GIVE IN TO THE FEELING

A 1920s Novella

Chicago 1924

When Susie dances with Blood in Simon’s speakeasy, she discovers there’s a new world beyond the things she owns and the things she’s allowed to do. Blood values her thoughts, her feelings and offers his respect for her as a person.
So different from the luxury Simon has offered her. The exciting club nights and the new freedom of dressing and doing as she pleases.

But Susie’s still Simon’s woman, and he won’t allow her to forget it.

Soon, Susie there might be more than two men fighting over her. As Blood and Simon confront each other, Susie sees the spirit world filter into her world and crack the reality she knows. And when she looks through the shards of the illusion she’s been living, Susie realises making a choice between the two will be more difficult than she has ever imagined.

 

BONE WHITE

She placed the little parcel on the bar bench and unwrapped it, the thin paper whispering in the bright silence of the boudoir. Inside, was a comb made of bone.

Her stepdaughter’s birthday was approaching and she had found the perfect gift for her

GHOST TRILOGY

Ghost Trilogy is a ghost story, set in Chicago Black Belt, happening from early September 1926 to late April 1927.

The story is mostly set inside the Old Shelter, a speakeasy hidden in a building which has been haunted by a ghost for almost one hundred years.
Adam Brailsfield owns the club… and the ghost. The ghost has been connected to his family for a few generations and he fears it’s turning him mad as – rumour has it – it did to his grandfather.
Sinéad O’Flanagan was entrusted with a coin by a friend, so she could give that coin to a niece of the giver. But the coin seems to drag her again and again to the Old Shelter.
Michael and Blood meet Sinéad on a night out and they all end up at the Old Shelter. Blood and Michael have a strong bond with the worlds of spirits. They realise the ghost is not merely haunting the place, it seeks revenge over the Brailsfields, and the power of that curse is set deep inside Sinéad’s coin. If they let themselves be involved with the ghost, the curse might bend their life too – but they may also be able to break it.

The trilogy is complete, although the three novels are at different stages of revision. I’m currently working at the final revision of the first book.

BONES OF THE TITANS

Still at a very early stage of planning, Bones of the Titans will be set in Weimar Berlin, 1924. It will include an ancient curse, a few murders and lots of characters with lots of secrets.

THE FROZEN MAZE

Set in Germany, in 1924, this is a story dealing with growing as a person, coping with loss and finding a new way in life. 
I'm currently writing a short story of it, but I'll probably expand it in a novella.
