'Escaping Psychiatry' is a collection of three stories in the psychological thriller genre with the same protagonist, Mary, a psychiatrist and writer. She is trying to develop her literary career but circumstances and friends conspire to keep dragging her back to psychiatry.
In ‘Cannon Fodder’ Mary has to assess Cain, an African-American man accused of inciting a religious riot when he claimed that he could hear God and God was black. He might not be mad, but Mary is sure he’s hiding something.
‘Teamwork’ sees Mary hoodwinked into offering therapy to Justin, a policeman feeling guilty after his partner and ersatz father was killed on-duty. Before Mary can extricate herself from the case, things get personal.
In ‘Memory’ Mary goes missing after an incident with Phil, who is manic as he hasn’t been taking his medication. When she is found, she has been the victim of a horrific crime, but they soon discover she was luckier than they had realised.
The epilogue revisits Mary at the point of the trial of her abductor and sees what changes have taken place in her life. Will she finally manage to Escape Psychiatry?

Do you believe in love at first sight or first click? Do you think your life should be a romantic novel? Would you like to be able to choose the ending? If you’ve answered YES to any of these questions or feel intrigued by them, this novel offers you a unique opportunity. You can choose what kind of ending you want: unhappy, happy or neutral.
Lilith, the protagonist, does not believe in all that ‘romantic nonsense’. When her boss and friend, Debbie, asks her to create a digital books section for the library where they both work, she triggers a series of events that shake all of Lilith’s strongly held beliefs.
Her dislike for social networking is put to the test and despite her love for privacy and technological naïveté she manages to make a number of virtual connections. The most interesting one, without a question, is Zane, a talented and attractive author and painter. Their friendship quickly develops into something else. But, what exactly? Lilith doesn’t have a clue.
A bet with Rowena, her childhood best-friend, offers her an opportunity to test her feelings for Zane and their relationship, and a meeting, ‘real’ this time, is organised in the gorgeous setting of Bermuda.
At that point, you, the reader, have the choice. Do you want the story to end up happy ever after? Do you think there’s no chance for them? Or maybe you believe that there has to be more to life than romantic stories and a neutral ending or new beginning is more true to life? There are three endings for you to pick from. See what you think, or you can read all of them and choose your favourite, or even create your own and let me know. I’d love to hear from you! (I leave you links to contact me at the end.) Don’t be strangers!
Angelic Business. The Full Trilogy, collects the three novels in the Angelic Business YA series, and follows the story of Pink, who is the ‘elected’ to sort out the differences between Heaven and Hell. In Angelic Business 1. Pink Matters, we meet Pink, a 17-year-old girl, good student, articulate and smart. But she has never been the centre of attention or reached the top ten list of the most popular and attractive girls at school. When two guys, G and Azrael, suddenly appear, claim to be angels, insist that she is, indeed, ‘special’, fight for her attention and help, and tell her she is the key to the future of the universe, she is quite cynical. But these guys can ‘do’ pretty amazing things, even miracles, so she has to do some thinking. In Angelic Business 2. Shapes of Greg, Pink discovers that demons come in all shapes and sizes, that some celestial and demonical beings can be very stubborn, and manages to save one of her closest friends, Sylvia, from a very dangerous situation, with a little help, both human and otherworldly. But she knows she has to be careful because Hell doesn’t lose gracefully and demons make no favours. Everything comes with a price tag. Angelic Business 3. Pink, Angel or Demon?, gets angels and demons really close to Pink’s home. She knows she has to make a decision before somebody decides for her. She does her best to ensure that all her friends and family will be happy, and prepares for the final battle, with some plotting and conspiring in between and even a bit of romance thrown in for good measure.
The battle between Heaven and Hell will be fought by Pink, a 17 years old girl, who refuses to believe in angels and demons. But if they dare to threaten her friends and family, they’ll really have a fight on their hands.
