The one word you could never use to describe sixteen year old Eve is ‘passive’. But she never expected to have to step in to save the life of that annoying idiot next door, Adam Quinn. And she only did it because she’s reserving the right to kill him herself!
Adam Quinn and Eve McGinty have been bitter rivals for as long as they can remember. When they both apply for the same job as a trainee car mechanic only one of them can get it, and Eve is finding it hard to convince the misogynistic men who work there of her suitability for the role. Then Eve’s younger brother, Jamie, is invited to join the rock band that the irrepressibly flamboyant Quinn and his friends have formed. But unfortunately the members of the band have made some dubious decisions in their eagerness to get a recording deal. When things turn nasty with the local psychopathic night club bouncers and drug dealers, Eve feels she has no option but to step in to prevent her brother being dragged down with the rest of the boys. As the consequences spiral out of control, Eve is forced to spend a lot more time with Quinn than she ever really wanted to.

My first ever job was working in hospice care, looking after people who were dying of cancer. After that I moved into forensic psychiatry in a secure-unit and eventually went on to work in a therapeutic community for emotionally disturbed children and later at a further education college for learning disabled young adults. I have also facilitated sexual abuse survivor groups, spent a short time doing volunteer work in Nicaraguan prisons and some significant time helping to set up a project providing trauma counselling for Chechnyan refugee children in Russia.
When I was a young adult myself, I was frustrated by the lack of challenging reading designed for my age group – it was all very tame. So I thought I’d better write it for myself! My books feature strong heroines who face difficult circumstances and rarely take the passive option.
