Set in rural Wiltshire, and the first in a series starring Detective Bernadette ‘Bernie’ Noel, LAST SEEN opens with the abduction of a young girl, Molly, from a park. What follows is the nailbiting race to find her alive – while it soon becomes clear that the local community see this as punishment for a terrible wrong committed in the past. Her second novel, BROKEN GIRLS, also featuring Bernie Noel, was published by Bookouture at the end of July 2021. Her most recent novel, LEFT FOR DEAD, the third to feature Bernie Noel, was published by Bookouture in January 2022.
