September 1962

In this month 60 years ago, medium-range missiles were shipped to Cuba and if armed, could reach America. Thus began the Cuban Missile Crisis which culminated in the above newspaper headline. The forthcoming novel is set before and during events and will be released in October to coincide when the crisis reached its peak. Details to follow.


This is a scene from the main street in Largs – 1905. However, I visited the vibrant seaside town yesterday to promote my novels Georgina and Awakening. With it being a jubilee holiday and as the latter novel has scenes in the capital’s Royal Mile, appropriate. My thanks to locals for a kind reception.
