After a rather slow start to 2024 (I’ve not been too well – I won’t bore you with the details!), the pace has accelerated somewhat over the last two weeks.

Not only is the first of many of the stories I’ve written to help celebrate the 40th anniversary of Robin of Sherwood now available for you to order, but my two newest novels are also at the #preorder stage!


The first, Summer at Sea Glass Cove,  is a classic Jenny Kane number…

Set in, and around Lyme Regis, Dorset, this standalone #romcom was inspired by my love of archaeology, museums, the seaside and chess pieces…

Welcome to Sea Glass Cove!

Marine archaeologist Lauren Sunshine is used to life on the go. Her suitcase is always packed ready to explore the country’s underwater heritage so when a shipwreck is found off the Dorset coast, she is thrilled to be leading the excavation team.

Philippa Silver, ‘Phil’ to the folk of Sea Glass Cove, has devoted her life to the Museum by the Sea. But funding is tight, and despite subletting half of the museum to her best friend Jules’s sea glass shop, she fears for the museum’s future.

Phil hopes the wreck discovery could bring more visitors – but there’s a problem – the museum’s too small to house its treasures. Thankfully, new friend Lauren seems as determined as she is to save the museum.

But, when Phil’s brother Ollie catches Lauren’s eye, she begins to wonder if she has more than one reason to be interested in life at Sea Glass Cove…

Coming 6th June 2024 – Pre-order from Amazon UK and Amazon US


The second novel, Manuscript Mysteries at The Robin Hood Club, is my first #cosycrime story – but not my last!

Inspired by my many adventures as a medieval historian, writer of Robin Hood fiction, and lover of crime fiction generally, I’ve had this story planned in my head for the last three years. It feels wonderful to have finally got it ready to hit the world on 28th April.

Welcome to The Robin Hood Club…

Manuscript Mysteries at the Robin Hood Club

Book One of The Robin Hood Club Series

There’s great excitement when a previously undiscovered Robin Hood ballad manuscript, Robin Hood and the Carter, turns up in the same town as the Robin Hood Club’s latest fan convention.

But the Robin Hood Club’s special guest – Harriet, “Hari”, Danby, writer and creator of the hit TV series, Return to Sherwood – can’t help thinking the discovery is rather too coincidental.

With her best friend, Dot, at her side, Hari finds herself taken out of her quiet writing life and catapulted into a world of enthusiastic fans, actors egos, and jealous fellow authors.

As the Robin Hood Club event gets underway, speculation about the new ballad grows… and then Hari notices that one of the Robin Hood Club’s most devoted followers has gone missing…

Happy preordering,

I’ll leave you in a peace now, and go and crack on with writing the next two books…
