I am thrilled to announce the upcoming release of my new novel, “Behind the Stars,” a psychological thriller that delves into the twisted world of obsession, betrayal, and the power of resilience in the face of adversity.

As many of you know, my journey to this point has been filled with both triumphs and challenges.

The success of my debut novel was a dream come true, and I couldn’t wait to share more of my stories with you…but…my latest book was ‘rewarded’ with a review that truly shocked me. At first, I slammed the computer down, told my family I wasn’t going to write anymore, ranted to my Rosette team and shed a tear even until I realised with my supporter’s help and encouragement that in fact – it doesn’t matter! I know I can’t please everyone with my books but when it gets so harsh like that reviewer it’s hard to swallow.

I have used this review as inspiration!

“Behind the Stars” is a fictionalised account of my experience, a story that takes the raw emotions and psychological turmoil and weaves them into a gripping, suspenseful tale of one woman’s fight to reclaim her dream of being an author.

The novel follows the story of Tara, a rising star in the literary world whose dream turns into a nightmare when she becomes the target of a vengeful online stalker. As she struggles to uncover the identity of her tormenter and put an end to their vicious campaign, she is forced to confront the dark secrets of her past and the unresolved traumas that have haunted her for years.

Through Tara’s journey, “Behind the Stars” explores themes of power, control, and the insidious nature of abuse, both online and off. It is a story of survival, of the incredible resilience of the human spirit, and of the transformative power of speaking one’s truth in the face of those who would seek to silence and destroy.

Writing this novel has been a deeply personal and cathartic experience for me, a way of processing my trauma and shining a light on the experiences of so many writers who have faced similar struggles. I hope that “Behind the Stars” will resonate with readers, and that it will spark important conversations and inspire any aspiring authors.

I am so grateful for the love and support of my readers, my friends, and my family throughout this journey. Your encouragement and belief in me have been a constant source of strength and inspiration, and I cannot wait to share this new chapter of my literary journey with all of you.

I’m not yet sure when “Behind the Stars” will be released but the writing stage is nearly finished so it shouldn’t be too long. It will be available for pre-order on Amazon and I will send info in my newsletter and on here when it’s ready.

I will be embarking on a virtual book tour to promote the novel, with dates to be announced soon on my website and social media channels. If you’d like to join and get a free advance copy, let me know.

Thank you, as always, for your support and your passion for the written word.

I hope that “Behind the Stars” will captivate, inspire, and resonate with you, and I look forward to continuing this incredible journey together.
