A New Year, A New Book

As we wave goodbye to 2015, it leaves me in a nostalgic mood. It was a very busy writing year for me with the release of my third novel in the June, re-gaining the rights to my debut in the summer, and writing the next Will Jackman novel. So I couldn’t have been more ready … Read More →

New Book Coming July 2015!

You may remember an old post back in May when I reported that I had completed the first draft of my third book. I procrastinated for a while, spent time editing, dithered about, changing some more things and finally sent it to the Commissioning Editor at Legend Press for consideration.

Today, I’m delighted to announce that she liked it (phew!) and the book, which is called Before It’s Too Late, will be published on 1.7.15.

Before It’s Too Late introduces Detective Inspector Will Jackman and is set in the beautiful Stratford-upon-Avon. Here is the blurb:

Following an argument with her British boyfriend, Chinese student Min Li is abducted whilst walking the dark streets of picturesque Stratford-upon-Avon alone.

Trapped in a dark pit, Min is at the mercy of her captor. Detective Inspector Will Jackman is tasked with solving the case and in his search for answers discovers that the truth is buried deeper than he ever expected.

But, as another student vanishes and Min grows ever weaker, time is running out. Can Jackman track down the kidnapper, before it’s too late?
