I have been writing furiously for twelve years and have five novels and four collections of short fiction published on Amazon Kindle; my collections and three of my novels are also available as paperbacks. My novel ‘At The Seaside Nobody Hears You Scream’ was recently published as an e-book and paperback. I also enjoy writing blogs and book reviews.

In the summer of 2013 Annette Bethany Brown went missing without trace. Her boyfriend Toby Channing was the last person to see her, the only person who knew where she had spent the previous days.

In February 2014 Tobias Elliot Channing, private investigator, was still roaming the country, a camper van detective specialising in missing persons; hoping to discover why so many people go missing. He was visiting every place that had a connection with Anna, there were still no clues to her disappearance.

A few opening scenes from the book!

  1. Thanks for stopping by. Loved your most recent piece about the Music Notes. My parents didn’t have classical music at home put my mom looked for it on TV or in the park. I was able to play the cello in my school’s orchestra. I love getting lost in it, although the William Tell Overture still says “Lone Ranger” to me. LOL Your books sound interesting will look you up in the other sites. All the best.

    1. Thanks very much, so glad it resonated with you. I’m impressed you got into the school orchestra; I tried a few instruments at school and college without success – that’s for future blogs!


  2. Hi, Janet—

    I just stopped by to thank you for liking a comment I made on Matthew Richardson’s blog, prompted by his review of a large Vietnam book. I admire how prolific you are and will be back to further explore your work.
