Book news! FLOWERS FOR THE DEAD given new life! Available for pre-order now #psychologicalthriller #

💐🥀🌹🥀💐 So here’s my big news for the day – the fabulous Bookouture are taking my self-published book FLOWERS FOR THE DEAD and republishing it so it can reach a wider audience!

It’s been re-edited and given a gorgeous new cover that I can’t stop looking at: those eye-catching colours, the movement in that stunning hair (I always wanted to be a red-head when I was a teenager, and now I’m getting that envy again!) and the petals billowing across the cover all come together to create something stunning and chilling.💐🥀🌹🥀💐

I’m particularly proud because this book was rejected by agents and publishers who all said that although they loved the story, characters, writing, etc, they thought readers wouldn’t buy a book with a serial killer as a main character. So what’s happening today is thanks to YOU, for buying this book, enjoying it, and telling others about it. 

If you haven’t yet read Flowers For The Dead, it will be published on 16 September, but is available for pre-order NOW via the links below!


He sees her. The one. The sunglasses don’t fool anyone, she is clearly upset, her nose and lips swollen from crying. They are two lost souls and he knows his love can help her. After all, she is not the first girl he has followed home…

Adam is the perfect boyfriend. He pays attention, he buys flowers. He knows everything about Laura and looks after her every need. He cooks, he cleans – he even does the dishes without being asked.

But Laura has never met Adam. Still grieving after a devastating car crash that killed her family, she’s forgetful and struggling to pull her life together. She’d be horrified to know the depth of this unsettling fantasy in which she is the star. But there’s no denying the chill she feels every time she finds another elaborate bouquet on her doorstep, or wakes in the night sensing she is not alone.

Adam has been watching her every move, and now it’s time to act. Except, there’s one little detail he’s missed: Laura has been watching him too.

After everything she’s been through, Laura’s ready to fight back and stop being the victim in her own life story. But in Adam’s world, there are no happy endings…

An unputdownable thriller guaranteed to have you sleeping with the light on and questioning everything you think you know about serial-killer thrillers!
