TROUBLED WATERS is a murder mystery, set in the Channel Islands in the 1980’s, with flashbacks to WW2 during the German occupation. The location is Longuey, a small (fictional) island off the coast of Guernsey.Teenager Robbie is caught up in a murder investigation, when he discovers a drowned body on his first day home from boarding school. The holiday island run and managed by his parents is descended on by police from the mainland. Their questioning probes island residents, hotel staff and guests, and day-trippers. As secrets from the past and present are gradually uncovered, Robbie faces uncomfortable truths within his own family, and realises his idyllic island home will probably never be the same again.

Lines Dancing

This is my very first book, which is a poetry collection. I’d done many poetry readings of my own work and often got asked ‘Is there a book?’ or ‘Can I get a copy of some of these poems?’ Eventually I realised I’d have to go ahead and do it, so here it is. To find this book on Lulu, click here
