Life update: In which I reveal my new cover


After the excitement of Tuesday and the publication of The Baby, I'm thrilled to be able to share some more bookish news - the title and cover of my next psychological thriller.

So without further ado, here it is...

I would love to know what you think!

The Photo will be published in ebook, audiobook and paperback on Thursday 11 July, so not too long to wait!

And if you thought The Baby was twisty, you're in for a rollercoaster ride, because I genuinely think The Photo has more twists and turns than all my other thrillers.

It tells the story of wedding photographer Lara, who makes a shocking discovery when she sees someone in the background of one of her photos. Someone who really shouldn't be there...

I thought he was dead. Until I saw him staring back at me…

Ten years have passed since my beloved sister was murdered, leaving behind her five-year-old daughter, Lily.

I’m trying my best to care for Lily and salvage what’s left of our shattered family. I promised to keep her safe after all she’s been through, and after a lot of challenges, I hope she might be starting to lead a normal life again. But then I see a face in a photo I took just yesterday that turns my blood to ice.

I tell myself it can’t be him, but I know in my gut it is. The man my sister married. The man who killed her. The man I thought was dead…

If you've bought The Baby already, I hope you're enjoying it. The feedback so far has been absolutely amazing. If you haven't, you can check it out here:

In other news, last week I signed a second two-book deal with Bookouture, which was another cause for celebration.

I'm super-excited to report that the two books in question will be coming out in October and early 2025.

And if that wasn't enough, I'm a whisker away from finishing the first draft of the first of those books. Which is just as well, as the deadline is next Tuesday...

Safe to say the house is a tip, the lawn needs mowing and the family is being ignored. But I'm looking forward to some downtime once I hand the book to my editor early next week.

This will be my eighth psychological thriller, and once again I can promise you a dark and twisty read that'll have you turning the pages long into the night.

Speaking of which, I need to sign off and get back to that almost-finished first draft.

I hope to see you on the other side!

Happy reading,
