Red Mice returns.

Amazing news!!! Just in time for both my birthday and Red Mice’s birthday – Rae and Jude are back in the classroom. To hear that a group of ‘young adults’ chose to read this book off such an esteemed college reading list is incredible. We beat ‘Educating Rita’ amongst others!! I’m blown away. Thank you.








2020

This has been quite a year, with the global pandemic our inner and outer worlds have changed. I hope this finds you keeping well, staying safe and being kind to one another.


Commercial Break

Since the plagiarism, I held back on publishing the next books in the series. Apologies to those who wanted more, I appreciate every single person who read Rae and Jude’s story, and I promise that they will return.

STOLEN

That’s the title for Red Mice TWO.

It’s very apt, on many levels 🙂 however it won’t be available yet for a while.


Launching…

Library Mice

Libraries are havens full of stories. I love the smell of books, books clamouring for attention, crammed and jammed on ceiling to floor shelves. It doesn’t get much better than all those unexplored worlds. I’ve spent a great deal of time reading and studying in libraries. So, I’m completely humbled and blown away to hear that Red Mice was requested, and is now indeed on shelves, in all Manchester libraries. Thank you.

Red Mice update.

Red Mice was copy thieved and plagiarised. That’s why I haven’t published book 2. I plotted arcs for the full series of five books, and book 2 was almost ready to go when I learned what had happened.

I had enjoyed every bit of Red Mice’s journey until that point – and yes, I now know this happens all the time. The empathy – and the true stories of morally-bereft fucknuts – really did help.

Two independent barristers agreed I had a case. But the woman in question was dropped by her agent, and the book was never picked up.

I didn’t speak outwardly on social media, no ‘blame and shame’ – that’s not how I roll – but the friends that knew about this were kind and supportive.

So, I want to thank you for reading and for being on this journey with me. It’s been quite the ride.

Red Mice is not over, and I will look forward to resuming our story when the time is right. Look after yourselves. ❤️

So… THIS happened!

Red Mice is being studied by a class of 17 year olds. And I’m blown away. ‘Themes of identity and self – particularly relevant to the young adult age group – flow through the novel’ – … the choices we make don’t always feel like ours. Red Mice is very much a tale about becoming aware of this, and seeing that things are not always what they seem to be.
