Yes, it’s that time of the year again when everyone can vote for ReadFree.ly’s 50 Best Indie Books of 2016 (up until 3rd June). I was lucky enough to be at #49 last year with ‘The Daughter-in-law Syndrome’. To qualify this year, books must have been published after 1st June 2015.

If you’ve read any of my latest books and enjoyed them, please consider casting a vote. They all come under ReadFree.ly’s ‘Other’ genre. If they’re now propping up a wonky table and you can’t remember what they’re about, I’ve given a little prompt below:
Teacher Alistair Veale is just coasting along in his 20 year marriage to Ann. His two sons Tom and Jake are growing up fast and have their own interests, but he still enjoys a close relationship with 13-year-old daughter Jessie, his ‘Princess’.
When Alistair takes 14 children from his tutor group on a week-long school trip to the Isle of Wight, a new Science teacher, Carly Jessop, goes along to keep an eye on the 6 girls. Alistair notices a growing attraction between himself and Carly, which cannot be ignored.
However, when Alistair and Carly begin an affair the consequences are horrific and far-reaching, threatening not only Alistair’s livelihood, but also his peace of mind and the relationship he has with his own three children.
When you know you have met the love of your life, the last thing you expect is for your sister to lure him away. Clare Ronson is faced with this scenario when her sister Isabel marries singer and guitarist Ross Tyler. To compound Clare’s jealousy and bitterness, Ross hits the big time and becomes a wealthy tax exile, relocating to France with his family. Clare cannot bring herself to speak to Isabel or Ross for the next 30 years. However, when tragedy occurs in 2002 causing Ross to arrive back in England at Clare’s doorstep, Clare must try to put the past behind her for her sister’s sake.

Sorry about your wonky table…..
