Mother's Day

My first thriller, Mother's Day, was published in hardback by Wildfire Books in March 2023. You can order it here. Or you can wait until March 2024 for the paperback. Or you can order the audiobook, which I recorded myself.

What's the story?

The last thing Anna needs is a baby. Abandoned, adopted and living hand to mouth, she never dreamt of having a real family.

 

But when she meets her birth mother, everything changes - because the same day, she learns she's going to be a mother too.

 

Marlene is eccentric, generous with her considerable fortune and overjoyed to become a grandmother. Anna's living the dream. But is it her dream, or someone else's?

 

Now she will have to decide what she's willing to sacrifice for a real family - her future, her freedom, even her unborn child.

Screen Rights

Mother's Day has been acquired by Calamity Films, who made the Oscar-winning Judy, and still make the very funny Brassic. They want  to turn it into a series for TV.
