My new book In The Name of Allah is now available on Amazon. It follows the story of two couples living in London, Calvin and Amir and Shane and Imran. Shane, Imran and Calvin are friends for years and then Calvin meets Amir who secretly has terrorist tendencies.
It is the hardest book I have ever written. With the subject matter being so dark, it was very difficult and emotionally-draining at times. The topic is so sensitive so I researched a lot for the story. While I love Calvin and Imran too, my favourite character was Shane. I just took to him very early on in the story.
This story as you can imagine is sad and hard-hitting but it was a book I felt that I had to write because terrorism and Radical Islam are sadly topics we hear about in terrible tragic circumstances far too often in our times and I feel a writer has a duty to write about the things that are happening in the world.
I have put together a collection of six short stories called Ketchup & Other Short Christmas Stories which is now available on Amazon. It’s the first Christmas book I’ve written and I loved putting it together. Now it’s back to writing my next novel 🙂 …
Hope you all enjoy it. 🙂

My novel Defying Gravity is now available on Amazon. Set in London, it follows the love story of Ethan and Alan (although I call them Eth and Al most of the time), two ballroom dancers who form a dance partnership and fall in love along the way.
I loved writing the characters and I learned an awful lot about the ballroom world and the history of ballroom dance while writing the book. It wasn’t something I knew a lot about prior to starting my research for Defying Gravity so that was very interesting.
My novel One Step Closer 2 is now available to purchase on Amazon. Lately it has been brilliant to get a chance to get some books together. The next book might be a little while off as I’m going to concentrate on other writing pursuits for a little while but I’m glad to have got the chance to reach my tenth book and my seventh novel.
It follows on from the first One Step Closer also available on Amazon (a writer has to plug away even though I feel almost bad doing so!) and I really enjoyed writing it. As a reality TV buff from as far back as I can remember I don’t find the One Step series a chore to write. Hope you will all like it too. 🙂
My short story collection All You Need Is Love: Short Story Collection is now available to buy on Amazon. There is six stories in it: a longer short story and five shorter ones. I enjoyed putting and hope that everyone will enjoy reading it too. 🙂

My short story entitled The Oldcastle Murder Club appeared in this week’s Woman’s Way. It is a murder mystery with the setting been where I grew up, Oldcastle. I never had written a story that I got published in Oldcastle so it was nice to get to. I loved writing it and I loved the characters especially Clara, Oisin and Cillian.
The story will be on sale until the next issue comes in on Tuesday. 🙂
