Some believed in fate, and Darren was a true believer but when Julie never reciprocated his advances they just never happened. Until she was sent back in time to the 1970s and met Darren again in a way she never expected. #timetravel #paranormalbooks #iartg #wrpbks #RRBC

Julie should be dead, yet she was in someone else’s body and living their life through her eyes. And if things couldn’t get any worse, it was 1972. Julie Compton’s life should have ended when she crashed the car, instead … Continue reading

Wide Awake Asleep is on a book tour!

Wide Awake Asleep
on tour! 

I’ve never used resources like Rachel’s Random Resources before (it’s usually me on WWBB as the host!), so I’m looking forward to having Wide Awake Asleep pampered and shared around like a bag of Jelly Babies! (Unless they are my Jelly Babies, and then they’d NEVER be shared!)

So, from November 8th I hope to be splayed (the book, not me!) on many book blogger sites, where I will reveal various excerpts from the book, interviews and — gulp — a few book reviews where I’ve gifted copies of Wide Awake Asleep.

Wide Awake Asleep
(a time travel, paranormal adventure).

Can you really be on the WRONG path in life?

No one knew she was driving on that stretch of road. No one saw her car leave the highway and crash into a watery ditch. No one heard the car’s windscreen smash or saw the tree branch come through to impale her to her seat. No one heard her screams.
Julie Compton’s life should have come to an end that day, but instead, that moment was the beginning of her new life as she wakes, unharmed, back in 1972 and primed to relive her traumatic childhood all over again.
One flaw. She’s in the body of a stranger.
Journey back to the 70s and 80s England where Julie is forced to jump through the eras, occupying and controlling other people’s bodies she knew as a child. She must work out which destiny path was the wrong one all while wondering if her body, back in 2016, was dying in her car.
With each momentous change, her memories transform and she realises she’s not only changing her future but of those around her. She’s finally ‘living’ but does that mean she must die?

Because the end is sometimes the beginning: Wide Awake Asleep

Is she awake or is she dreaming? Reality or nightmare? Julie Compton can’t believe she’s escaped a terrible car crash… it’s impossible, in fact. A tree branch had impaled her to her seat, yet here she was, unharmed and looking … Continue reading

‘Past events can be changed but one must be careful of how one does it because it’ll impact on the rest of one’s life.’—Dáire Quin, Modify your Destiny if you Must, 2003

No one saw Julie’s car leave the road, no one saw her crash into the watery ditch, no one saw the gnarled tree branch pierce through the window screen and impale her to her seat.
No one heard her screams.
Yet, this was the beginning of Julie’s life.

Julie Compton, is a forty-something woman, striving for success in a male dominated business world. She thinks she’s made it. She thinks she has it all. Trouble is, her destiny has been travelling in the wrong direction and Julie is now forced to relive her life by occupying people’s bodies from her past in a time-travel, paranormal adventure.

For readers who enjoyed books like ‘The Time Traveler’s Wife’ and ‘The Lovely Bones’.

  Excerpt from WIDE AWAKE ASLEEP – a paranormal, time travel romance.

 Disorientated, I looked around at my surroundings. I had the strange feeling that I wasn’t here at all. I thought I heard a voice, and I cocked my head, but it was carried away on a gust of wind. The feeling of hands touching my body subsided and I was left in this paradox universe where I was me inside someone else’s body.
I looked down at myself and the first thing I saw was a plaid skirt, and thick tights, which sagged at the knees and ankles.
My heart began to beat in horror. No, no. Please, God, no.
My hands touched the stained cardigan over my large droopy breasts. Up further to my face…
My hands recoiled.
I felt a moustache!
I gasped in horror. I was ‘Auntie’ Iris Grimshaw!
It was bad enough being goofy Sarah Marshall, but now I had a moustache! And a bloody monobrow!
Iris began to walk, and I felt a sharp pain in my hip. I slowed, but the pain persisted. It shot down my left leg every time my foot touched the ground. No wonder the old sod was grouchy.

No one knew she was driving on that stretch of road.
No one saw her car leave the road and crash into a watery ditch.
No one heard the car’s window screen smash as a tree branch pierced through and impaled her to her seat.
No one heard her scream.

But that moment was the beginning of Julie’s life.

Wide Awake Asleep – coming Christmas 2016
Village girl Julie Compton couldn’t wait to leave Potterspury, her mum, boyfriend and best friend when they turned against her and turned her cossetted life upside down and inside out.
Unable to forgive then, she left for London and threw herself into making a name for herself in the perfume industry.
Twenty years later, and with adult hindsight, she can see that she played an active part in her adolescent misery.
But it was too late to rectify things now. Her mum was dying, her boyfriend and best friend had both died. And the village where she grew up had moved-on without her.
It’s strange how things turn out, isn’t it?
‘Time travel may be possible for some,
 but it happens at impractical times and when you least expect.’
Dáire Quin, Dark Energy, Dark Matter, 1999
