Welcome to my website.

The Thornton Mysteries – a series of 4 cosy murder mysteries set into the late 1920s in Australia – will be published soon by Crimson Cloak Publishing.

Initially, I self-published Book One – The Dragon Sleeps, now soon to be published by Crimson Cloak Publishing as book one of the series.

Here are some comments I have received for The Dragon Sleeps:

“Atmospheric and as good as any Christie”.

“Read perfectly captures the spirit of the age in this tale, transporting us to high society period Melbourne, and the opulent Thornton Estate, in a world of society, art, music and antiques, and of course murder”.

“Refined and elegant, and clearly researched with love and keen attention, we are immersed in a world of parties, dashing and debonair protagonists and a sense of brooding danger, and I loved every minute of it. Definitely up there in my evaluation with any of the ‘classic’ period whodunnits”.

“I recommend this book to Agatha Christie fans and watchers of the tv series like Father Brown, Downton Abbey, and Midsommer Murders”.

“As a huge fan of Agatha Christie and the other masters of crime I went into this book with high expectations and I’m happy to say that those expectations were exceeded!”
