I can see the colour of your soul. 
Annalise Becker wakes from an eleven month coma with the ability to sense a person’s aura. But why won’t her family tell her what happened? What dark secret is her mother hiding? And why is there a guard outside her hospital room?
Hunted by a psychopathic killer and accused of a crime she can’t remember, she must use her new skill to separate the truth from the lies before it is too late.


How far would you go to save the human race?
In 2017 a virus breaks out, killing women seconds after they give birth. Fifteen years later, the world’s population is on the brink of collapse.
A promising teenage paralympian discovers she is pregnant after being drugged at a friend’s party. When she survives childbirth, she becomes a vital clue in the race to save humanity.
But with billions of dollars at stake for a cure, who can she trust?


The worst crime that ever happens in the picturesque village of Netherwell is the occasional burglary, but that is all about to change.

When Dennis Dean takes his dog for a walk in the woods, he is unaware of the danger lurking within. His wife, Alice, becomes worried when he fails to answer his mobile phone. Her fears are exacerbated after the dog returns home without its master.

Over the course of the next two days, the once peaceful location is rocked by a series of horrific murders and descends into a spiral of escalating violence.

But the ancient evil hiding in the woods may not be the only source of danger. As the residents battle to stay alive, they start to question the motives of those whose duty it is to protect them.


Dark Minds is an anthology of short stories published by Bloodhound Books. My story, A Christmas Killing, is a dark tale set over Christmas Eve and Christmas Day with several twists that will keep you changing your assumptions. All proceeds will go to the charities Hospice UK and Sophie’s Appeal.
