My First 5* Review for A Shadow in the Past!

Cover by Aidana WillowRaven

I’m so excited right now. I’ve got my first 5* review! I admit that from the time my book was a real “physical” thing and out in the world, I didn’t know if people would like it or not. As a matter of fact, I was terrified people would hate it. And admittedly there will be people out there who won’t.

You can read my 5* review at goodreads and a slightly more condensed version over at

Will these reviews entice you buy A Shadow in the Past? I certainly hope so. If you’re feeling so inclined to purchase your own copy, you can buy it from the following links:

My character, Sarah Shand, now has her own blog!

In a moment of, shall we say lunacy, I set up a blog for my main character in A Shadow in the Past, Sarah Shand. Hopefully, she’ll behave herself and not let out any spoilers from my current novel, or ideas that I have percolating for subsequent works.

Sarah has been a delight to work with and I’m looking forward to doing it again. She blogs at Sarah’s Place. I know, not the most creative blog name but I’m sure if the two of us put our heads together we’ll come up with a cracker.

And if you have any brilliant ideas for a blog title for her, leave a comment here or over at her blog.
