If you like my reviews...

"There were three legacies in Sally Beck's brief life,
setting in motion a chain of violence no one could have foreseen."

At last it can be told. After publishing more than 500 reviews of crime fiction leading crime fiction, I recently published my own crime novel - the first of a series! Set in London, it features Inspector Colin McDermott, who traces the death of a young woman back to his own Alma Mater, and where, he hopes, he will not have to arrest an old friend and mentor for murder.

Priased by award-winningand best-selling authors in Britain, Canada, the US and Australia, LEGACY has also garnered 4 and 5-star reviews on Amazon.ca. It is available in hardbound, paperback, and eBook form, and is available from FriesenPress, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Chapters, as well as Apple iBookstore, Amazon Kindle, Google Play Store, the Nook Store, and the Kobo Store.
