I write psychological suspense as Ella Drummond.
Here’s the blurb:
When Sera rushes to help her neighbour, Henri put out a barn fire, she ignores the gossip about him. Henri is a mystery, no one knows where he’s come from, or how he ended up with scarring on one side of his body. The farm holds many memories from Sera’s childhood. She yearns to discover what became of her best friend Dee, when she and her family mysteriously disappeared from their home at the farm one hot August night in 1989.
Henri keeps his distance from the locals and they are suspicious about why he’s moved to the village. However, Sera can’t help liking him and despite her mother’s warning, they become friends. Noticing a poster of the David Bowie concert from May 1976 in his farmhouse, she remarks on it unaware that the tragic occurrences of that night link three timelines and their own pasts.
Set during three heatwaves in 1976, 1989 and 2003 in a village near Epernay in Northern France, this is the story of two generations of women and what happens when the secrets they have guarded for decades are unearthed.
My second psychological suspense, While I Slept will be launched in May with a cover reveal in April.
