In My Own Words:
The acting career didn't quite work out, so now I'm writing stories & beating off Hollywood film producers' offers while waiting for the right director to come along. Hobbies include Rafael Nadal and avoiding parties.

I'll read anything, from a cornflake packet down! Overwhelmed at the moment by all this fresh talent from indie authors, and there's a page on my web site devoted to indie ebooks, if you wanna drop by & introduce yourself & your book I'll probably be… Read more

Marie's Journey (Ginecean Chronicles) by Monica La Porta
Monica La Porta has created a very believable world, one in which men are not only inferior, but scorned. On Ginecea, they're not even needed to create children - at least not according to the government. Children who are naturally conceived are considered 'inferior' and destined for a life of drudgery. Marie is one of these 'fathered' children. Throughout the story she grows, and rids herself of prejudice, so allowing herself to embrace freedom. Having read "The Priest", I was again struck by the author's gentle message told in beautiful prose: To accept and respect the differences between people is to become truly "humankind". Entertaining and thought provoking, a story to… Read more
Too Quiet In Brooklyn (A Fina Fitzgibbons Mystery) by Susan Russo Anderson
5.0 out of 5 stars Classy mystery!, 29 Jan 2014
A diamond of a book, multi faceted and sparkling with wit. The author excels in expressive dialogue and in painting images with words.

In this introduction to the Fina Fitzgibbons' series, there is a race to find a missing child, a subject certain to raise tension in readers' minds. Told mainly from the pov of Fina, a rookie Private Investigator blessed with great insight, so readers also glimpse the emotions and some of the background of even cameo appearance characters. This is done so skilfully that the action never slows for a moment.
Occasionally, the story switches from first person pov to the kidnapper's third person point of view. A picture emerges of a young man who… Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Riveting!, 24 Jan 2014
The introduction to this story is exhilarating, and although the action slows down a little in the first couple of chapters as characters are introduced, the pace soon picks up again. Tension creeps in, and it becomes clear that the heroine, Rachel, is attracted to the local bookshop owner, Mark, but only accepts a date with him against her better judgement. The reasons for Rachel's unwillingness to get involved, and for her constant changes of identity and addresses are revealed: She has to stay one step ahead of Donovan King, a powerful man whom she once loved, but grew to fear. Her feelings for Mark and longings for a normal life cause her to stay in one place a little too long - a… Read more
