September 2022 – for those of you who’d still like to read Truth Sister and Blackwolf, I’m afraid there’s going to be a delay. Unfortunately the publisher is going into liquidation, which means that you won’t be able to buy either title until I get something else sorted out. I’ll be looking into finding another publisher, as well as my options for self-publishing – so watch this space.
KNOWLEDGE IS POWER. TO SURVIVE IN A HOSTILE WORLD, WOMEN MUST TAKE CONTROL OF THE KNOWLEDGE THAT REMAINS. The year is 2149. The Women’s Republic of Anglia seeks to harness forgotten technologies from the time when men ruled the world.
“Naturals” are second-class citizens, while women born through cloning are the true children of the Republic. When Clara Perdue graduates from the prestigious Academy, she is ready to do her part to support the Republic and bring about a better future for all. But when she stumbles on information that the Republic has tried to keep hidden, she begins to realise that the society she has been taught to believe in – and trained to defend – is not all that it seems. A secret from Clara’s past puts herself, her family, and her friends in danger, and Clara must choose between subservience and rebellion. In a world where knowledge is power, what you know can save your life. Or it can get you killed.
. . . to Chapter 1:

If you’re caught up in it, who can you trust?2150, the Women’s Republic of Anglia, where epidemic diseases have reduced the population and killed off most of the men.

Ex-Truth Sister Clara Perdue, having escaped the great flood of London, has become separated from her friend Jack Pike and is now trying to reach Wight, where her mother Sophia is in prison. But once she makes it there, how can she avoid capture herself? And how can she help Sophia escape?
Meanwhile, Jack has fallen in with Hurn, a warlike chieftain in the lawless lands between Anglia and Wessex. Can he find new friendships and forget Clara? And when the Wessex army attack, can he face his doubts and his fears, and fight?
And while Hurn seeks to steal a virus weapon, another plague is sweeping through Britain. Can Clara and Jack survive?
