I've been a multi-genre author since 1991.
My most lauded work to date is 2019's Tow Away Zone, a quirky small-town black comedy, set in modern day Arizona. It has shades of the Coen Brothers' film canon, and the black comedy Grosse Pointe Blank. It's been well-received by readers, with 5* reviews on Amazon.
In 2020 I published the sequel - Go Away Zone - which take the characters into a romcom caper with more love and livelihoods at stake.
In 2021 I completed the trilogy with cozy mystery Stow Away Zone.
My sci-fi journey started with space opera Sacred Ground being published on Kindle in 2012. It explores the deliberate, and accidental, casualties of a long interstellar war. It's about uncertainty, faith, and the consequences of actions.
In 2018 I self-published my 2nd sci-fi novel - Imperfect Isolation - which embraces robotics, asteroid mining and a snowy drive in an 80-year-old Porsche. It's a wild ride for my wisecracking heroine Enna.
The sequel, Reprisals, followed in 2019. This takes the heroes of the first book, and the consequences of their actions, and dials up the stakes for their survival.
In early 2021 I released the 3rd instalment, Trip Hazard, and in 2022 the 4th book in the series -Freeze Effect.
Years ago I penned a collection of offbeat humorous stories and vignettes inspired by the style of early Woody Allen prose. The Real Jamie Oliver and Other Stories; is basically a window into my nonsensical side.
My main project for 2022 is a dystopian drama which follows the tension of a family of four stuck for weeks in a nuclear shelter.
I'm also querying a historical romance Western, which was developed from an old screenplay script. It explores prejudice against the deaf community and the Native Americans, as a man struggles to reconnect with his lost son and come to terms with his own failings.
