Breaking Faith was inspired by a visit to an unusual geological site in an area of outstanding beauty; the Yorkshire Dales in England. I was site-seeing and visiting the Buttertubs, a group of deep sink holes set on the edge of a steep valley. Staring into the largest and deepest, I was suddenly struck by the question, 'What if there was a body down there?' From this simple speculation came the novel. My love of the area, interest in photography, dislike of organised religion, love of women and fascination with character all merged to create this piece of fiction. It's primarily a romance with thriller elements and some erotic content, which is essential to the structure. So far, most people have said that once they've started to read, they can't put the book down; a pretty good recommendation.
