Writing is a 24/7 thing sometimes. My mind just never shuts down. 
When I’m immersed in a new story, I kind of forget to sleep. That’s not quite right. I go to bed, close my eyes and then… … Then new scenes and dialogue come to me. I do my best thinking at night when I really should sleep. Sometimes I do get up and open the computer to write down what I have devised, but most times I repeat it very often and hope I’ll remember it in the morning. It actually works, by the way. 
Anyway. Sleep is in short supply when I’m working on a story. And once I do move to the land of dreams, they tend to feature my protagonist and the general pretence of the story. There is no escape for me. 
But it’s all for a good cause. And I can always catch up when the book is finished. Unless… I go straight into the next one. 

Last year I spoke to a number of authors at the Self Publishing Show in London, (back when we were allowed to travel,) about the sleep issue. It seems I am not alone. Creativity takes its tole on us authors. 

My stay-awake project now is the first book in the Devil’s series. It’s new and kind of controversial. I’m not sure when it will be finished, but I’m aiming for the summer. 
In the meantime, two more weeks until Drained is published. It’s a dark- paranormal-horror book and now available as pre-order. Then the second one in that series in April. I also have at least one more book planned for this year in the Prophecy series. 

Another project that needs my attention is the Page Turner awards. This is a way to get the film industry to read my the stories. Not the whole film industry naturally, but it is a start. I’d love to see one of my stories on the big screen. 

What are you reading now? And which book would you like to see as a film or TV series?
I’d love to hear from you. 

Here are some more great books from friends. 



A wolf shifter and a demon have both claimed me as their mate. I’m sure nothing will go wrong with that.

When you hunt supernatural baddies for a living, you’re used to danger. But for once, the danger I’m facing isn’t my fault.
Somebody killed my best friend and set me up to take the fall. Now, I’ve got two days to prove I’m innocent before it’s open season on hunting me down. If that wasn’t bad enough, I’m partnered with a royal enforcer who isn’t what he seems. Sure, he’s sexy as hell, but he’s the most dangerous supernatural I’ve ever encountered. And I literally get paid to hunt the worst of the worst.
I want justice for my friend and I want my name cleared. But the deeper I go, the more dangerous things get. My friend died protecting something of great value and now her burden falls on me.

If I don’t figure this out, it’s not just my life on the line. It’s the start of a supernatural war.

And I’m right in the middle.

A long lost father, a hidden secret…

Mackenzie Murphy goes looking for the father she has never met and discovers a shocking truth – her father was a demon, which makes her a half demon. Hardly suprising with her ability to control the shadows around her, but she soon finds herself drawn into a world she knows nothing about. Caught in the middle of a demon war between three rival families, she is still trying to master her own abilities.

Who can she trust to help her? The mysterious Lucien? Or Taryn, the son of the enemy? With all three families hunting for a talisman that could shift the balance of power, Mackenzie must get to it first and finish what her father started, or die trying.



When the gods turn bad…
…reapers come out to play.
My name’s Autumn, and I was raised by a fanatical cult. I made a deal to be possessed by a god. I was tempted by forbidden whispers of eternal pleasure. Then a lethal but sexy-as-hell god broke me, stealing my magic.

Loki, God of Mischief.

Now, I’m the Infernal: a witch who reaps both gods and demons. I guard the Tree of Life in an English forest, which is stalked by scorching-hot but dangerous monsters.
When a curse binds my greatest enemy, Loki, to me as mate by his shifter spirit, it’s my turn to break a god. I’m seduced, however, by his beautiful mayhem. Then he spins a wild tale, and it turns out that everything I’ve known could be a lie.

Can I trust Loki and my other gorgeous rebel gods and demons? 
When the gods are rebels, the demons are wicked, and the shifters are savage, it’s lucky that I love bad boys…

Detective Liam Grady was stumped.
Never in his long years as a New Orleans Homicide Detective had he encountered a serial killer who literally drained his victims.
The mummified shell of a once beautiful student was the first sign this case was extraordinary. Within days she was joined by a high-class call-girl and a frumpy housewife. All died in the same sadistic manner.
What did they have in common, besides their strange demise?
Things are not as they seem. The victims have dark secrets, and tales of Haitian malignant spirits offer a slim lead. But it mean Liam has to ditch everything he believes in and open his mind to a conjecture that defied logic.
As he struggles with his own demons, Liam joins forces with a pretty student and a Mysterious Vodou witch doctor to stop whatever it is that holds New Orleans in its bloody grasp.

Time is of the essence.
The bodies are piling up.
And now the monster has Liam in its sights.
