Book Funnel are featuring 9 books with an ‘Addictions’ theme. My own book ‘Mind Games’ is partly based on true life events and focuses on the effect that an addiction to pornography has on a previously happy marriage. It will be just $0.99/£0.99 until the end of November.
‘Mind Games’ was my debut novel, and it has been re-written a couple of times and been given a new title. I was rather thrilled back in 2013 that the Susijn Agency once debated as to whether to represent me with this book as well.
Frances Andrews is sick of her husband Martin’s addiction to pornography, and has lost her trust in him. Martin views porn as a harmless pastime, but when Frances threatens to leave, he is distraught and begs her to go with him for marriage guidance therapy. Counsellor Rhona suggests they take a holiday in the first instance, and start talking to one another again. Frances just wants out of the marriage, but finally agrees to go on a cruise…as long as they have separate cabins. Told from both Frances and Martin’s perspectives, Mind Games shines a light on the effect that an addiction to pornography can have on a previously happy marriage.
Here’s a 5 star review from Ellen Best:
5.0 out of 5 stars A story of A troubled marriage. Well written. Deserving to be read

I liked the pace of this read. The relationships felt authentic. An old relationship conflict delivered with a modern day twist.
