Hi everyone

As I've mentioned before, I'm donating all the proceeds from my book sales up until Christmas to the Red Cross. Jan Warburton and I have joined forces to combine our royalities to raise as much as we can for this worthy cause. As you'll know, the financial situation for all aid charities is desparate right now and they all need all the help they can get.

My first novel is A Gathered Radiance Here's an extract of one of my five star reviews:

I really enjoyed this book. The characters were so well realised - they seem like people you could know, have met down the pub for a drink.
Their situations are cleverly wrought, pitching them straight into trouble in a variety of situations that become more complex and threatening as the story progresses.
I had a real empathy with the two main characters particularly, and found myself really scared for them - I can't say why without spoiling the plot, but suffice to say these two individuals are in for a world of hurt! The plot gripped me, even more so as the pace of the story accelerated towards the end. There was a twist a didn't see coming that had me gripping the Kindle, and kept me reading way past the time I should have gone to sleep. It's quite a long book so it kept me occupied for several nights, but managed this without any boring bits - there wasn't a point when I could comfortably knock it off for the night without lying there, wondering what was coming next.

The Feral Spy (Sequel to A Gathered Radiance) The plot revolves around a former SOE agent, now living in modern day poverty. She's caught shoplifting, and faces charges of theft and GBH. To try to avoid a prison sentence, she retells her painful story in an attempt to gain sympathy from the authorities. But when a long buried secret is unearthed in the grounds of her ancestral home, she fears she won't be able to talk her way out of this one.

The bestseeling For The Love Of Honey: A Simon Grant Mystery: 3 (Simon Grant Mysteries)
is now available in paperback.

In paperback or kindle, I know that it will appeal to all the indie writers.

Posted on 31 Dec 2013 14:07:59 GMT
Please take a look at my books: All three are romantic novels but with a bit of an edge.

THE SECRET
A wickedly woven web of dark secrets, emotional conflict and romantic intrigue.
James Stirling; ambitious travel journalist, returns to London from the Far East. His future looks promising with a TV contract lined up. But endeavours to re-kindle his love affair with ex girlfriend, Ellie, are failing. When his flat mate Karl is murdered, things go even more awry.

A FACE TO DIE FOR
Pure nostalgia: London in the "swinging sixties" - set in the exciting world of fashion.
An intriguing and truly fascinating love story hampered by loose morals, drug taking and emotional conflict, at a time when anything risqué goes, and frequently does! The storyline reveals the scandal and glamour of a most decadent and revolutionary period in modern history.

JOANNA
Singapore 1969: Following a tragic miscarriage, Joanna finds her seemingly idyllic life with husband, Oliver, is slowly becoming a cruel illusion. A spin off sequel to A FACE TO DIE FOR

Now that I have the rights back for Where Dreams Are Born from my publisher, it has a new cover and a new price. I hope you'll check it out.

It was supposed to be a win-win situation-a safe environment in which to raise a son for single mom Vicky, housekeeping and childcare for widowed Jack. Neither one wants or expects anything more. Life, however, has more in store than either one imagines.

Roroblu's Mum, a Vine reviewer from London, UK says, "There isn't any one particular thing that makes this book a 5* read - everything in it does. It is believable. It's heartwarming, it comes across as totally sincere, it made me feel for the characters, as if I personally knew them, and it was beautifully written too. Not just in terms of phrasing and good grammar, but in the way it simply flowed."

ANN SELF says:
ROMANTIC THRILLER series of three large Kindles of over 100,000 words each. Sizzling mysteries woven into the tapestry of a love story and the magic of Dressage.

Springhill Estate in New England is deceptively beautiful. A nineteenth-century mansion shelters the wealthy Whitbeck family: Elliot the bullying patriarch, Cecily, tough and relentlessly ambitious, daughter Lucinda, blonde, beautiful and nasty, mentored by her arrogant grandmother Gladys in the fine art of upper-crust snobbery.
The multi-level Gothic barn is chock full of show horses, elite riders, coaches, stable personnel, and a wealthy investor in the Estate's European sport horses. What could go wrong here? Undercurrents of raging jealousy and a hint of supernatural will creep to the surface as Jane Husted fights to keep her head above water, ignore a man from her past, and keep her job as a showrider and trainer, not to mention her life.
Visit if you dare and mingle with the bluebloods and working stiffs. One of them is a killer. Some are not so visible.

