The launch of my first book – Crocodile on the Carousel

Welcome to my new website, which is still under construction as I write.

I’ll be putting bits and pieces of news, telling you about books I’ve read, projects I’m undertaking and other snippets of information that I hope will interest you on this site on a regular basis, so do check for new posts.

Crocodile on the Carousel

Meantime, my first book, Crocodile on the Carousel, has just been launched. The narrator is an 18 year old woman called Amanda who has been brought up by a radical grandmother. When the grandmother was a young woman herself she bought a monstrous carousel and put it in her garden. Unlike ordinary carousels, which are filled with prettty fairground horses, this one is full of animals that show nature in all its brutality.

Amanda is home educated by Gran, and introduced to wild philosophical ideas and difficult literature from an early age. The problem comes when Amanda leaves home and steps into the outside world, having been taught to reject so much of what society offers.

You can buy it on Amazon.

I am currently working on my second novel.
