OUT NOW: STORM WARNING Second edition only $0.99 for limited period


My 2020 novel Storm Warning is now available in a revised edition from Amazon in ebook, paperback and KU. If you have already purchased the previous version, then the new edition should automatically update in your Kindle library.

So, what’s new and why?

Well, to make a long story short, the original version did not go down quite how I planned. My intention was that Storm Warning would be the first novel in a series set onboard the cruise ship Atlantic Star. The first few books would be a set of loosely linked standalone romances that would conclude in a final novel which would tie everything together. As the first story, Storm Warning set up the format –a standalone love story between two men, Jamie and Dexter, who meet on the ship. It’s pretty self-contained delivering the happy ending the guys deserve. A short epilogue at the end of the book set up the premise for the series and ended on a cliff-hanger.

And there lies the problem. To say the epilogue didn’t go down well is putting it mildly. It was trashed. Reviewers who admitted they liked the book, marked it down for those last few pages. It seemed like everyone hated it. I should have made it clearer in the marketing that Storm Warning was the first of series, but by then the damage was done. Though I loved the book, the setting and the characters, the backlash cut deep, and I lost all heart for the series.

So now, this second edition revises the book into a complete standalone. The controversial cliff-hanger now appears as a deleted scene with author notes explaining my intention for the series and how it might have developed. Hopefully, fresh readers will be able to enjoy Jamie and Dexter’s story, without wondering WTF when they reach the end.

I love Storm Warning. I knew soon after publication, when I abandoned my plans for the series, that I would rework it into a single title, but it’s taken a little time and distance before I felt able to look at it again. Now that the disappointment of the original release has subsided, I’m delighted to present it again in this new version.

For a limited time the ebook is available for just $0.99

 The Runner. Book 3 in the Success Series is available in ebook now.

An Olympic hero faces his longest run – to make up for the past.

Alex Schaefer is a sports journalist and commentator at the top of his game. He hosts a successful weekly podcast has just written the biography of a world class football player. With his career on an upward trajectory, Alex has never been busier. There is no time in his life for love or romance.

Ethan Bower was used to success. As a British sprinter, he won a host of silver and gold medals at the Olympics, European and Commonwealth championships, and spent over a decade at the top. Persistent injuries brought Ethan’s career to an abrupt halt in his mid-thirties. Now he has to start over again. Trying to get his foot in the door of athletics commentary and presenting isn’t easy.

Ethan and Alex have history. Eight years ago, at the height of Ethan’s success, Alex was chosen to ghost write his autobiography. An experience they would both rather forget. Ethan hated what Alex wrote about him; a fact he’s made very public. When Ethan attends the launch of Alex’s latest book, they meet again for the first time in years and something becomes apparent to both of them – they have each improved with age. Now in their thirties, they are older and more mature.

Can they put the past behind them and their ambitions for the future to take a chance on each other now?
