Please browse my books, mostly writing quality, edgy psychological dramas, four titles use the same characters (unless they've been killed off!) and are set in a small South Oxfordshire market town. We all know the small minded, incestuous nature of these communities where everyone knows everyone's business. Wide lawns and narrow minds! My 5th is a gothic blood fest that explores the perverted and is not for the faint hearted!
