Finally! My third book in the “None Stood Taller” series entitled “None Stood Taller The Price of Freedom” has just been published. This book concludes the series, or alternatively it can provide an introduction for new readers (without spoiling the storyline for anybody!)

Lily’s great friend, Dorothy Archer, saw the opportunity to serve her country in 1941 and she didn’t hesitate. A woman escaping her past, with no prospects, she reckoned she had nothing to lose. Perhaps destiny dictated that the Special Operations Executive should recognise the very special talents of which even ‘Dotty’ is unaware.

It is a work of fiction but is deeply rooted in historic detail and I have dedicated it to the 39 women who served in Occupied France as SOE field agents during World War Two. Dotty owes more to those 39 women than to anything in the author’s imagination.

The contribution that the SOE made during WW2 is brought to life through the story of Dorothy Archer; her life and loves are a true reflection of the period.
