We Have Lift Off!

Okay! So I know I already had a victory dance for Flying Free when the Kindle edition became available, but this is it! This is the proper launch.

I have in my hands the BRAND NEW PAPERBACK EDITION of


flying free cover 2290x1520mm

So, as well as being available to buy as an eBook on Amazon Kindle,

Flying Free is also now available as a paperback on Amazon.co.uk and FeedARead.com, Waterstone’s.com and Barnes & Noble…so look out for it there if that’s where you usually purchase books. And it can be ordered through bookstores everywhere.

Ask me if I’m happy?

Such fun!


What’s the book about?

Well, it’s not all ‘happy-clappy’ —  but, nor is it misery-lit. Far from it. It’s a novel filled with hope and positive energy.


 Flying Free is almost a contemporary novel, set in 1997, about someone who could be your neighbour, your friend, or even you.

~~~Perhaps you’ll recognise the situation~~~

Jayne has been hiding from her past. If fact, she thought she’d escaped from it when she and her mother ran away to Edinburgh when Jayne was a girl.

She thought the past would stay in the past, but, twenty years later, when her friend, Tom, asks her to marry him, he unwittingly opens her personal Pandora’s Box, and now she can’t seem to close the lid on all that rushes out at her, whirling her into a cycle of self-sabotage.

~~~Been there, done that, do I hear you say?~~~

Unable to commit to a relationship, she pushes Tom away…along with everything else that’s important in her life.

~~~Why, oh why do we do that?~~~

There are things Jayne had chosen to forget. There are others she can’t remember even when she tries. What she does remember is fear.

Feeling emotionally trapped by her past, she finds someone she can talk to, but, since trust is one of her major issues can she let this stranger help her?

Instead of slamming the lid shut on all that has been let loose, he helps her open it wider and makes her face her fears to allow her to begin the process of healing. When she feels ready to commit, will Tom still be waiting?

She finds that, as in the fable, there is one last thing left in the Box. 

That thing is hope. 

This novel traces a woman’s struggle to become the woman she wants to be in order to marry the man she loves.

~~~Hands up if you’ve never struggled with things from your past.

You win first prize. Lucky you.~~~


If you click on the link to your right, you can hear me reading the first chapter of Flying Free.

I hope you enjoy both the reading and the novel.

Thank you.
