Thanks to the enthusiastic audience and the talented young people who helped me bring the themes of my latest novel(la) to life, the official launch on Halloween night last week was much fun and a great success.


The story revolves around six student friends and a suspicious death, when a body is found in a city centre canal the morning after Halloween. (I’ll tell you more about the Manchester-inspired setting, the story of the cover design, and ‘behind-the-scenes’ in another post soon.)

Mystery, romance and the influence of social media on relationships feature strongly in the story. I was very lucky to have three gifted musicians singing songs which either featured in the novel, or helped to convey the moods of romantic obsession, narcissism, envy and rejection.

Thanks to:

Kayess –

Her first song was ‘I Put A Spell On You’ (She did!)
