Stranded, the first book of the Shorten Chronicles, came from a question that popped into my head in 2016, while I was watching an episode of Downton Abbey: how would a modern young woman cope in a grand house a century ago? Exploring possible answers in a romantic time-travel series has been a roller coaster ride — and huge fun. What started as an idea for one novel has turned into a series. Book 2, Escape, is published on October 15, 2021, and five further books are planned.

You can check out Stranded on Amazon: For more details about Escape, visit my website:, and you can also join my Readers Club there.
