Searching for Mr Tilney

It’s the 200 year anniversary of Jane Austen’s death this year, and 200 years since Northanger Abbey was published. I’m delighted to tell you about a new novel, Searching for Mr Tilney, and reveal the cover – I hope you like it!

The official launch date is Tuesday April 11 2017 for the Kindle version, but there are paperback copies available on all Amazon channels including UK and US.


What secrets lie at the heart of Jane Austen’s teenage journal?

When Caroline Heath is taken to Bath in 1975, she little expects to find the gothic adventure she craves, let alone discover Jane Austen’s secret teenage journal, or how it’s possible to live in someone else’s body. Yet, she’s soon caught up in a whirlwind of fantastic events – travels through time, a love story or three, and even the odd sinister murder – or so she thinks. As the past and present entwine, Jane’s journal reveals a coming of age tale, set against the scandalous backdrop of Knole Park in Kent, and the story behind an enigmatic portrait. In Bath, a Georgian townhouse acts as a portal in time, and Caroline finds herself becoming Cassandra Austen, a young woman making her debut in society, torn between family duty and the love of her life. As the riddles unfold, and the lines blur between illusion and reality, will Caroline find the happiness she seeks or will she indulge her wild imagination, threatening her future and a fairytale ending?


I hope you’ll come back again for a sneak peek at Chapter One tomorrow!
