“When a book allows me to become one of the characters....aahhhh, perfection!”
Louisa (on her Goodreads 5* “It was amazing” review)”

“Oh, this is such a pleasure to read, right up to the thrilling end, through tense moments and laughter…”
Allison Kohn (in her Amazon 5* review)

The inspiration for Hide in Time came in the form of a phrase "Past and Future" which first hit me in St Paul's Cathedral, London. The clock struck midnight at the start of a new year and, encouraged to reflect on the past and plan for the future, I did just that. Hide in Time was born.

A new writer, like me, is usually given advice to "write about what you know". So I did. At the time, I was the owner of an introduction agency and loved my job but I also love writing. Until Hide in Time was almost finished, I combined both, keeping my scribbling secret.

The book opens briefly in 1814 when Laura Yager storms off (in the ladylike fashion of the day) and decides to start a new life in America. Her journey, in terms of distance, isn't far: in terms of years, she travels a very long way: in terms of understanding, she is, like many of us, in danger of repeating the same old mistakes of the past.

There are two heroines, so if you don't like one, you may like the other. There are also two heroes. I'd be very pleased if you tell me the characters you like best.

For those of you who know the county of Kent, England, you may recognize some of the places from their description if not from their names. Torwell Bridge, for instance, is really Tunbridge Wells. And do be careful if you find the entrance to the caves, they really do exist and so does the rock-fall. Only venture along the tunnels if you also want to get lost in Time.

Some have said Hide in Time is a real page-turner and they can't wait to find out what happens. But if you like to read slowly and take time to ponder, then I shall have achieved more than I dreamed I could.
