Girl with Secrets; a coming of age war story and family saga full of romance, mystery and danger in London’s East End


I have never written a novel through a child’s eyes, but Daisy Purbright was conceived long ago - the minute I made a connection with Scout Finch, Harper Lee's engaging central child character from her international bestseller, To Kill a Mockingbird. However, it took time and experience before Daisy was written into life. February 23rd sees the publication of Girl with Secrets, lead actor, a 9-year-old precocious tomboy, who like Scout, adores her father and believes the world was made just for her. But life takes over and the perilous nature of world events leaves an indelible mark on Daisy and her family. Just as life does on all of us. Just as it does for the Scouts of this world, which is why I added an epigraph to this book. 17-year-old Patsie Duggan and his 13-year old sister Maureen, together with a team of other children and teenagers, saved many lives and lost some of their own during 1940/41 as they rescued the trapped and injured of London’s devastated East End. Better known as the “Dead End Kids” they truly were the unsung heroes of the London blitz. Just follow the link below if you’d like to know more about Patsie and his friends. And if you read my book, Girl with Secrets, you’ll know where the inspiration for my characters come from; a small town in Alabama USA and the inferno of London’s burning buildings during World War 2.

Remembrance Day

  Today is 11th November. 102 years ago WWI ended on this day. The defining era of WWI is a fascination to me. I have researched this turbulent time for years and I'm always learning new things about it. One of my bucket list goals was to visit the battlefields of Belgium. Walking amongst the graves, the old trenches, visiting the water-filled bomb craters, going to museums, and spending time in beautiful Ypres was inspiring. How could you not be moved? My own ancestors fought and died in WWI. I had five great+ uncles all brothers from one family fight. Two died - Arthur and Alfred Ellis. They were the inspiration behind the Jackson brothers in my book The Woman from Beaumont Farm. My Ellis uncles live on in those pages.

The few books I've written set in WWI are homage to all those wonderful Allied men and women who served their countries for our freedom.
We must never forget their sacrifices. They are true heroes.
