My first novel in progress – Jane Bardot – is a mystery story. It’s set in the surroundings of Scarborough, Western Australia, and takes place in the present day and in the rock ‘n’ roll era of 1956.

It begins with a body of an unusual, young woman, abandoned among the tourists on Perth’s iconic Scarborough beach. Red lipstick smudged, full heavy skirts and a pillbox hat, she’s a girl from a different time – and nobody knows who she is.

Except one old man. He claims she’s his wife. A wife who went missing in 1956…

Detective Ryan Price – burnt out transfer and no-time legend – is assigned to the case. He needs to prove to himself and others that he is worthy of this responsibility.

But how can Price even hope to identify the ‘Jane Bardot’ when he starts to believe the unbelievable? 

Find out if the mystery of the woman’s death remains buried in the layers of history. Or if Price will overcome his obsession -with the missing woman from the fifties – and solve the case.

More whoisit than whodunnit, my book explores how today’s reality is constructed from layers of the past and from the stories existing within it. Through a number of different viewpoints and timeframes, we learn things are not always what they seem, and not everything can be explained by logic.
