Psychological Thriller - The Girl from the Sea

So, I'm branching out into a new genre. Leaving the security of YA behind me and trying my hand at writing an adult thriller. It was so much fun to write, mainly because I plotted it out so tightly before I began writing - something I've never done before as I usually fly by the seat of my pants.

Set in beautiful Christchurch, Dorset, The Girl from the Sea is about a woman who wakes up on the beach with retrograde amnesia, and her subsequent journey to uncover the truth about what happened to her.

I typed 'The End' last week and it's currently at the editor's being ripped apart polished. The release date is June 9th 2016.

The Girl from the Sea

A chilling suspense story of wounded hearts
and dark secrets.
Washed up on the beach, she can’t remember who she is. She can’t even remember her name.
Turns out, she has a perfect life –
friends and family eager to fill in the blanks.
But why are they lying to her?
What don’t they want her to remember?
When you don't even know who you are,
how do you know who to trust?


  1. Bought It, It was an excellent book.

  2. I just started --and finished-- this book today and all I can say is "Wow!" The family were on their own for dinner tonight. Luckily, cold cereal is filling.

    I read a lot of thrillers and mystery novels and over the years, I have gotten really good at figuring out the "hook" relatively quickly. But I have to say --- you had me going until the climax!!! Great job, very well written, and PLEASE forget those YAs and write more thrillers. ��

    1. Thank you Honora!! really thrilled you enjoyed it. My new thriller is out on Oct 20th ;)

  3. I did a review of it on my blog. Splendid book!! Such a treat to read it, thank you.

    1. Thanks Jane. I really appreciate the review!!
