A big “Hello” to everyone inquisitive enough to visit my home page; it’s great to meet you. I hope you’ll stay long enough to visit my other pages on Short Stories, Art Work, Poetry, My Blog, and of course Tissue of Lies my first novel.
I intend to make this blog-site a mixture of articles, short stories and poetry. The articles will vary and will encompass life experiences, news items and interesting pieces I’ve re-blogged from other people. You’ll see from my posts that I have a wide interest range, so I hope you’ll join with me and follow me into my blogging adventure. Together, it could be a an enjoyable ride.
I’m not sure if I should plug my book here but what the heck, “nothing ventured, nothing gained” is what they say, so here goes.

Fantastic book. Very gripping and original. Really enjoyed it. It’s a shame it isn’t out in paperback as I’d like to buy it for my mum to read. Well done Ms Parkes.

A thriller of a story enclosed in many tangled lies.
The author slowly weaves the lies, entangles her main characters within their threads and reveals the consequences and outcomes with a few twists to her plot.
I have already encouraged two more purchases to friends that l know will fully enjoy this story and would recommend this to anyone who has a fascination with the weight a lie could carry. An enjoyable read.

A well thought out story.
This is a really great story, with many twists and turns, the characters are good and the story flows along nicely, my only gripe knocking off a star for this reason is that towards the end the character Jeanette, all of a sudden became Jean, and it became frustrating, there are also a few repeated words within the book and a few silly mistakes e.g site instead of sight, I do not want to seem picky, and would not put anyone off reading the book because of this as it is a good read, it just needs a further proof read.

“Tissue of Lies”
“TISSUE OF LIES”
Julie Simpson always had a vague suspicion that the dear couple who’d raised her, were not her real parents. To her horror, she discovers not only are her fears well founded, but unbelievably, this same couple had somehow been involved with stealing her when she’d been just a baby.
Julie longs to find out the truth but she’s reluctant to start anything that might end up with her beloved parents being prosecuted for her abduction; she loves them and wants to protect them. Ultimately however, the need to know her origins wins and secretly, she searches out her real parents and forms a bond with them. Owing to the necessity to protect her mum and dad, it’s a relationship formed on lies.
Julie’s husband John, in on the secret, fears there is something odd about her new-found parents, particularly her birth mother Jeanette, who strikes him as being insincere. However, the uncanny resemblance between her and his wife Julie, quickly brings him around; they look so alike he cannot doubt they are mother and daughter. As their relationship deepens and they all become more comfortably at ease, John’s fears evaporate completely.
Perhaps he would have been wiser to heed his instincts, for all is not as it seems; there is something odd about Jeanette. Even her husband Arthur begins to notice her changing. Yet even he is totally ignorant of the conniving lengths she is preparing to go to wreak her revenge. Surprisingly, her revenge is not toward her daughter’s abductors; there is another, even older score she wishes to settle. A tale of lies, deceit, greed, revenge and much more.
