Benny 'the fence' handed over the money for the diamonds, no questions asked. He didn't know her name, didn't want to. The sulky blonde had been using him for years and so far things had worked just fine...

Secrets, lies, evasion, and snatched moments of happiness. One guitarist, two girls, and an epic love triangle. Only One Woman the ultimate St. Valentine's Day read.

I must have a criminal mind.
Writing about Christmas in a 'mince pie and Christmas pudding' way, isn't my style. My mind works strangely. I'd be tempted to poison the pies and pudding before feeding them to the victims in my stories. The only times Christmas appears in anything I write it has been to juxtapose the cosy atmosphere of the season of goodwill, with something horrible about to happen.

I am still in lock-down, and I have only been out to offer 90th birthday greetings to my mother last week from her front doorstep. Her house was festooned with bouquets of flowers, birthday cards, and gifts. Apparently, she’d had so many phone calls she had not had a chance to sit down to eat or have a coffee since […]

On December 20th 2019, I was interviewed live on air for ONE hour and 20 mins by the lovely and outrageous Brian Hammer Jackson - he has an internet radio show in the USA which has a global reach of 15-20 million per broadcast so it was quite daunting, to say the least, but it was so much fun.
I am delighted to welcome the lovely Jane Risdon to my blog, with her ‘Opening Lines’ from Only One Woman. Written in tandem with Christina Jones, Jane is sharing the first 500 words from her part of the story, Renza’s Diary. Over to you Jane… It is 1968 and Renza is about to go to Germany with her family, joining her father who is working there with the MoD. She’s facing 3 years overseas and isn’t happy. Scott and his band, Narnia’s Children, move next door to her. They are over from the Channel Islands to tour and record their first single. It is love at first sight but it is short-lived. Vowing undying love and secretly becoming engaged, Renza leaves for Germany within weeks, Scott believes the band will be in Germany soon and they can meet up. Renza promises to come back to England as often as she can. Narnia’s Children tour up and down the country and one night they take the stage at St. Barnaby’s Hall where he sets eyes on Stella who has only days to live, she is convinced. Set in the UK music scene of the late 1960’s Only One Woman is sheer nostalgia: the music, fashions, the changing society of the Swinging Sixties, the Cold War, and so much more – a love triangle set in Europe, the Mediterranean, Jersey and England in the grooviest decade of the 20th century by Christina Jones […]
