... a wonderful book!

The noise and angst of millennium London is set against lyrical descriptions of Scotland's timeless grandeur. Full of action, surprises, long-buried secrets, written with terrific zest and a real feel for the period.

I felt I was on Becca's journey with her, dotted with the healing gifts of food which meant love, friendship and hope....This book feels like it is just the beginning of the story - to be told of the big world that she is going to be part of - please keep them coming.

The Ghost Goose this is an achingly beautiful tale - wonderfully told; its setting, time, characters and language coming together, seemingly, so effortlessly. The Ghost Goose won my heart.

Really inspiring stuff... you have a real talent for setting the scene and enveloping the reader so they feel like a fly on the wall. The Round Table and JoJo's Eyes are amazing!

Sue Barnard - novelist, editor & award-winning poet

These [stories] are really good. The plots are ingenious, and the writing is of a very high standard. I thought the twist in Inspect & Verify was brilliant. A perfect example of “Be careful what you wish for.”

[The collection is] very captivatng.

David James - porcelain & pottery expert
The pace and timing of A Hard Place were perfect. Seeing the picture at the end ... gosh!

Carol Allen - Journalist, writer/director/producer
Inspect & Verify is original and darkly chilling. The Round Table is neat and touching with a very engaging central character. While complete in itself, it leaves one wanting more.
