THREE THIN LINES TO INSANITY
Latest Novella in Publisher's hands, July 2017:
"Tony is a Brit in his early 50s. It is 1982 on the Caribbean island of Margarita. He knows Sylvia has had a troubled past and has delusions caused by a mental disorder. However, he needs her to keep his own sanity, even though she is a danger to him and herself. So what can he do? He is madly in love with this gorgeous 36 year old American woman. He struggles to cope while she bubbles with utterly adorable enthusiasm.
Though a carefully constructed narrative delivering tons of humor, it's not all laughs. Things get ugly when she starts to deal cocaine at the beach bar to the tourist clientele. Then her mother dies, sending her and their affair into a tail-spin. Tony seeks help from a psychiatrist who had treated her some years before, and the shocking truth is laid bare. Could Sylvia have killed her own mother?
One delusion after another throws Tony down a path of self-destruction until finally he is at his wits end. Revelations surface: Her delusions were spawned from years of horrendous childhood trauma after her father had died when she was just 14. Sylvia finally loses it completely; is taken to hospital. Tony is now contemplating suicide. He doesn't know it, but he needs a miracle - can Sylvia deliver?"

BODIES IN RUINS
Final Edit, June 2017. An horrific psychological crime thriller:
"The plots, of which there are many, are suspended between affluent, city life and an isolated village in the West Country. It is the story of a love that develops between a respectable paediatrician and a young, female social worker; an affair to be deviously manipulated by a beautiful but deranged widow.
In part, it explores the windings of male sexuality from the view point of four female characters, while the compassionate and confused man in the middle, cursed with being unable to understand nor control his sexual urges, is left open to extreme exploitation. He is a child, serial killer.., living a double life. However, with care and great tenderness, our social worker, on discovering the appalling truth, finally breaks through and finds the answer to the madness haunting him.
How, perhaps, this story differs from many in the genre is that it asks the reader to switch main character allegiances: While one would at once abhor the monstrous abductor and might have sympathy for the charismatic widow, mid way through the reader is forced to reconsider and, by story's end, they could well be sympathising with the woes of an abductor while abhorring the monstrous widow. Throughout, a fulcrum of stability resides within the fragile yet unwavering mind of a social worker."

FROM WHERE TEARS COME
Just completed June 2017. A tear-jerking Romantic Saga:
"The epic story of love lost and found many times over, following the life of a girl through age 12 when she first runs away from home, to the age of 60 when she finally falls back into the arms of the man she has always loved. From street urchin to the most famous woman in the world, this Bavarian bombshell breaks hearts and balls throughout her life, yet still cannot get her first lover out of her mind.
This is no ordinary story. Its style is quite simply shocking; the pace, phenomenal. As Hitchcock famously said, "A film is like life with the boring bits cut out..." Exactly how this story is written.
Small scenes from her life are played out, each as if an anecdote – no clutter, nothing between them. Furthermore, no two scenes run consecutively; chronology is thrown out of the window, any gap between events swallowed up by another time zone to keep the pace blitzing. Yet the reader is never lost. Subtle phrases and mesmerizing overlaps link scenes together as if by elastic. The reader is hurled back and forth through time, often with gaps of 20 years or more, and with each new scene some new revelation to tie past and future events.
Moreover, the narrator is a character in the plot. Not a real person, a dark force one might suggest, able to manipulate scenes and cause havoc for his own reward. His name is Pain. He knows from where tears come; it is his job to make people cry. Every scene is devastating, whether it be the characters falling back in love, a shattering loss, a hilarious moment of madness or having love ripped from them once again. It is a story designed to make the reader cry, on every page."
