About the Book

Clarice ia a country girl with an open heart, looking forward to life in the big city, with no idea of the hard knocks that await her... but she learns to deal with them all in her way, a secret way.

When she meets Terry, the love of her life, everything falls into place, but the predictions of Odessa, a Fortune teller lurk in the back of her mind. What did she mean by saying 'There is someone else in the shadows. He moves in and out of the distance in a strange way.'

The words haunt Clarice, and in end their meaning becomes unnervingly clear...

About the Author

My Father died when I was six and, as an only child, I was raised by an older widowed Mother. At twelve I was sent Roedean school to board, and there the teachers told me that only work I would ever find would be in Art. Nevertheless, partly due to my Mum's insistence, I went to Medical School and qualified as a doctor at the age of twenty two and practised, mostly as a Generalist till last March. During those years, I developed interests in Personality Disorders and Hypnosis. I have had first hand knowledge of patients with eating disorders and quite recently treated a soldier with PTSD who had served in Iraq. I have had a varied personal life and been married twice, both husbands were doctors, though the second one doubled as an Antique dealer. I have five children and eleven grandchildren, ranging from one to twenty two years old. I love animals and Nature, especially anything to do with the sea. 'I support Compassion in World Farming', am Eco-friendly and, following the Gulf War, I have become a Pacifist. As far as religion is concerned, I am a free thinker, embracing all the good from Christianity plus general spiritualiy. I am interested in the concept of Reincarnation. I live in a chalet bungalow constructed from disused teak railway carriages on the edge of the sea, with my red Burmese cat called Oberon. (king of the faeries) For entertainment I love comedy, reality shows and detective programs. Quiz show stretch my mind and Pilates stretches my body. I paint occasionally, and every Tuesday I cook for my daughter's family, as they work long hours. I also entertain some of my large family, most Summer weekends. Weather permitting, I swim in the 'Beautiful briny' sea.
