Paperback Release of The Daughter of River Valley

I am delighted to share the news that The Daughter of River Valley is now available in paperback!

In 2014, prior to publication, The Daughter of River Valley was short-listed for the New Talent Award at the Festival of Romantic Fiction and nominated by InD’Tale magazine for the RONE “Indie and Small Published Book Award”.

The Cornish tale was inspired by a beautiful valley in Cornwall, a head injury I sustained as a child and Cornwall’s strong community spirit and heritage. I was delighted when award winning publisher, Choc Lit, asked to see it and subsequently published it as an ebook. The audio publisher, Soundings, later published it as an audio-book. Today I am thrilled that it has now been released as a paperback so a wider audience can enjoy it.

Join Beth Jago, the heroine, as she finds herself in a very difficult situation with a man she is unsure she can trust …

The Daughter of River Valley

Can you trust a man with no name?

Cornwall, 1861 Beth Jago appears to have the idyllic life, she has a trade to earn a living and a cottage of her own in Cornwall’s beautiful River Valley. Yet appearances can be deceptive …

Beth has a secret. Since inheriting her isolated cottage she’s been receiving threats, so when she finds a man in her home she acts on her instincts. One frying pan to the head and she has robbed the handsome stranger of his memory and almost killed him.

Fearful he may die, she reluctantly nurses the intruder back to health. Yet can she trust the man with no name who has entered her life, or is he as dangerous as his nightmares suggest? As they learn to trust one another, the outside threats worsen. Are they linked to the man with no past? Or is the real danger still outside waiting … and watching them both?

Publication Day for A Daughter’s Christmas Wish!

I am delighted to share the news that A Daughter’s Christmas Wish is now available as an

ebook and audiobook!

A Cornish Christmas wish sent across the ocean …

Christmas, Cornwall 1919

A promise to a fellow soldier leads Nicholas to Cornwall for Christmas, and to the teashop managed by Rose; the youngest daughter of a family whose festive spirit has been blighted by their wartime experiences.

But as Nicholas strives to give Rose the best Christmas she could wish for, he begins to question whether his efforts are to honour his friend, or whether there is another reason …


Nicholas recognised the woman in the tea shop immediately, despite having never met her before. He had no doubt it was her. He had gazed at her face more times than he cared to admit to and knew every feature as well as his own. She was the first thing on his mind upon waking and the last when he closed his eyes at night. She even visited him in his dreams – an intangible presence that would not stop haunting him after all this time. What would she think if she knew he carried her photograph in his pocket and had done so for more than a year? Yet she probably didn’t even know he existed. He knew a lot about her, though, and why she carried so much sadness in her eyes.

I am so excited to bring you this Christmas novella set in Cornwall a year after the Great War. It is a countdown to Christmas at a time when England is still learning to live in peacetime again. This festive novella is my way of honouring those who died in WW1, those who survived and those who waited at home. So join Rose and Nicholas, as Christmas approaches, and follow their journey through the festive snow.
