BANNERVOGELS-GERMAN3“The Vogels are fighting on all fronts in this compelling story of intrigue and betrayal in a world at war.”

European citizens feel the full force of German injustice, but not all are willing to bend the knee. From France to Poland, Resistance groups fight from the shadows to thwart Nazi rule and hinder their goal to exterminate Jews.

In Russia, Wilmot Vogel struggles to survive the ravages of a frigid winter, compounded by the German army’s lack of progress. Hit by a surprise Russian attack on the front lines, however, he finds himself facing an even greater challenge than the freezing weather and Soviet bullets.

In Łódź, Poland, an idealistic doctor is resolved to oppose the Third Reich, but is he willing to betray his country? Will a Gestapo major find the answers he’s looking for? Can a ghetto Jew avoid transportation to a Nazi extermination camp?

Can two spies rekindle their friendship, or will past betrayals become hurdles too great to surmount? Can Britain’s MI6 maintain the upper hand in a contest against the German Abwehr? Who wins when one man fights for British interests whilst the other seeks to undermine them?

In the darkest days of war, love flourishes. Two women with very different paths are led to one man who changes the course of their lives forever – but only one will win his heart.

As Laura and Dieter Vogel settle into their new lives in the English countryside, their three sons struggle to balance duty and conscience in German-occupied Europe.


Have a great day, everyone!

All the best

Hello everyone!

OnAllFronts.Kindle.ROkay, first of all, sorry, it’s been a while since I’ve put a newsletter together. I have no excuse apart from that I’ve been desperately trying to finish the sequel to The German Half-Bloods whilst not rushing the work. The book, The Vogels, On All Fronts, is going on pre-order very soon, and I’ll keep you updated.

As I mentioned before, the Half-Bloods will be a trilogy, with book three, entitled, Before The Brightest Dawn being released in 2019. I intended the first book to be a stand-alone but got into trouble halfway through it when I found myself mired in 1940 … oh, dear, I thought … or words to that effect. Book two, although with a handful of pages less, will be even bigger than the German Half-Bloods in size, and although I’ve managed to reach mid 1942, I still have a long way to go. One thing I’m certain about, however, is that I have a fast-paced story that will, hopefully, please you, my dear readers.

TheGermanHalfBloodsV2.Kindle.uIn other news, The German Half-Bloods has a new cover. Unfortunately, the original cover was banned from Amazon after a fellow author complained about the Swastikas. As you historical Fiction buffs might have noticed, there are hundreds of books with that symbol on them, but hey, ho, said I, the book has just been awarded a Bronze medal at the 2018 Readers’ Favorite Awards, and is coming up to its three month anniversary as a #1 Bestseller. Take that, little creepy fellow author, whoever you are (Amazon refused to give me the name of the lttle weasel) Please note, Indie authors rock, and are the most helpful and friendly of people.bronze

Now, I’ve had a lot of readers asking me when the sequel to Swearing Allegiance is coming out. I’d like to say that it will be soon, but I have to say that I’ll start writing it in mid 2019 and try my best to get it out at the end of next year.

Good news, The Flock Trilogy will be available  in audio books by the end of the year. The Errant Flock is already out in Amazon and the other two are almost ready. Swearing Allegiance, the Mercy Carver Series, and The German Half-Bloods are also in production with Dark Shadows, The Mercy Carver Series, already available.

It’s great to speak to you all again, and it’s also good to have a little break from writing whilst the Vogels is in editing. I’m going down the coast to a resort called, Calpe, for a wee holiday. I hope to read some really good books that I’ve been seeing on Amazon, take some long walks and relax.

JanaTwitterAugust2018Please get in touch if you have any questions about any of my books, or upcoming books.


And most importantly, here is Marnina, now 7 months old and having great fun.40684224_10215076596687387_3287639749593923584_n

Take care, and talk soon

Hi everyone

Well, here we are in May already, straddling the summer and coming up to one the biggest book-buying and reading seasons of the year.

In Spain, we’re seeing great weather, so good in fact, I managed to get my baby, Marnina to the beach for the very first time. 31958169_1707258075995311_2344127321193054208_nHow is she? you might be asking. Well folks, she is biting me to death, chewing my hair, destroying the wooden furniture with her razor-sharp teeth, and being what she’s supposed to be; a Labrador puppy who’s naughty but adorable.31743660_1705285126192606_6751616347962081280_n

Back to Business. I wanted to let you all know that the sequel to The German Half-Bloods is coming along nicely. I thought I’d be around 40,000 words at this point, but I’ve reached 60,000 and am getting the book cover together as we speak.

The VogelsIn Book 2, The Vogels: On All Fronts, I’ll be in Poland, Britain, France…
