Bit late I know, but I really haven’t had a chance to update this website sooner. Life’s been hectic for some months now. It was wonderful to catch up with old friends at the Conference and make new ones. Plus the journey down to Melbourne gave me some great ideas for book seven.
We sold our house and moved in with our daughter in November. The slab for our new house was laid before Christmas and work will continue as soon as our builder gets back from holidays. If the fish are biting he could be gone indefinitely 🙂.
My sixth book, Fatal Flaw, is nearing completion. I feel most remiss that I haven’t finished it before now but life kept intervening. I’m very pleased with the way it’s come together. Mark Talbert, who readers met in Dangerous Deception, is a government agent having doubts about what he wants to do with his life after his narrow escape from death. When I was writing Dangerous Deception Mark kept developing beyond what I had initially planned for him, and by the end of the book I knew I had a character who had his own story to tell. From the emails I’ve received, this was picked up by my readers too. So Fatal Flaw was born.
Julie Evans, my main female character, is a complex woman. One who makes mistakes but is not afraid to rectify them. A woman who is willing to risk her life for the man she loves and the safety of her son. I’ve loved getting into her psyche and putting her in dangerous situations – she certainly reacts in the most amazing manner.
Then we come to Ruth Bellamy. When it comes to Ruth will you ask yourself how do we define good and evil? Or sanity and madness? Will you feel sympathy or condemnation? Especially when the final truth is revealed. And will you wonder if perhaps there’s a little bit of Ruth in each of us?
