My second novel, Amazon bestseller Her Turn To Cry, was also published by Harper Collins and released in July 2016.
London, 1965. Top model Joycie Todd lives a glittering life with photographer Marcus Blake. But her childhood tells a different story…
When she was eleven, Joycie’s mother disappeared. Run away with another man, so everyone says. But Joycie can’t forget the thumps she heard in the night, or the bloodstained rug hidden under the bed. A rug that was gone the next day.
Twelve years later, Joycie has left her past behind. But when an old friend dies, Joycie is left a letter beseeching her to find out the truth. Unable to keep the door locked any longer, Joycie sets out to discover why her mother left her – if she ever really did.
As she travels to the shabby seaside towns of her childhood, Joycie soon finds that it’s not just her mother who vanished all those years ago. Joycie knows the disappearances are connected, she just doesn’t know how. But there’s someone out there who does – and they will do anything to keep it buried.
I talk about my research for Her Turn To Cry over at the Killer Reads Blog where you can also read the first chapter.

Now, released from prison, all she wants is to be reconciled with her remaining son, 13-year-old Tommy. But he demands to know the full truth of what happened on that fateful night.
Probing into the past, however, turns out to be a dangerous exercise, threatening not only Clare’s sanity, but ultimately her life…
