thrill seekers raven books

I’m super excited to announce that Thrill Seekers has just been released as a new imprint through Raven Books UK. I love the new cover – it looks like a best seller!

Best of all is the fact that at last it is going into bookstores! YES!! When it was first released, I had to distribute it to bookstores myself and managed to have it stocked by a handful of wonderful independents, but now Thrill Seekers is going mainstream – and in time for Christmas!! WOW!

I may be just a little bit happy about this.

I think I’m somewhere between the serene goddess and the camel.

So, if you’d like to buy a copy of Thrill Seekers for yourself, or someone else, for Christmas, it’s now available in all good bookstores throughout the UK and even here in Australia. Angus and Robertson have it reduced at the moment so go for it! See HERE for more information and to purchase.

Never give up on your book babies people. I fought to get Thrill Seekers published many years ago and I thought it had had its run.

But here it is with a second chance at life, going out into the world, not as a baby anymore but as a wild teen – like the characters it portrays. Go forth and conquer little book!


I’ll leave you with a quote from Brian, one of the main characters in Thrill Seekers

“Feeling ten feet tall with a chest as wide and strong as a bear’s, I roll with the movement of the boat. Salty water sprays my face and my cheeks stretch into a mighty grin.”

What second chances have you been given? Have any of your stories had a second chance at life? I’d love to hear from you.

Lots of love,

I’m excited to announce the release of my new book for young readers, In the Dark of Night. A chapter book for readers aged 8 and up, it’s part of Raven Books UK new series, Breakouts.

 Here’s the link to a super spooky trailer they’ve made for it 🙂

” ‘Are you an angel?’

This time the stick swung quickly towards the negative, as far to the right as it could go.

‘Oh no,’ said Sam under his breath. ‘This is … ’

‘Are you a devil?’ Nina asked.

The stick began to quiver, shifting slowly to the left.”

When Nina and Sam hold a séance in their local cemetery, they stir up more than they bargained for  – the ghost of a fourteen-year-old girl and a whole lot of trouble.

Can Nina solve the puzzle of the girl’s death in time to save her, and them all?

In the Dark of Night is part of a nationwide library promotion, Summer Reading Club. You can find out more about it here.

It was great fun to write, I hope it’s as much fun to read 🙂 Let me know what you think, I’d love to hear from you.
