I write historical novels and a series of British legal thrillers. To see all of them click on the headers above. To learn more about my main character Sarah Newby, read on below.

Sarah Newby, a former teenage single parent on an inner-city estate, has worked her way up to begin a career as a criminal barrister. For her the law is a game – ‘A Game of Proof’ – where each trial is a contest where the winner takes all. Forget about guilt or innocence: what matters is winning. And she’s good at winning.

Then her own son, Simon, is charged with murder. He says he’s innocent. But he’s lied to her in the past. What should she do? Hide the evidence which seems to prove his guilt? Or abandon him to justice? It’s not a game any more.
