News & Reviews
Stranger In My Heart launched back in June 2018, so I thought I would let you faithful supporters know how things have been going since then. It would really help me if you could write a review of the book on Amazon - I have 26 customer reviews so far and I hope to reach 30+ with your help. There has been quite a lot of publicity for the book, both in the UK and internationally:

I am also in discussion with a TV production company in LA who want to make the book into a TV series, so watch this space!
I hope you have had a great summer and are now settling into 'the season of mellow fruitfulness' - well it is in our garden! I've been making chutney, jam, ice cream and eating squash at every meal. Blackberry and apple crumble tomorrow!
