I have written a novel called Valhalla which I will be publishing next year. It is a tale of a young English girls unlikely love affair with a Viking who takes her as his captive. The story is brutal, graphic, dark, for over eighteens only, with sexual references. Yet it is much, much more than just that. The main character explores her sexuality becoming empowered by becoming a pagan. As she develops in the book Arianna sees how repressive her original Christian roots were. She develops bi-curious urges and fights along side the enemy. Valhalla was inspired by my first love and has a twist at the end.

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.
