Cover Reveal! Dark Whispers

I’m so excited to reveal the final cover of my new psychological thriller for adults, Dark Whispers, due out in February! *dances happydance amidst the blood splatters*

      She is so still, so relaxed, so ready as she lies on the stainless steel, her breathing slow and steady, her gaze unfocused. There is just time for a small whisper, a soft encouragement of hope, before the darkness slides her entirely into his honing hands. He leans over and breathes into her ear, “I’m going to do something very special for you now. Cut it all away and make it neat. And when you wake up, you’re going to be just perfect.”


Between the anaesthesia and the awakening, are the dark whispers.


When a patient describes an experience of mental torture and sexual mutilation by a gynaecologist at the private hospital where she works, psychologist Megan Wright decides to investigate. Determined to find out the truth and stop the abuse, but bound to silence by the ethics of confidentiality, Megan must enter the dark mind of a dangerously disturbed man.


Praise for Dark Whispers:

“Read this thriller. It’s gripping – so shocking you won’t be able to breathe until you get to the end.” Mike Nicol (Payback, Killer Country, Black Heart, Of Cops and Robbers)

“A chilling exploration of human vulnerability and cruelty, a terrifying and throughly entertaining read.” Amanda Coetzee (Flaming June, Bad Blood, Redemption Song)
