Shattered Lives Wins a New Honour.

Shattered Lives took over a year in   the writing, and thanks are due to so many people there are too many to name.


However, I’ll do my best… in alphabetical order to be fair.

Benson (Tom) Author of countless books, including my personal favourite, Military Matters, who gave up precious writing time to edit three times.


Brownley (Sharon) author and book cover creator who gave advice for free.

Aspire Book Covers



Bryn (Rebecca) author, proofreader, and cover creator.

Who read Shattered Lives chapter by chapter countless times.


Hayes (Lesley) author and psychoanalyst who checked my killer’s character held together.



Nicholl (John) author and former child protection worker and senior police officer.

The man who convinced me I could, and should, write a thriller, and answered dozens of questions.

Finally, to my friends all over the world, thank you for your good wishes and prayers when Shattered Lives almost ended at the halfway stage – I was in hospital… and wouldn’t the killer have loved that! DCI Croft wouldn’t have caught him. If he did…
