  • The House Between Time £8.99

    Longlisted for the Bath Novel Award 2023

    Bea was living a life of quiet desperation. Her husband was abusing her; her job no longer fulfilled her. She was fearful, isolated. When the chance came, she escaped. She sought refuge in the only place she could, a cottage that had stood for centuries overlooking the sea. It offered more than four walls. The spirit of her ancestor travelled through eight hundred years to give her the strength and guidance she needed to face her enemies, and to save her life. Two women, bonded by blood, reach across time to one another. Forces of darkness from the past and the present work against them both. Can they find their courage?

    This time-slip novel is set in medieval Anglesey and the present day. A mystery thriller. This is a book for adults. 379 pages.

    The prequel, coming later this year: The Sound Of Time.

  • A Bouquet of Nightshade (Unspoken Voices Book 1) £8.99

    Manchester 1895. In the midst of a heatwave, a sinister killer stalks the city.  One by one the victims are brought to Arnold Kelley and Daughter – Undertakers of Distinction for their professional services. Sophia Kelley is clairvoyant, and the souls of the victims reach out to her. She experiences visions of their relationship with the killer; she sees their terrible deaths at his hands. In 1888, Jack the Ripper’s victims were all working girls and the Manchester killer is equally selective. He chooses young, middle-class women who are tall, blonde and engaged in professions that in previous decades had been taken by men. Sophia is such a one. Society’s attitude to women is changing and the killer objects.

    Sophia is engaged to marry a police sergeant, Nathaniel Roberts, and they each uncover clues to the killer’s identity which do not blend until almost the last moment, when both their lives hang in the balance.

    A novel for adults. 446 pages.

    The Unspoken Voices Trilogy: This is a series of three books, historical novels with a strong supernatural element. The three form the saga of people connected through family or the ties of friendship from the late Victorian period to WW1 in 1915 and finally WW2 in 1940. All are set in or near Manchester.

    The main characters are all women. The first, the Victorian, is a female undertaker who is clairvoyant. Her fiancé is a police sergeant. She’s threatened by a mysterious killer who stalks the city one hot summer. The second is a nursing matron and a widow who takes a post at an auxiliary hospital in WW1 where both supernatural and human evil threatens the most vulnerable. The third book, in WW2 has two main female characters, one a journalist with the Manchester evening News and unmarried, and the other secretary to the undertaker. She is happily married with two children and heavily pregnant.

    The romantic relationships change and develop for each of the women and although the men are very important in the stories, it’s the women’s lives and voices that the reader focuses on. Each woman faces threats to her life or that of someone she cares for. Sometimes this comes from a living person, sometimes a malevolent supernatural presence and sometimes from the environmental and historical circumstances at the time. All the women take advantage of the opportunities that open for women in their own time, but not without facing and overcoming the difficulties that arise.

  • A Legacy of Ghosts (Unspoken Voices Book 2) £8.99

    It’s World War One. In a beautiful mansion on a hill, the ghosts of past ages and present nightmares weave coils around a nurse and a soldier. February 1915, the Great War is gathering momentum and Haigh Hall, home of the Earl of Balcarres, has been loaned as an auxiliary hospital. Locals know that the Hall and woods are haunted. Alice Martin returns to her home town to take up her new post as Matron after the sudden and mysterious death of her predecessor. Soldiers with terrible injuries have been sent to recover in the Hall that is surrounded by ancient woodland and wide landscapes. But each soldier brings with him phantoms from the war. Alice finds that one officer draws her attention whilst conflicts are brewing between the Hall staff, leading to the greatest danger for one of them.

    The atmosphere is charged, and a fearful ghostly presence stalks the passageways of the Hall which stands on the site of much older dwellings. Alice must negotiate on all fronts to ensure the hospital runs well and to do this she enlists the help of her friend, Sophia, a clairvoyant and medium.

    Two women, one war.

    Almost Christmas, December 1940 and the enemy unleashed a blitzkrieg on Manchester. Two women, out in the city on the first night, are caught in the fury of the raid. Set against the background of a second world war, this is the story of Marianne and Florrie, two very different women joined by long family friendship, but both facing a crisis point in their lives.

    Marianne Barkley, daughter of a serving general is one of the Manchester Evening News’ top reporters and is out looking for a story; but she has a secret love that threatens her judgement. Florrie Mason, once a maid at Haigh Hall, and now a secretary to an undertaker, is heavily pregnant and desperate to get home.
    Florrie’s route home lies past Ordsall Hall. This ancient and troubled place, once a splendid Tudor mansion, always pulls Florrie’s attention. As a medium, voices from the Hall’s past cry out to her; but on the night of the air raid, she felt a new presence bearing down on her, an evil and powerful spirit. In the following weeks, events conspire, and tensions build to a critical level bringing the two women together in a dangerous finale.
