Now, in the autumn of my life where I write only for adults, it feels appropriate to have this 'strictly for adults' story published widely.

She heads for the mills of Manchester to seek work and a new future. 'Rebecca's Revenge' uses the everyday coarser language of the mills in parts of the book and doesn't shy away from a number of themes that may shock. A book that will be hard to put down.< Less
