I am again taking a piece from my book, Songbird.  Pascale is now singing at Jake’s nightclub, but Gaston, her former lover, has tracked her down.  Harry manages to smuggle her out of the back door, while Jake announces to the audience that she is ill and can sing no more that night, and prepares to face Gaston.

Having run a nightclub for a few years, I was fully aware of how quickly matters can get out of control, and my aim, if possible, was to get Gaston and his henchmen out onto the street as quickly and quietly as possible.

“You told her I was here” said Gaston, who, having reached the foyer, pointed an accusatory finger at me.

I tried to play dumb. “I’m sorry sir, I don’t understand, why would I tell the singer that you are here? Does she know you?  I am confused.”

His face came a little too close to mine for comfort, as he spit out at me, “Don’t play dumb with me. You know who I am, and you may come to regret meeting me this evening. That bitch is mine, and I will have back what is mine. Tell her that she needs to keep running, or I’ll make her regret she was ever born.”

SONGBIRD is published by Blushing Books and is available on Amazon US here and on Amazon UK here



SONGBIRD is the story of a French singer, whose mesmerising voice and looks attracts Harry like no other woman has before. But she has scars from her past. It is also the story of Harry’s best friend, Jake, who owns the night club where Harry and Pascale first meet.

Songbird has gained some excellent reviews on Amazon, with 22 reviews averaging 4.9 stars out of 5.

“Songbird is a richly woven thriller, filled with twists and interesting characters.”

“This story kept me captivated and on the edge of my seat as the life of Pascale unfolds.”

“Riveting and entirely enjoyable, Song Bird was a book I had trouble putting down.”

    1. Gaston was not her lover, he was her mother’s lover, and in a rage he killed her mother and forced Pascale to sing in his club in Paris. He then began to mistreat her and sexually abuse her, and that was when she and Louis, her pianist, escaped. And now Gaston has tracked her down. He is an evil bully who thankfully comes to a sticky end.
