My Books

When a troubled and mysterious woman turns up at Paul Hutchings’ Baja hotel, his thoughts are thrown back to a time when his own life lay in shambles. As he observes Sandra’s struggle to find her way through an unnamed grief, he revisits the losses that threatened to break him.

Seven years earlier, after losing a career-changing acting role, the love of his life, and in middle age, his hair, Paul was set adrift until an old friend extended a lifeline, and Paul embarked on a journey which dramatically altered the course of his life. As he left his home in the UK and travelled to Australia, the United States, to Canada, and finally to Mexico, Paul’s journey evolved from running to seeking.

A novella prequel to the women’s fiction/romance novel House of the Blue Sea, Becoming Pablo is a story of finding one’s true self amid the rubble of a life.

After suffering a devastating loss, artist Sandra Lyall runs south to Mexico seeking solace from her grief. She finds refuge in a small Baja hotel on the edge of the sea to which she returns each winter to continue the healing of her heart. But this year’s stay would be different. When a scruffy Englishman with a posh accent offers to buy the painting she’s working on, everything changes, and Sandra finds herself torn between her hard-won serenity and her draw to a compelling but risky alternative.

With the magical waters of the Sea of Cortez as its backdrop, House of the Blue Sea tells a tale of surviving loss, seeing the extraordinary, and finding happiness in unexpected places.
