Fractured Series FAQ’s:

Should The Fractured Series be read in order?

Yes. Books 1 – 3 (including 2.5) should be read in order as they are a continuing story. Book 4 can be read as a standalone, and while it isn’t essential, it is advisable to read the original trilogy due to the story ARC and the character relationships.

Are the books based on real life events?

No, they are a work of fiction. However, many aspects of the story are personal to me, and I have elaborated these for creative purposes.

Are you writing any more in the series?

Yes. I am currently working on two separate novels featuring the characters of Jeremy and Julia. I am also tinkering with some plot lines for a new standalone novel, completely unrelated to the series.

When will they be available?

These are currently a work in progress due to other demands/restraints upon my time. I shall provide periodical updates as they are further advanced.

In the future, if you re-release the books with bonus scenes, additional content etc, will I be required to buy a further copy?

No. If I do revise the books to include any previously unpublished material, I will add the new content to the website and I will also supply a copy for your chosen e-reader upon request. I appreciate not everyone wants to read bonus material on a website – I’m one of them! I also feel it is unfair to expect readers to constantly dip into their pockets and buy new ‘exclusive’ books due to additional content being added. It is a duplicitous practice.

Are your books available in paperback?

Yes. They are available to purchase exclusively through Amazon. Please note, due to the novel size and printing costs, no discounts or offers are available on the paperbacks.

Will the series ever be made into a TV series or a movie?

I am often asked this, and all I can say is anything can happen in the future! Like most writers, I am open to all new opportunities.

Are there any playlists associated with the novels? 

Any future playlists for the novels will be available to view on the blog.

My novels are currently exclusive to Amazon in both ebook and paperback formats.

Can I borrow your ebooks from an e-library?

I don’t have an e-reader and have no inclination to buy one in the future. How can I read your books?

Please note any additional content I may release in the future will require you to have installed the app if you do not wish to read on the website.

Elle FAQ’s:

Where are you based?

I live in the UK, in beautiful Yorkshire.

Tell us more about you?

I’m thirty-something, and I still work full-time in law. I am a complete foodie and am willing to try (within reason) most things (sorry, but no insects, crispy critters, scorpions, spiders or snakes!). My favourite cuisine is anything from the Mediterranean countries. I love a good chilled bottle of New Zealand Marlborough wine or a rum and coke. Oh, and you may have garnered from the novels that I am a huge lover of cheesecake!

What are your pastimes outside of writing?

I adore the great outdoors. Whether it be puttering around my garden, strolling through the local park or hiking the hills of England, Scotland or Wales. I feel most at peace with myself when I’m outside. That said, I can be a real home hermit, too. Give me a warm, cosy room, my laptop and copious amounts of hot chocolate (or wine…) and you will not see me for hours!

I also love to travel, either here in the UK or the world. You won’t find me relaxing on the beach; I’m more at home exploring the city streets, or putting on my muddy boots and a waterproof jacket. If I can walk it, climb it or scramble it, I’m all over it!
