I’ve worked in lots of different jobs since leaving school. Warehouses, offices, restaurants, building sites. I worked for Hodder & Stoughton Educational for a while, as a Foreign Rights assistant. At the same time I was performing in a lot of amateur dramatics. Eventually studied English & Drama at Exeter. Tried teaching. Ended up in the ambulance service as an EMT. Blogged about my experiences (under the pseudonym Spence Kennedy) and self-published a book based on the blog. Wrote two more books (a thriller called Into the Eclipse and a ghost story, On Calder Hill, also as SK).
I’m still working in the NHS – in community health – and working on another novel in my spare time, the first under my real name.
Thanks for reading!
Into the Eclipse
When Kate leaves home to go to university, she is recruited by a secretive organisation and severs all links to her family. Ella, her mother, tries desperately to win her back. Eventually she turns to Noah, an anti-cult campaigner. Together they face up to an organisation prepared to do anything to protect itself, as it moves inexorably towards one final, cataclysmic event.
On Calder Hill
Exams are the least of Holly’s problems. Her mum has come up with yet another get rich quick scheme – the opening of a café in the local park – and Holly has been roped in to help. But as she sits daydreaming at the counter one morning, a mysterious young girl comes to visit. When she disappears after leaving an ancient silver penny as payment, something is begun that will challenge everything Holly thinks she knows – not just about her past, but about the fabric of time itself.
