Her latest novel is The Second Stage of Grief - a 2016 Kindle Scout Winner - and is the second in the Ngaire Blakes Mystery series. The first Ngaire Blakes novel - The Three Deaths of Magdalene Lynton - was also a Kindle Scout Winner, and published by Kindle Press in March 2016.

She spends far too much time hanging about on Twitter @kathay1973 if you want to connect, and is now tired of referring to herself in the third person so is signing off.
