Disappearing wasn’t going to be enough…they needed a plan…some answers…and a safe place where they couldn’t be found…and time to figure out what to do next….and why their pursuers are interested in Harper’s father. With only moments to spare, Jackson Riley knows that taking the elevators to the ground floor of the hotel isn’t their optimal escape route. But as always he’s prepared.

London,1981. As race riots erupt, Prince Charles and Lady Diana prepare to marry, & New Romantics dance, an identity-shifting serial killer is operating in plain sight. But no one has realised except Detective Inspector Anna Leeding, who has secrets of her own. Rated 4.4 on Amazon / 4.21 on Goodreads, “Don’t You Want Me?” is an exciting, atmospheric retro-crime novel for fans of twists, thrillers, history, music, and popular culture. Amid Britain’s cultural and social upheaval of 1981, D.I. Anna Leeding suspects apparent accidents and suicides could be subtle acts of revenge, and strange blue charcoal messages may be the key to something bigger and deadlier. But in this cat-and-mouse story of vengeance, no one is quite what they seem, and in 1981, when the New Romantics played with image, first appearances can be deceptive. Who is carrying out the murders? How and why are they choosing their victims? And just how close is Leeding to the perpetrator?
Imagine if Norman Rockwell stared into the void and painted the seething abominations, dark vistas, and unspeakable madness he found there. Included among these demented portraits, you may find a terminally ill medium who is tormented by spirits on his death bed, two boys who discover a sinister secret under the streets of Leavenworth, a whaling ship sailing 2,500 miles to port without its crew, a lovesick poet entangled with a small-town seer, and a roots music historian who discovers a song not intended for human ears. SMALL BITES exist at the fulcrum of the idyllic and the dreadful. It invokes the pleasant and mundane memories of the not-so-distant past and violently interrupts them with immediate and visceral terror. These 13 offerings beat from the corroded heart of Americana and prey upon the innocence of our cherished nostalgia. More than a horror anthology, this is a canvas oozing with living paint, pigments selected from our collective nightmares, and imprisoned within these fragile pages.
