Cover Release!
My second novel SLEEPING EMBERS OF AN ORDINARY MIND will be published on 1st December 2015. Here's the cover art and the back cover blurb:

History is story telling
But some stories remain untold

In fifteenth-century Italy, Paolo Uccello recognizes the artistic talent of his young daughter, Antonia, and teaches her how to create a masterpiece. The girl composes a painting of her mother and inadvertently sparks an enduring mystery.

In the present day, a copyist painter receives a commission from a wealthy Chinese businessman to duplicate a Paolo Uccello painting. Together, the painter and his teenage daughter visit China, and in doing so they begin their escape from a tragic family past.

In the twenty-second century, a painting is discovered that’s rumoured to be the work of Paolo Uccello’s daughter. This reawakens an art historian’s dream of elevating Antonia Uccello, an artist ignored by history because of her gender.

Stories untold. Secrets uncovered
But maybe some mysteries should remain shrouded

Publisher: 47North. Cover art by M S Corley
