Leaving school early to work in a factory to buy an electric piano, I joined a band and that paid off as today I still enjoy playing the Blues. I continued to get pleasure from writing as it initially grew from writing songs, poetry, then plays. Later on teacher training opened up the world of literature. I won the Sussex Playwriting competition and the Richard Burton Poetry competition. An MA in Creative Writing followed and as a published poet I perform regularly. Pristine In Blue was professionally staged as part of the Milton Keynes Fringe and received critical acclaim. My dearest friend and wife Ashra gives me much support, inspiration and laughter. She has opened up the doors to India, her country of birth, which continues to intrigue, fascinate and mesmerise me. Lemon Seas is the result. I am fortunate still to share my work, and facilitate writing workshops. Book reviews online: PublishedBestsellers website.
“Astounding. Thrilling. Amazing.” —Gillian Flynn

“Absolutely gripping.” —Louise Penny
For readers of Gillian Flynn and Tana French comes one of the decade’s most anticipated debuts, to be published in thirty-six languages around the world and already in development as a major film from Fox: a twisty, powerful Hitchcockian thriller about an agoraphobic woman who believes she witnessed a crime in a neighboring house.
It isn’t paranoia if it’s really happening . . .
Anna Fox lives alone—a recluse in her New York City home, unable to venture outside. She spends her day drinking wine (maybe too much), watching old movies, recalling happier times . . . and spying on her neighbors.
Then the Russells move into the house across the way: a father, a mother, their teenage son. The perfect family. But when Anna, gazing out her window one night, sees something she shouldn’t, her world begins to crumble—and its shocking secrets are laid bare.
What is real? What is imagined? Who is in danger? Who is in control? In this diabolically gripping thriller, no one—and nothing—is what it seems.
Twisty and powerful, ingenious and moving, The Woman in the Window is a smart, sophisticated novel of psychological suspense that recalls the best of Hitchcock.
