The Book of Elis

Two childhood friends are reunited on a family vacation. Elis is self-obsessed, vain, and desperate for attention. Stuck in a Spanish villa alongside him, Ieuan, our diary-writing hero, is drawn into a surprisingly tender romance.


But once the holiday is over, Elis must go back to Brisbane and Ieuan to a rainy village north of Cardiff. Though they remain in touch, Ieuan’s expectations of Elis are low. He is unreliable and immature—soon he’ll tire of the novelty of their relationship and the distance keeping them apart.


Or so he thinks. Because Elis is full of surprises, and Ieuan has to decide how much of his heart he dares to trust him with.

A Very Personal Assistant: Book One

Alistair is a young, self-styled “very personal assistant” who prides himself on his unflappable profession-alism and ability to manage any situation.


When he joins the employ of Rupert, a London-based businessman who lives an intensely private life, he thinks he’s found the perfect posting. But as attraction blossoms, things begin to get complicated. Rupert is wary of letting Alistair get too close, while Alistair is keen to get close in ways that Rupert hasn’t anticipated. And there are the risqué parties for all of Rupert’s “closest friends” for them to negotiate too.


Can Alistair persuade Rupert that he’s just as in-dispensable in private as he is in public? And, if he succeeds, will he be able to accept Rupert’s terms??
