Fiction in progress

Book one

I am currently querying a contemporary mystery/thriller manuscript set in Melbourne. If you are a publisher and interested in considering it, drop me a message.

Two murders, a reluctant private investigator, a flamboyant ex-con, an enigmatic dominatrix and a political scandal that could bring down the government…

Sick of chasing cheating spouses, disillusioned private investigator Jude Lawson is convinced by her side-kick to look into the closed murder case of two queer activists linked to a political scandal that could bring down the government; when the killer turns on her and her friends, she re-discovers her sense purpose as they team up and set a risky trap to catch the killer before he catches them.

Book two

I have commenced work on my second manuscript, the next investigative adventure of Jude Lawson which takes her to a small town in Gippsland.

A dead activist, a private investigator, an old man’s memories, and an environmental scandal that could destroy a small town…

In denial that her past is holding her back, a private investigator goes to a closed small-town community to investigate the death of an environmental activist in a logging coup. She uncovers more than she bargained for and is forced to confront her own long buried grief to uncover the truth about what really happened.
