One More Chapter announce three book cosy mystery deal

The news is finally out! I heard back in April but it's now official - I have signed a three book deal with One More Chapter, a digital-first imprint of publishing giant HarperCollins, for a new cosy mystery series set in Cornwall. The first book, 'Murder on the Menu', will be released in January 2021, followed by books two and three in February and March respectively. 

The series will follow ex-copper turned caterer Jodie 'Nosey' Parker as she returns to the Cornish seaside town she grew up in with her teenage daughter. There will be love, mystery and lots of laughs, plus a Pomeranian dog called Germaine. What more could you ask for?


'Murder Ahoy!', book 2 in the Bella Tyson series, available now!

I'm very excited to announce that the long-awaited follow up to 'Dead in Venice', 'Murder Ahoy!', is out now in ebook and paperback. Join crime writer Bella as she hosts a Murder Mystery cruise on the high seas - a cruise that doesn't go as planned...

Available at Amazon or download it for FREE on Kindle Unlimited.


'Dead in Venice' now in paperback and ebook!

My Audible Crime Grant finalist debut novel 'Dead in Venice' is finally available in paperback and ebook. It's currently FREE to download at Kindle Unlimited. Available exclusively at Amazon.

Crime novelist Bella has it all: a successful career, devoted readers - and a bad case of writer's block. She travels to Venice for inspiration and finds herself investigating a string of gruesome murders with a hunky Interpol agent.

But Bella soon realises that not everything in Venice is as it seems...

'Fiona Leitch is a true talent in this genre. Probably not a good idea to drink hot coffee while reading this, because you WILL laugh - and it WILL come out your nose.' - Andie Newton, author of 'The Girl I Left Behind'
