The Rest of My Life

“You can’t run away from commitment forever … “

Adam Hamilton-Shaw has more reason than most to avoid commitment. Living on a houseboat in the Severn Valley, his dream is to sail into the sunset – preferably with a woman waiting in every port. But lately, his life looks more like a road to destruction than an idyllic boat ride…

Would-be screenplay writer Sienna Meadows realises that everything about Adam spells trouble – but she can’t ignore the feeling that there is more to him than just his bad reputation. Nor can she ignore the intense physical attraction that exists between them.

And it just so happens that Adam sees Sienna as the kind of woman he could commit to. But can he change his damaging behaviour – or is the road to destruction a one-way street? 

Learning to Love Sometimes help comes from the most unlikely places …

Living in a small village like Hibberton, it’s expected that your neighbours help you in a time of need. But when Andrea Kelly’s house burns down, taking all her earthly possessions with it, it’s the distant and aloof Doctor David Adams – the person she would least expect – who opens his door not just to her, but to her three kids and slightly dotty elderly mother as well.

Andrea needs all the help she can get, dealing with aftermath of the fire and in the suspicious absence of her husband, Jonathan. But, as she gets to know David and his troubled son, Jake, she begins to realise that maybe they need her help as much as she needs theirs … 

Written around a short story selected for publication in the Birmingham City University Anthology, Paper and Ink!

In her dreams, she’ll meet a drop dead delicious hero who will love her and her three-legged dog without question. Alas, in reality, they don’t exist. Dashing policeman Mark does what men do: hides his hurt well. Mark has a lot riding on any sort of relationship he might enter into. He has a special needs son.

Warrant for Love - Blackmail, lies, adultery, heartache. Three Love stories wrapped up in one sexiliciously hilarious package.

Disillusioned in life and love, boy-in-blue PC Paul Davis is moody, broody and not great relationship material. He comes from a broken home, his wife is divorcing him, he's got no place to live, he's losing custody of his son, and his sergeant, who's sleeping with his wife, is a bully  who constantly baits him.

Leanne's caught her about to be ex cheating on her again, but as she’s about to impart her thoughts on the subject, she's wrongfully arrested for soliciting – by Paul and his partner. Despite his thundering faux pas, a relationship blossoms and things could be looking up for Paul, if only he can overlook the fact that Leanne’s friends, beleaguered mum Nicky and financial Goddess Jade, are about to embroil Leanne in a plot to blackmail her ex. Leanne wants closure. Paul wants a home. Nicky and Jade want revenge. Blackmail, lies, adultery, heartache. Will it all work out in the end or will Paul uphold the law?

A Little Bit of Madness White Knight in Blue rescues The Harbour Rest Home

Celia Summers, intrepid mother of two, is too cuddly for sweatpants, she suspects. But then, her class at The Harbour Rest Home are similarly clad. Celia loves her work as an art therapist. She’s proud that she gives her elderly independents something to look forward to, even if her partner is dismissive of her efforts. Martin has other things on his mind - telling complicated lies to Celia so he sell his mum’s house from underneath her to pay off his debts.

Unaware and trusting, Celia fights to secure gallery space for her geriatric charges’ artwork, and to keep The Harbour from being closed. She’s even ready to abseil from a church steeple to bring attention to the plight of her old people, no matter that she might fall and end up splattered all over the flagstones. When she does fall, however, it’s much more painfully. Will PC Alex Burrows, the man who’s stolen her heart, be her white-knight-in-blue and ride to her rescue?

Performed on stage at the Birmingham Repertory Theatre!

Reviewed by a top Amazon Reviewer at BestSelling Thrillers and given a glowing FIVE stars, my new thriller Death Sentence is now available on Amazon!

With kind permission, I’m quoting the review here: “This was such an excellent read. I found myself having to force myself to breathe because I didn’t know where Sheryl Browne’s plot was going to lead me next. I find myself in awe of this writer, her story telling is so plausible, the people she’s writing about so real and the pressure on the reader to finally reach the end of the book, unyielding! I found myself reading till stupid o’clock hour to finish this book. Well done Sheryl! Once again you’ve produced a book with such an array of plots and yet showing that love is still possible throughout tragedy and conflict”. – Treebeard
RATING: Five Stars

For info, the title of the book was suggested by a chief constable, no less, who also kind offered me advice on forensics and police procedure.

Death Sentence - He's killed your child and kidnapped your wife. What would YOU do?

Detective Inspector Matthew Adams and Patrick Sullivan, drug dealer, pimp, murderer: two men on opposite sides of the law. A history that goes way back. A bully even in his youth, Sullivan had made it his mission in life to make the goody-two-shoes copper's life a misery. Now Matthew has made it his mission in life to make sure the pimping scum responsible for prostituting young girls, abusing them, and beating them to death, is locked up for life.
When Matthew's child becomes a casualty of the war between them, does Matthew want justice? Or does he want retribution? When Patrick's brother is shot down like a dog in a drug bust gone wrong, Patrick wants payback. He wants Matthew. Or the copper loses his pretty, pregnant wife. As far as Patrick is concerned, it's quid pro quo.
Death Sentence: an edge-of-your seat story of revenge.
