Many of my novels are quite serious affairs, but not this one.Black Taxi is just for fun.

Meet Rosie Sinclair - a failed hairdressing apprentice who's gone back to school for some peace. When her grandad takes a 'holiday' in gaol, he gives her the keys to his much-loved old Mercedes and his mobile phone. Those two gifts lead Rosie on a wild adventure through the lives of some spritely old people, a bunch of criminal heavies who think she has stolen their jewellery and two (yes, count them, two) gorgeous guys who chase after her heart.

I'm still laughing from the fun I had writing this book.
