My new novel, the Lupo stick.

You may know that,
unlike my other eight books which were published by well-known publishers,
I decided to self-publish the Lupo stick,
in order to take control of my own life.

This included doing my own painting for the book jacket. …

15 March 2018:
Don’t forget to buy my latest novel, the Lupo stick.
A tale of love, mystery and revenge set in Sicily in the 50s, and also in contemporary Oxford.

At its heart is a heroine struck down with Alzheimer’s.

The Lupo stick took nearly 8 years to write, as halfway through writing it,
I myself was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s.

I do hope you enjoy reading my novel.
