I hope everyone is well? During these (continued) tough times that we all face. My only real distraction right now from the news, and reality, are reading and writing. I’ve just finished reading a wonderful book of poetry, I’m now about to work on the next one of my babies and write a few words.
Before I get cracking, I’d love to sharing with you, and the world, the first three of my Unsolved Mysteries series! I did a over share on FB a few weeks back, here’s the blurbs with them. Yeah! Each one is a stand-alone story. ‘The Note’, ‘The Red Light Girls’ and ‘Till Death Do Us part’.
They should go up on pre-sale pretty soon, some time after Sacrifices my historical romantic suspense, which will be released on the 30th September. I’m waiting for the world from my publisher about the mysteries. Me, I’m just happy to have knocked out a few more projects, and be inspired during this pandemic.
Book #1 The Note:
The Note is book one of the Unsolved Mysteries series of stand-alone, novella length, mystery, and psychological thriller stories. Set in different locations around the world.
Tony Patel, one of London’s wealthy entrepreneurs was diagnosed with cancer, and became estranged from his wife of thirty years Manisha. During their separation, his mistress Chelsea Jackson, became Tony’s carer while his cancer progressed. Unexpectedly Tony’s mutilated body is found dumped in a park. Detective Dunne and his partner McDonald investigated his murder. Everyone had a motive especially when money was on the table, and his wife Manisha, and their adult children were cut out of his will then replaced by his mistress Chelsea. Was this an act of kindness from Tony, toward his carer and mistress? Or was there foul play and pressure to change his will by Chelsea? What about his murderer? The case was left unsolved, with lack of evidence.
Tony’s unsolved murder file is reopened when Detective Dunne receives a mystery note, three months later. For the second time once more mystery notes are sent by an anonymous tip off, Detective Dunne and McDonald re-investigate and piece together the mystery that surrounded the entrepreneur’s death, and what led him to change his Last Will in Testament.
The note is a fast paced crime thriller, with a touch of mystery novella story. Dunne and McDonald have only one more chance to close this case and find Tony’s murderer, with the help of the mystery notes.
Book #2 The Red Light Girls
The Red Light Girls is book two of the Unsolved Mysteries series of stand-alone, novella length, mystery, and psychological thriller stories. Set in different locations around the world.

Madeline Sloane a ballsy journalist for one of London’s tabloid papers is bored with her job and surroundings, she finds herself in Amsterdam working for the Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf. Her new job becomes her obsession and determination to help Detective Janssen close in on the person responsible for fates of the Red Light Girls. She reports on the city’s events, and forms a plan of action of her own once her intuition guides her to a suspect.

The Red Light girls is a novella length mystery, with a strong headed female on a mission to cover areas that the local police have failed to, and close an unsolved mystery.
Book #3 Till Death Do Us Part
What happens when a convicted murderer confesses to a crime committed, and unsolved mystery from almost thirty years ago, but something seems ‘off’ about him, the crime, and the confession? Would you believe them? ‘Till Death Do Us Part’ is book #3 of the Unsolved Mysteries Series!
I’m currently working up my final draft with my publisher for blurb for this one, so I won’t say too much LOL. But the paragraph above that’s what’s in store!
