I’m delighted to reveal the cover of The Stepsister, my emotional thriller set between Guernsey and Holland.
About the Book Cover
As with all my book covers I designed it myself, learning the hard way through trial and error what works and what doesn’t.
There’s a strong element of art in The Stepsister. Victoria, the main character is a talented artist working as a children’s book illustrator. Hence the striking watercolour background pierced down the centre with an artist’s interpretation of one of the tall and narrow iconic Dutch houses.
I once read that popular books are ‘the same but different’. So, as with the killer thriller genre this cover has a bright, bold script but the arty background is my idea. I hope you like it?
About the Book
You could say that The Stepsister took nearly forty years to write as that’s the last time I visited The Netherlands and the first time I saw the painting that inspired the book.
This is a thriller with a wicked twist. But a thriller with a difference. But rather than spoil the story I’ve included the blurb below.
It’s available on pre-order for 99p here. The book will officially launch on October 29th.

She should never have let her go… That was Victoria’s first mistake.
When a stranger leaves stepsisters, Victoria and Ness, a half-share in a house in Holland, they think it must be a mistake.
But there’s no mistake when Ness goes missing.
Desperate for the truth, Victoria travels from Guernsey to Holland to find out what’s happened. Has Ness, as her texts show, embarked on a whirlwind romance? Has someone abducted her or even worse?
What she doesn’t know is there’s someone watching, and that person wants her dead.
Can Victoria find out the truth before it’s too late?
