Book 1
A Lapse of Sanity
a ghost story
Life will never be the same for Chloe Hetherington following a life changing accident. Rowan Cottage in picturesque Willows Dip was a dream home but dreams become nightmares in moments and changes have to be adapted to.
In an effort to alleviate her worries she takes a walk and during that walk stumbles upon a derelict cottage. Curiosity gets the better of her and finding the door open she enters and encounters the ghost of its occupant. That sets in motion a quest to find out more about the old lady and she visits a spiritualist church.
Her next walk, this time in the woods backing onto her cottage, is equally if differently disturbing. The woods are home to the enigmatic Nathaniel O'Keefe, a part Romany gypsy, and their meeting upsets everything that Chloe holds dear.
Outside forces intrude upon her life and she has choices to make, but will they be the right ones, and what effect will they have on hers and her family's lives?

In addition to Amazon the paperback is also available to order from Waterstones, Barnes and Noble and other booksellers, ISBN 9781781763650
