Yes Norman, it’s very exciting!
My book is BACK on the Kindle after a couple of months hiatus due to…well a giant clusterf*** of hell involving scam publishers…etc. etc. ad infinitum. I’ve had to put the price up for this reason. I took a financial hit, and whilst that wasn’t your fault, I’m hoping to make it back so I can afford editing etc on future books.

I want to draw special attention to the NEW dedication page;

‘This book is dedicated to so many people I could fill another novel with all the names. I have had unending, generous, wonderful support from people I haven’t even met via Facebook, all offering advice, time and energy to help me when there was no gain in it for them.
Lynn Worton and Emily Goodwin have been amazing. I can’t thank them enough, so dedicate this book to them.
Also to Crystal B. C, Wanda H, Tiffany F, Becky J, Candy S, Heaven and Jazmin F, Angel McC, April A, Heather H A, Jay E, Emily W, Trudy P, Ren R, Tami A and Raina G, Laura LaLa B, Rose H, Rose P, Karol W, Maelina T …I could go on for hours! If I have missed your name, I apologise unendingly, but I am blonde! Hopefully I can use the next book to thank you x

To my parents for advertising and support (both emotional and financial)

To my Mars Boys; JL, SL, TM for providing inspiration via music (and my beloved Echelon). The same to The Cure, Fightstar, Charlie Simpson, Akira Yamaoka, Adam Cohen and Josh Groban.

My Flandus boys; Norman Reedus @wwwbigbaldhead and Sean Patrick Flanery @seanflanery (guilty of introducing me to BJJ.) for never failing to put a smile on my face and being two of the most genuinely generous and sweet men on the planet. Love and Hugs x If they try to kill Daryl off, we will riot!

To the Boondock Betties, Dixon’s Vixens, The Reedus Sluts and every other adoring fan girl out there for being incredibly sweet, hilarious and providing fuel for the Reedus addiction.

To all Vegans, Blood Donors (@GiveBloodNHS) and people with their names on the Organ Register – you’re all my heroes.

To my Nana; Mary Pearl Deedigan, the woman I got my tenacity and stubbornness from. You are missed more than you’ll ever know.

For everyone killing themselves to get into print, I think the Psychedelic furs said it best;

‘Swallow all your tears my love and put on your new face. You can never win or lose if you don’t run the race.’ – Love My Way


If I missed you, I’m sorry. I suck. My memory is appalling! There’ll always be the next book…

Love you all x

Who’s who

I got asked recently for my ideal cast if ‘Of Darkness and Light’ was ever made into a film so I have put together my dream cast. Some are obviously a little off as I’ve had to fill in blanks. They’re all wonderful imaginary friends, so no one really looks like them, but I’ve picked actors I love. They can always dye their hair or get contacts ;p


No one will ever fit this role if it’s made in Hollywood. She’s a NORMAL girl with no airs and graces who you could pass on the street and not look twice at. She is a REAL girl, no jabs, tucks, nothing. And she never would either. So I am completely stumped as all actresses are so pretty and made up etc that I can’t see anyone but me as her. Obviously I wrote her when thinking of myself. I’m too old and can’t act so Elora is a blank. If you have any ideas, please let me know as I’d be interested!


This one is easy, but I am torn between casting him as Lucifer or Barachiel as I think he would be perfect for both (obviously with some dye and contacts!) Jackson Rathbone! He was WASTED in Twilight. He is capable of so much more! Plus he has green eyes!

He even has the angelic eyebrow raise down cold. Plus! He can sing! Very important for an Angel, and Lucifer does give us a little of Billy Idol’s Rebel Yell. Jackson would have that down cold. Check out his band ‘100 Monkeys’ the boys have a wicked sense of humour and their music is incredibly eclectic.


My dear Barachiel. Someone who is obsessive about their appearance to the point of almost arrogance. If the lovely Jackson could be cloned, I would have him as Barachiel as well. His build is perfect. But I must stop drooling over the lovely Jackson (who incidentally may or may not have been a physical inspiration for a character in one of my other books….)

So, we need; tall, slim, looks amazing in a suit, is capable of devastating sarcasm and an undercurrent of sweetness and compassion. Must have an obsesseion with espressos too… I’m struggling if I’m honest. My biggest problem is age. All the actors I can think of are too old which is a real shame.

The actor who plays Jamie Lannister in Game of Thrones is pretty damn near perfect apart from the age constraint;

As Jamie he is arrogant, dashing and blonde…


I have two problems with my choice of Raziel. One being age. The other a slight case of Death. My beloved Brandon Lee. If you haven’t see The Crow (and are old enough) rent out a copy. Anyone who doesn’t fall in love with Eric Draven has no heart! It is the ultimate story of love, making Romeo and Juliet look like a case of bad teen angst!

Dark hair, tall, slim, toned from Jeet Kune Do (he’s the son of Bruce Lee) and Grey eyes! He ticks every box.

Thomas was physically based on a guy I knew very briefly. He was a devout Christian and incredibly good. I didn’t know him well enough to find out if he was anything like Thomas, but it was enough for my imagination to run away with.

Actor wise…curly hair, blue eyes, slightly manic….

I can only think of someone who is much too old, by about 20 years. Plus, any excuse to talk about the lovely Tom Ellis. He’s an English actor who is most famous for being in the sitcom Miranda (look it up, it’s hilarious!) and he has brown eyes 😦 But here is a picture of the ridiculously handsome man himself, maybe I could get a time machine?;

Well, all in all, that was an epic failure, but there is some nice eye candy for you all! Can any of you come up with a dream cast list?
