My novel, Lamplight, has been forty years in the making! It’s something very personal to me, containing scenes from my early life and those of my late father, who returned to England from New York on board SS Manhattan in June 1933. So it’s no surprise that my character, David Klein, is also aboard this very same voyage. The novel starts in 1912. David is 18 when he runs away from the poverty and orthodoxy of his Jewish home in Birmingham, England, for the bright lights and opportunities of New York. But trouble is in store. From the anguish and terror of nearly drowning at sea, the story moves between New York, Birmingham and eventually to Breslau in Germany where, when working as a war reporter, he meets Karin. Together, they live through the burgeoning terror of Nazi Germany in 1938.

Vichyssoise is set in 1939 France during the Vichy regime. Living in France I was able to glean much of my research from original French texts.

 In an entirely different mould I wrote 3rd Degree Murder, based on my 30 years’ work experience in a red-brick English university. I always like to introduce sub-plots wherever possible. In this one a Jewish secretary and a Muslim student get together to foil their hated professor. 3rd Degree Murder is now fully available.
