About Clarissa’s Warning

A lottery jackpot changes Claire Bennett’s life.

She buys an ancient stone ruin on the island of her dreams. Her mystic aunt Clarissa warns her of danger, but Claire pays no heed.

Soon after moving to the idyllic island, Claire is confronted by a mystery. As the sinister story of her home slowly uncovers, Claire enters a world of inexplicable events and ordeals. Someone or something doesn’t want her there.

But is it really a curse, or is there something else behind the events?

“The author has a knack of descriptive narrative, describing the setting with a skill on par with some of the great English writers. The plot appears simple enough, but the rising tension keeps the reader focused right to the end. The novel could easily be compared to Catherine Cookson/ Agatha Christie and pursues a clever, down-to-earth intensity. I really enjoyed this story.” – 5 Stars, Readers’ Favorite

Clarissa’s Warning contains the key elements of gothic fiction, including: a curse, ghosts, mysterious architecture of an ancient building, a decaying setting, romance, and intense emotions. I also drew on contemporary gothic ideas of isolation and bleakness, setting my story in an isolated and empty village in the middle of a desert island. The one gothic fiction trope I have chosen to subvert is the ‘damsel in distress’. My protagonist, Claire Bennett, is a rational, down-to-earth bank teller. I have a fondness for strong female leads.

All of my fiction contains themes or issues for the reader to ponder. In Clarissa’s Warning, I wanted to raise awareness of a heritage lost through the decay of its ancient buildings.

Clarissa’s Warning is the third book in my Canary Islands’ series which began with The Drago Tree and includes A Matter of Latitude and A Prison in the Sun.
