What are my novels about?

People often ask me what my novels are about.  Well, they are all different, but one thing many have in common: a female who is in a difficult situation.  (One is about a male in a difficult situation.)  “Existing” is about a girl who is attempting to cope with her father’s suicide by not talking. “Nightmares of Murder” is about a young lady who does not want to go to sleep because of her horrible nightmares in which she has murdered someone.  “The Red Cloak” is about a young woman who finds her doppelgänger and trades places with her – then she can’t get back to her own life.  “No One Like You” is set in the 1970s, about a hearing young woman of Deaf parents who falls in love with a rising rock star.

And Vinnie Pinchey – well, it is all Vinnie Pinchey.

Great Devastation Trilogy

These are the 3 books: After the Great Devastation, The Hidden City, Immediate Search. The first book came to me in a complete dream, even the names of the characters. For the 2nd and 3rd books, I had to use my imagination.

Happy Birthday, Freddie

Have you ever been obsessed with someone? I was so in love with Freddie Mercury, after seeing Queen in concert in 1977, that I wrote a book of poetry for him. I sent him a copy in 1984, and now the new edition is available in paperback. 

Remembering Freddie today, on his 70th birthday.
