condiotioned-twitter-ad-oct16Catherine was a supporting figure in my novel “Conditions” but takes a more central role in CONDITIONED. This novel takes place around her wedding.
Catherine is an aspiring poet with confidence issues and a difficult amorous past: man-33143__180euro-317925__180

She once settled for Mister Right instead for Mister Passion and ended up in divorce.



Although very attractive and full of potential Catherine hid from the world and clung onto Charles, an un-threatening (gay) male and generous friend until she found love in Robert, Charles’ lawyer.

Parker Posey would be a great actress to play her in a movie: Moody and edgy, yet sharp, honest and attractive.


Conditioned (Conditions Series 2) is available for preorder via these links to your local Amazon store:


CONDITIONED dives back into the world of gardener Charles, his friends and the state of his mental health – one year on. We meet loner Simon and his battle with the outside world, co-dependent Martha and her abusive husband Clive, neurotic poet Catherine on the verge of getting married, Tony, who finds his strange brother Charles a challenge, psychic Elaine looking for a new direction in life and quirky widow Sarah Roseberg who has a go at sorting out all of their problems.
CONDITIONS aimed to sensitise readers and make them think about tolerance and acceptance.
CONDITIONED wants readers to look beyond their attitude towards Conditions and examine what we all do and what we can do to overcome our challenges. The sequel is another snapshot of this circle of friends. Some will have improved their lives, others will not.

The conflict is drawn out over materialistic issues, but there are other underlying problems which go to the heart of what it means to be part of a family which, in one way or another. has cast one aside.

Meet flamboyant gardener Charles, loner Simon, selfless psychic Elaine, narcissistic body-builder Edgar, Martha and her version of unconditional love and many others as they try to deal with the event and its aftermath.