SOMETHING MOST DEADLY , SOMETHING VERY GHOSTLY , SOMETHING MOST EVIL . Always clean romance.

The Sister Another reader review:
'This story isn't just another run of the mill crime thrillers. The backgrounds of the victims, the long reaching effects of the crimes on bereaved families, the actions taken by a policeman, desperate to bring a predator to justice, are woven into a text, where no loose thread is left dangling. Each character is well drawn, their actions and reactions, well observed, the text effortlessly carries a reader to a conclusion.'

Jacket quote:
"Ms Kolar-Brown deftly deals with many issues in this novel, not to mention a double serial killing of two young women. The identity of the killer and th motives were a complete surprise to me."

"Suspicion always haunts the guilty mind"

Jacket quote:
"Mira Kolar Brown is a gem, a pure diamond. Her characters and her plots capture the reader from page one; they're all-night reads, everyone of them. She merits a place alongside Val McDermid and Denise MIna, the other outstanding mysteriennes of the current generation."

Pursuit: A Thriller

CIA operative Paul Cook was trying to leave his past behind. Then a desperate and frightened girl travels to Portugal to meet with him, a girl with ties to his past. She begs Paul Cook to return to Africa to find the man she loves, a man believed to be dead. He's reluctant even when she shows him a priceless sapphire as proof that her man is alive, but then the man on the beach changes all of that.

Now Paul must race from the heart of Africa to the gem-rich island of Madagascar in pursuit of the world's most ruthless terrorist.

This is the revised pitch for The Sister
CORNWALL, ENGLAND, 1967. Two children witness a murder. One, a young Irish girl, views it from miles away, the other a seven-year old boy, from fifty yards . . .

A variety of seemingly unconnected people are woven into this epic tale as events transpire over the next thirty-nine years. Miller, a young man dogged by tragedy, who avoids close contact with people, for fear they may be blighted by his curse. Doctor Ryan, a psychiatrist with an interest in the paranormal, who wants to believe in life after death. The Sister: a former nun with the power to read the future, as well as the past . . . and more.

LONDON. In late 2006, with retirement looming, DCI John F Kennedy reopens the only unresolved case in his career - the disappearance of a young nurse, Kathy, twenty-three years earlier. The broadcast of an appeal for information about a teenage runaway, Eilise, is followed by a cold case reconstruction of Kathy's last known movements. A witness comes forward with new information and Kennedy, now set on the trail of a serial killer, unwittingly sparks a sequence of events that to his horror, lead back to him and his own very private life.

As the investigation unfolds, it becomes apparent that the murderer is no ordinary adversary. Resourceful and cunning, he has been operating undetected for over forty years, and it seems that only the original witnesses from 1967 can stop him.

But they have yet to meet . . .

The Sister, reviews from amazon.com: 'There are so many layers to this book and so many characters, but the author is able to not only keep all the balls in the air, but keep us turning the page (no easy feat in a book of this heft and scale). He has created a villian so uniquely evil and psychotic you won't soon forget him. The book is almost two stories in one that collide and although there is resolution to the book the author has set himself up brilliantly for a possible sequel. I know this is a self-published manuscript but I have to believe there is a very smart publisher out there who would snap this up. This is a beautifully written and paced thriller by an excellent storyteller.'

Elsewhere on the net: 'Pit your wits against the author, in this devious and compelling thriller, that will keep you guessing from start to finish.'
'A beautifully woven tapestry of exciting episodes, combined with very well drawn characters. The story doesn't flag at all. It held me every minute I was reading it. This is the work of a master storyteller and a very good writer.'
The Sister

A lavish two thousand-acre estate in New England. A stone mansion with a secret link to history. A monster gothic barn chock full of top-dollar showhorses and top-dollar people. What could go wrong here?
ROMANTIC MYSTERY/THRILLER series of three large Kindles (over 100,000 words each). Seventeen 4 and 5-star reviews for first book.

