"Roller Coaster" is my first book about a character close to my heart - Annabel Peterson. This is a journey of discovery for her, for me and I hope for my readers.

If you are just looking for a series of sex scenes, this book is not for you. This is a book with a plot full of twists and turns and, I hope you will agree, well developed characters.

Yes, there are explicit sex scenes but not on every page. I wanted to explore how people behave in different circumstances - with different people - and how the balance of power can shift between them.

The cast of characters includes men and women both old and young. Some of them are rich and powerful.

In the end it offers a ray of hope for older women that life can offer a wealth of opportunities.

And I hope it persuades a few men that older women can be very sexy.

In my other life, I work as a business consultant so I prefer to keep my anonymity - hence no photo. But the legs on the book cover belong to me!
