Local Secrets is out!

No, that's not a grammatical error!

Local Secrets is the third Penny Plain story - and it is out now from Accent Press.

Something is afoot in Salthaven - graffiti down by the harbour, a WW1 soldier missing from the town’s war memorial and a dodgy councillor exuding charm. Penny and Leo are on the trail!

Silent Testimony

Yesterday, I went to the Tower of London to see the ceramic poppies instillation commemorating the fallen in World War One. It is most profoundly moving. Go if you can.

Silent Testimony   by Jan Jones

Poppies pour quietly from an open window
Each a broken body on a broken field far from home
In a while, the Last Post will sound
But for now this is beautiful, and tragic.