Sam was a former jockey, fit and strong, but the middle was spreading. Hard to stop it since he was no longer burning up calories clinging to the back of a thousand-pound racehorse. Still, the job as barn manager on Springhill Estate was easier and more of a soap opera than even the backstretch at Churchill Downs. Rich women prancing around on showhorses, attended to by arrogant trainers. Not to mention his employers the Whitbeck family, roosting in the estate's mansion.
Lucky thing that the `Grand Poobah' Elliot Whitbeck didn't travel down to the barn too often or he'd have to quit. His fellow working-stiffs were more likeable: DYLAN RIPLEY, wisecracking head stable boy, chunk of keys hanging with a death-grip on baggy pants. JANE HUSTED, show-rider and coach. Rich in talent but poor as a churchmouse; usually training someone else's horse as these things go, her own mount being an off-brand unlikely to carry her into the upper echelons of success. A former recipient of `Public Assistance' she was an easy target for Springhill's elite snobs.
LARS WALLENBERG, coach extraordinaire from the Spanish Riding School in Vienna. European classy and smooth but easy to get along with.
OWEN FLINT was another matter. Narcissistic and bad tempered, spooking horses and women alike; a legend in his own mind as he struts around in long glossy boots. LUCINDA WHITBECK. Rich, beautiful and spoiled with a collection personality faults rivaling Owen's. No surprise they couldn't stand each other. BRIAN CANADAY, new investor in Springhill's imported European sport horses. Jane had looked stunned when he first came to the estate, acting strange and jumpy. What was up with that?
The whole atmosphere in the monster barn was a little off lately, sort of unsettled. Sam sensed an eeriness creeping around in shadows that made hair on the back of his neck stand up and salute. Something just wasn't right...

SOMETHING MOST DEADLY , SOMETHING VERY GHOSTLY , and SOMETHING MOST EVIL . Always clean romance.

If you enjoy genealogical novels, Tainted Tree may be the book for you. Under £2 for the Kindle; 45 reviews, average 4.3 stars; 115,000 words, (or 367 pages in print.)

Winner of the second prize at the Winchester Writers' Conference, Tainted Tree tells the story of Addie Russell, an adopted American girl, who comes to England to investigate her family history, leaving behind a failed love affair. It's set in the 1990s, when Addie is left a house in the UK, and arrives from Boston with a view to learning all she can about her blood family. Her research takes her back to the early part of the 20th century and to Surrey and the West Country. A new romance awaits her, but family secrets both shock and thrill her.

Death on the Camino

"Death on the Camino" is a comic thriller set on the Camino de Santiago. Two young Scots attempting to walk the famous pilgrim trail across the top of Spain soon find themselves embroiled in a deadly game, the unwitting targets of a modern fanatical cult protecting the ancient secrets of the Knights Templar. As well as this, they blunder into a media war centred round a reality television spectacular in which three B listed celebrities attempt to walk part of the Camino. To this mixture is added elements of Camino history, superstition and the supernatural, topped up with a frisson of the absurd. A pleasant escape from the winter horrors!

"Death on the Camino"

The Sister At an unspecified location in the summer of 2007, a drowning man makes sense of his life, and a mystery unravels . . .
In Cornwall, England, during the summer of love, 1967 - two children witness a murder. One, a seven-year old boy, views it from fifty yards - the other, a young Irish girl, from miles away . . .
Following the lives of a group of unconnected people, as events transpire over the next thirty-nine years, one thing becomes clear. A killer is on the loose.

In late 2006, with retirement looming, DCI John F Kennedy reopens the only unresolved case in his career - the disappearance of a young nurse, Kathy, twenty-three years earlier.

But they have yet to meet . . .

A devious and compelling thriller that keeps you guessing from start to finish.

The Sister is an epic length novel that explores among its many themes, the role that chance plays in all our lives, how fate governs us, and perhaps ultimately . . . the possibility that there is a life after death. Warning: Adult content.

A selection of 5 star review clips left for The Sister on amazon.com and .co.uk:
'There are so many layers to this book and so many characters, but the author is able to not only keep all the balls in the air, but keep us turning the page (no easy feat in a book of this heft and scale). He has created a villain so uniquely evil and psychotic you won't soon forget him.

I know this is a self-published manuscript, but I have to believe there is a very smart publisher out there who would snap this up. This is a beautifully written and paced thriller by an excellent storyteller.'
'It is unusual for a Crime Thriller to take all that is best in its genre and turn it inside out. The Sister is a rare gem . . .'
'I read the first 5 chapters as a preview and then decided to buy it. After that I could barely put it down. Very, very good!'
'An edge of the seat thriller read that kept me reading long into the night . . .'

COMING SOON - The Life & Times of William Boule: Serial Killer. A completely self-contained spin-off novel, featuring a selection of characters first introduced in The Sister.
