Inside the mind of a writer




“Hi, you in crowded, stressed old London from me in the peaceful, perfect Cotswolds. Massive change of plan. I’m in love. Craig’s gorgeous, sexy, intelligent. Paradise here. Staying forever.”

Juliet, concerned that her younger sister has fallen in love with the charismatic Craig, leader of the Wheel of Love, sets off for the Cotswolds to investigate.

She arrives at Craig’s community hoping to rescue Zoe. But  intrigues, liaisons and relationships flare and flourish or fizzle out quickly within this close circle, and despite her reservations, Juliet is drawn into the Wheel of Love… with completely unforeseen consequences.

It’s a dream come true for Zoe when she and her new husband, unconventional priest Theo, move to the Cotswolds. But fearsome dreams about a young girl running for her life disturb Zoe; and she can’t shake off the idea that a child’s life is in danger… and so is hers.

When two unexpected guests arrive, Zoe can’t abandon her feelings of unease, and a series of disturbing events unfold.

Completely unprepared for the terror she is about to face, Zoe will need more than the loyalty and strength of her friends to survive the frightening paranormal forces that are about to be unleashed against her.
