In 2014, after many years of writing academic books and papers for traditional publishers, I started my career as an independent author with a series of short mystery-cum-romance novels set between England and New Zealand.  The interlinked stories of Carmen’s Roses, Blue Moon for Bombers, and The Windflower Vibration are available separately or in a combined volume Three Novellas. From an Amazon review of Carmen’s Roses:

Interwoven tale of love, mystery and more than a touch of the paranormal. Interesting characters too, reminds me of a gothic novel. 

I went on to publish three longer novels, based on manuscripts written while I was working as a doctor in England during the 1980s. Overdose is set in an old mental asylum, Fatal Feverfew in a healing retreat and Unfaithful unto Death in rural general practice. They give a historically accurate, if mildly satirical, picture of medical practice and social attitudes very different from those of today. From an Amazon review of Overdose:

Powerful evocation of psychiatric practice 30-40 years ago, parts of which are truly shocking. Story that carries you along – I did not want to put it down until I knew what had happened. Great read with serious thought-provoking aspects and a character to hate with a clear conscience.
