One of my favourite books is Ann Rices book Interview with a Vampire. It inspired my best selling Desolation series. She suffered personal trauma as I have which was her catalyst. I particularly liked the character of Claudia the idea of a woman trapped in a childs body. Rices description is exquisite, excellent.

I was working on another book when i thought of this concept. I reasoned a novel about a pandemic would be better received if it came out while we are still experiencing this emergency. I put all my energy into "Pandemic." It is different from my other work, a real story of a strong woman fighting against the odds.
The novel doesn't have the glamour of the desolation series or the out of this world quality of my alien books. Writing a topical piece of work has different satisfaction than something entirely fictional. I used my ability to process current affairs and mixed facts and fantasy to enable the reader to empathise with the scenario which plays out in the text. I made up the sickness which spreads around the world not wanting it to be too similar to what we are experiencing at present.

"Luna," is a again a very personal novel. I was inspired to write this bitter sweet tale when suffering from post-natal depression. I drew upon these experiences mixed fact with fiction, a dash of lust, sex and psychological drama. Stirred it up and voila! Luna was born!
At the core is a mother and daughter parted by humans yet bound by unconditional love. This is not a traditional extraterrestrial book, this goes into the mind, psyche of a young alien woman.
Not for the faint hearted with strong adult sexual themes, but persevere and you will be rewarded with an intriguing tale. Luna is an intense story of prejudice and how the bond of motherly love can challenge the irrational.
