My second novel "For Good" will be published by Black Rose Writing in March 2017. Here's the blurb:

"14 year old Ronnie, fostered to the Tate family, has run away from home. For 18 year old Georgia Tate, it’s almost the last straw: her parents have separated, her ex is going out with “Suz”, and she’s dropped out of Uni. Then on a night when her father forgets to collect her from work, an older ‘family friend’ picks her up…

For Good is one young woman’s struggle to come of age in the shadow of a problematic attachment, family breakdown and a single, shocking act of abuse. It’s a story of homelessness and addiction, of family deception and loyalty. It's about neglect - the domestic tragedy happening quietly and commonly in our cities and suburbs - but not, in the end, without resolution or hope ‘for good’. "
