Dear Reader,

I came up with the idea for No Turning Back during one sleep-deprived day a few weeks after having my little girl. The idea just came out of nowhere as I walked through a leafy park here in the UK with her. A man approached, a perfectly normal looking man, and I suddenly thought: ‘what would I do if he attacked us?’

In No Turning Back, that’s the terrifying situation Anna finds herself in when she’s attacked by a crazed teenager. She does what we all say we would: fight back to save her child. But then the schoolboy dies from his injuries. What follows turns her world upside down and leads her directly into the path of a serial killer.

I really hope you enjoy No Turning Back! Email for a chance to win 1 of 5 galleys.

Take care,

I’m so excited to be giving away 5 e-copies! Email me at for a chance to win!
