I’m very excited to announce that my new novel A Woman of Courage will be published in November 2023!

And even more news… I recently signed with HarperCollins for A Woman of Courage and a second book!

Here’s the link to the lovely press release and what I have to say about this new chapter in my writing career.


I’ve taken a different direction with this next novel, following my husband’s family stories. It’s set in Northern England in the 1890s which is the late Victorian era. Here’s the new blurb! 

1890, northern England: Hannah Todd dreams of a future where women have the right to vote. Fresh from her teaching studies in Durham, the university city, she joins her parents in a rural village, brimming with newly found passion and the groundswell towards women’s suffrage unfolding in London. Working tirelessly with her allies to help women and children in the county, Hannah is determined to make the fight for the vote her life’s work, adding her voice to the rising chorus across the nation and hopes of a new world and a new way of thinking.

 But soon she must fight a new, unexpected battle – that of the yearning of her own heart – and discovers that when power is threatened, darkness, brutality and dangerous, closely guarded secrets are never too far from the surface. How far can she go to fight for what’s right?

 From the exciting progressive capital of London to the rural villages of the north, A Woman of Courage rings with the strength and struggles of women everywhere and the choices one woman must make for her voice to be heard.

I’m excited about this new chapter in my writing journey and hope to soon bring you a new look in my cover for A Woman of Courage!
