Meet Babs Morton Author of "Mrs Jones" and the soon to be released "Wildewood" Trilogy.

 Please welcome author Babs Morton...Winner of The Paragraphs Of Power Contest for July 2012.

Born in the North East of England, B.A.Morton writes crime fiction and historical fantasy all with a smidgeon of romance thrown in. 

After a twenty year civil service career, she and her family escaped the rat race and relocated to the remote beauty of the Northumberland National Park. She now works part time in the village GP surgery and lives in a cottage built on the remains of a medieval crypt – the inspiration for a medieval fantasy trilogy. 

She keeps chickens and dogs, enjoys country life and can be bribed with chocolate! Her debut novel “Mrs Jones” a fast paced, romantic, crime thriller set in New York, was runner up in the Yeovil Literary Prize 2011 and subsequently published by Taylor Street Publishing. The sequel, Molly Brown should be out later this year along with the first in the Wildewood Trilogy.

Crime Fiction from B.A.Morton
Meet Tommy Connell a New York detective with a crooked smile, an eye for the ladies and a past that haunts him. Connell knows what the rule book says, he just chooses to ignore it. Assisted by his long suffering buddy Marty, Connell rattles cages wherever he goes. If you like a fast paced adventure with a touch of humour and romance, you'll love Tommy Connell. Follow his adventures in:

 Mrs Jones
Arriving in New York to deliver a package, Lizzie Jones witnesses a murder and finds herself on the run from the mob and the Feds.
It’s up to maverick cop, Connell, to unravel the truth surrounding the mysterious young Brit. As they run for their lives, he is inexplicably drawn back to his checkered past and an unsolved murder.
Connell’s an honest cop, usually, but when the depth of deception is revealed and the prize outweighs the sweetest revenge, he discovers the true meaning of temptation.

Runner up in the 2011 Yeovil Literary Prize

Coming soon…
Molly Brown
Connell is dabbling in things that he shouldn’t and it’s not the first time.
When a weird little kid disappears into the night and no one gives a damn, including the cops, Connell figures someone should take another look.
The good cops are busy hunting down a serial killer - good.
The bad cops are busy hunting down Connell - not so good.
The serial killer - well he’s looking for victim number twelve, which is - definitely not good.
And little Molly Brown is about to throw an almighty spanner in the works.

I am delighted to announce that Babs will be a guest blogger here in a week or so. Watch this space for announcements.
