Briony and Tom, both in their twenties, are very different characters. But opposites attract. In business, as in love, they complement each other.

They buy a farm and discover a rare drug. Tom grows it and Briony markets it. At first, they are oblivious of their responsibilities to the land and its people. But gradually they realise that they have been supporting a racist and colonialist regime.

The onset of the Rhodesian – Zimbabwean War of Independence tears at the couple’s relationship. Misunderstandings arise from their conflicting personalities and from external pressures. Events pull them apart, but also bind them together.

Try the Leopard’s Mouth is a romantic thriller set in Africa. It is also a historical novel, grounded in real events in the period 1970-80.

The Scrotum Toad has won a Reader Award from Chill with a Book.


"This is sooo funny. It was full of stereotypes and definitely not meant to be realistic and yet there were so many well observed truths about people and their preconceptions. I was a teacher and there are people like Jake in every school - cussed awkward. As for the rest, I certainly recognised them in my travels to USA and around UK. Wonderful book, made me laugh for days."

Chill with a Book. Reviewers' comments on The Corncrake


“Beautifully written with an engaging cast of characters. I found this both enlightening and disturbing”

 “Very impressive writing with an intellectual and educated edge. The more I ponder this book, the more I admire what it took to write it”

 “The discussion of the anti-German sentiments in Britain during the war and the movement for repatriation etc. was very good and eye-opening to anyone not well versed on the home front during World War I”
