About the Strangers series: There’s a famous saying attributed to John Gardner that authors like to quote: that there are only two plots – a stranger arrives in town, or a person goes on a journey. Most of my books have been based on the latter, in its loosest sense (sometimes a journey of discovery, rather than a literal journey, but a major change, of death or misfortune or even good fortune which propels the main character in a new direction). So I wondered what the other side of the coin would look like – a stranger arriving in town. And there was my series title – Strangers.
