LLois on the Loose


I’m delighted to say that both my books are now published in paperback in the USA! Lois on the Loose was first published as hardcover in the US but of course, we all know that paperbacks are the format of choice for any traveller – so if you want to stuff it in your panniers and take it on the road, now’s your chance! Red Tape & White Knuckles has never been published in the US before so I am delighted to see it making its American debut – with this fabulous new cover design! If you’re a true minimalist you can also buy them both as e-books. They’re published by Octane Press, a true independent, book-loving publisher – which is a rare thing these days, so please support them if you can.
