Hardback edition out in July 2008
I am delighted to say that the hardback edition of my current novel KEEPING SECRETS is due for release in July 2008 in the UK (probably in the Fall for US). It is already offered for pre-publication purchase on Amazon UK and Amazon US.
Here is a short blurb about the story:
Teenagers Gillian Finch and Dorothy Prosser are firm friends as well as cousins. For four years they have kept their friendship secret in the face of the bitter feud which has broken out between their respective families over the last will and testament of the family matriarch, Rose Prosser.
Siblings, Henry Prosser and Vera Finch are at loggerheads with each other over the share-out of Rose's estate, and the ownership of the family business; with Vera convinced that Henry has cheated her.
But the friendly association of the girls is not the only secret in the families of the Prossers and the Finches. When Gillian and Dorothy fall head over heels for the same man, Ronnie Knox, Henry's young business partner a fierce clash ensues as to which girl will get him, and their friendship is broken irrevocably.
The repercussions of this quarrel lead to other secrets being exposed. Everyone, it seems, has something to hide - from forbidden friendships to robbery with violence and a secret illegitimate child.
There is conflict and heartache aplenty.
As soon as the book jacket of KEEPING SECRETS has been designed I will post an image.
Meanwhile, I am busy still, working out the plot of my next book.
More news soon
