BLOOD in the WINE

My first published crime novel, All in the Mind won the NAWG Award for best novel, and a year later I won the same award for Watcher in Shadows. Although both these psychological suspense novels were set in Swindon where I now live, I wrote my third stand alone novel, A Death too Far, after a memorable holiday to the Galapagos Islands and the Amazon.
Two of my great passions are writing and travel so it’s no surprise that all my later novels were inspired by the places I have been lucky enough to visit.
The Fiona Mason Mysteries are cozy whodunits with plenty of edge. They have been described as Agatha Christie brought up to date! Recently- widowed Fiona decided to take up a new role as a tour manager for a coach company and each mystery is set in a different European country. Her investigations frequently bring her into conflict with the enigmatic man from MI6, Peter Montgomery-Jones, but she can always rely on her West Indian driver, Winston for support.
Our holiday to Morocco was never intended as a research trip but a few months later I found myself unable to begin writing the next in the Fiona Mason series set in the Rhone Valley because I had a four month wait until our holiday to France. Unable to sit twiddle my thumbs, I began planning the first of a new series – The Aunt Jessica Mysteries. Jessica is a history lecture who accompanies tours to exotic places further afield than those Fiona Mason travels.
