Title: So Many Ways of Loving
Release Date: 17th June 2021

So Many Ways of Loving is a novel in which, at first glance, nothing much happens – there’s no espionage, no high-speed car chases, murders, or haunted houses. But in a sense, everything happens – loss, death, grief, serious illness, but also birth, unexpected romance, fresh adventures and numerous possibilities. Three women in their 50s and 60s travel through the most momentous year of their lives, and as they do so, they are reminded of just how much we depend upon family, friends and pets.

Set in London in the mid-1980s – a decade of opportunity where everything seemed possible – Helen Bartlett, a popular news presenter and Sam Aziz, a glamorous middle-eastern cardiac surgeon, meet on a live TV programme. They dislike each other on sight, and the interview is a disaster. However, a chance second-meeting leads to a great passion and soon they are desperately in love. But soon the differences in their cultural backgrounds begin to manifest themselves. And a debt of honour that Sam cannot ignore returns to haunt him.

Do they have to relinquish the most magical relationship either of them has ever known? Can they find a way out of their dilemmas? Or do they have to accept that no matter how modern we are, we cannot fly in the face of the traditions that served, and shaped us, for centuries?

Title: It's Who We Are
Published by: On Call
Release Date: 16th January 2018
Pages: 352
ISBN13: 978-0995454033

This is a story about identity and change, and it reflects the turbulence so many of us experience in mid-life just when we had assumed we would feel stable and secure.

The novel takes place in Norfolk, where all the main characters were born, as well as in London and the west coast of Ireland.

As we grow older, and deal with the deaths of our parents, we can stumble upon family secrets that shock us to the core. The surprise in this book is beyond what the characters, or indeed any reader, might ever imagine could happen. And poses the question: are you really sure you know who you are?

A contemporary novel, the story is played out against the background of the current political upheaval we are all dealing with, but is ultimately a feel-good book about love, possibilities, and the invaluable richness of friendship.
