To Run Before the Sea

(Rosie Winterbourne Book 1)


How do you cope when your darkest, most frightening fantasies become indistinguishable from reality? Worse still, when you're part of the crew of a Royal Naval destroyer.

This disturbing condition is only one of the many challenges facing Leading Seaman Winterbourne as her life spins out of control. But Rosie is not the kind of girl who surrenders to illness and misfortune.


Abandoned by the navy and everyone she cares about, Rosie finds solace in the renovation of her father's old yacht. What starts as a welcome distraction, however, soon becomes a driven obsession, leading to life-changing events and astonishing discoveries about herself and her past. 


A potent mix of adventure and self-renewal, this is the story of a young woman's struggle with mental illness. Above all, it is a story of conquest: the conquest of psychosis, of loneliness, and of fear. And it is a story of survival - alone - in the wild vastness of the Atlantic Ocean.


Published August 2020 - available in Kindle (£2.99)  & Paperback (£11.99) Editions.

The Travel Agent

(Rosie Winterbourne Book 2)


Her battle with psychosis won, we now join our plucky survivor as she embarks on a new adventure and a new career. After completing her long-interrupted Degree Course, Rosie meets Michael, an enigmatic Irishman with a disturbing secret. While delving ever-deeper into Michael's activities, Rosie finds herself sucked into the orbit of Firegate. Recruited and trained by the secretive agency, she quickly adapts, both physically and mentally, to her role. Her first mission is to investigate rumours of terrorist insurgency into Britain via the overseas territory of Gibraltar. Working undercover - a lone-yachtswoman visiting the Rock on her boat, Pasha – Rosie makes an astonishing discovery that puts her life in grave danger.
