Be quick of miss out!

For a few days only my Gothic historical fiction, Estella’s Revenge, is available on netgalley! I’d love to see your reviews and get your thoughts, so please head on over there now and get your request in. It's only available until the end of the month (January 2024), so be quick!

It’s inspired by Great Expectations character Estella Havisham. I kept thinking about the damage done to a child raised in darkness and told daily to ‘never love, never trust’. Just imagine… It’s so cruel, and the psychological impact would be catastrophic.

You don’t need to have read the Charles Dickens classic to enjoy my book. Estella’s Revenge was written to stand alone. And if you do know Great Expectations…you’ll see a whole new side of it that’s been hiding in plain sight.

To find out more, go to Netgalley.

Think you know Great Expectations? Think again…

You know Miss Havisham.

The world’s most famous jilted bride.

This is her daughter’s story.

Raised in the darkness of Satis House where the clocks never tick, the beautiful Estella is bred to hate men and to keep her heart cold as the grave.

She knows she doesn’t feel things quite like other people do but is this just the result of her strange upbringing?

As she watches the brutal treatment of women around her, hatred hardens into a core of vengeance and when she finds herself married to the abusive Drummle, she is forced to make a deadly choice:

Should she embrace the darkness within her and exact her revenge?

Estella’s Revenge is a stunningly original, gripping Gothic read, perfect for fans of Stacey Halls, Eve Chase and Jessie Burton.
