Sheer Heart Attack!

Now what's happened? Read the latest exciting instalment of Baited Breath to find out (!) 

Enter Earl Boursin. I confess, this is probably the cheesiest (so sorry!) chapter in Knight in Shining Armour.

Marnie's Child is due anytime now. I suspect readers are waiting with Baited Breath? (sorry!)

Feeling Down this Easter Bank Holiday? Meet Bryn, the Plastic Man.

I've changed Holiday of a Lifetime: I hope you enjoy the new ending.

Is It Today?


A filthy, glue-sniffing, girl begs you for help at dusk. What do you do? A city’s inhabitants face annihilation. A traveller is given a bizarre, living gift. Chaos breaks out on a long-haul flight. An airman is seduced by a mysterious wartime dancer. A boy accepts a deadly dare, set by a bully. A mother tries to save her daughter from a raging inferno. Soldiers hunt down a ruthless insurgent. A man searches for his dead wife and child. Two contestants play the most dangerous game in the world. Charlie’s dead, isn’t he? Marnie wants the perfect child. Linda finds her secret place. Lou is dying…

Is It Today? they meet their fate? 

What will you do when the harsh realities of modern life become too much for you to bear?

Will fantasy be your only salvation?
