi and Lucia, Detective Ricardo Gomez solves the crimes. Nearly too late for Trudi and Lucia who almost become victims.
As I lived for many years in Florida it was inevitable that I would be tempted to write at least one book set in the Sunshine State. Although the town in which the action takes place is situated on the Gulf Coast, it is an entirely fictitious one.
This book is now available via Amazon/Kindle and from Smashwords for other formats such as Apple I-Pad, Barnes & Noble, Diesel, Kobo and for downloading onto the computer.
I have had many favourable comments about my previously published book "Homicide in Hampshire" and am looking forward to hearing from readers of "Writing can be Murder". Thank you all for your continued support.
