|Fat Chance isn’t your usual police procedural, or cat and mouse thriller, but it is true to my style, sense of humour and mental health background. This is what the blurb on the back cover says.
A missing barrister, a severed thumb and fat chance of finding out the truth.
Ella Fitzwilliam’s world is about to spiral out of control. She’s not cut out to be a private investigator. With little or no aptitude for the job, she’s been sent undercover to expose the hidden lives of two men who meet nearly every week at Buxham’s – a private members’ club where portions are large and secrets are held in strictest confidence.
One of those men is Harry Drysdale, a defence barrister, and the other is Marcus Carver, an eminent surgeon with a tarnished past and much to lose. Ella knows he has unhealthy appetites, she’s sure he’s feeding his perverted habits and putting his female patients at risk but she has to prove it.
When Harry Drysdale goes missing, Konrad Neale TV journalist tries to reveal the truth behind the lies, but some of the secrets start to reveal themselves… and they are big.
The official publication date for Fat Chance is on 15th January 2019 and I’m very excited. I have a launch planned. My local county library are very supportive of local authors and I will be running a crime writers workshop on Saturday 2nd February for two hours followed by a meet the author/book signing in the main library. Tickets for the workshop are priced at £2. Yes, for a mere £2 sterling keen writers get the benefit of a fun-filled morning with me and local writer and editor Morgen Bailey. The last one was a hoot! We facilitated a workshop on how to plot a murder. Let me tell you there are some worrying types who live near me! The methods of murder some of the enthusiastic participants came out with could keep me going for years.
Apart from that I will be busy penning a sequel to Fat Chance, appearing on local BBC Three Counties radio, which I do now and again as a panellist on Roberto Perrone’s show, and preparing myself to sit on the crime writers’ panel at the 2019 BeaconLit Festival in the summer. Last year I was sitting in the audience listening to Louise Jensen… this year I’ll be up there with Dave Sivers, Alison Bruce and Leigh Russell. Somebody pinch me! I only hope they don’t find out that I’m just a weird ex-nurse having a mid-life crisis masquerading as an author.
Anyway, that’s enough wittering from me, if you want to know more about the books I write then feel free to take a look at my website where you can find details.
