ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Her career in the funeral industry instilled a discipline needed to take on writing as a full time career with her debut novel Secrets. Her next novel Lake Sherlock set in Daylesford and another murder mystery, is well under way as Sen moves into her new writing journey. Stay tuned for that one.
I'm an avid reader, particularly of intrigue, mysteries and crime and just gotta say -
Wow!! As a first novel you’ve smashed it.
The mark of a good book is one that I either can’t put down or more so for me one that I read over a number of days and it’s doesn’t leave me, constantly jumping into my thoughts throughout my day, rememberIng snippets and finding myself trying to figure out who the culprit was.
Very impressive, can’t wait for your next novel!
I really loved your book. It kept me interested from the first page. I changed my mind so many times about who the killer was and I thought you brought the storyline altogether really well toward the end. I can't wait for your next book. Well done.
Just finished reading SECRETS, which I enjoyed so much and very well written, also kept me captivated until the very end. I am now looking forward to reading your next novel. Congratulations Glenda, well done
I really enjoyed your work SECRETS very much. I was captured in the first few pages. Very pacey, left me feeling quite anxious, a 'how could that happen moment'. I felt that the secrets were very that, so very secret; and the uncovering of them was very effectively dealt with. A good plot with a depth of understanding of the human condition.
What a great read! I loved how the characters developed and all the twists and turns. Towards the end I couldn't put it down till I found out who did it lol. Look forward to your next book 🙂
I have just finished reading your book and loved it. This may sound strange but when the “type” changed for the serial killer, in my mind I could hear his voice as if he was speaking the words out loud. The story line kept me interested and guessing and overall was a great read that I didn’t want to put down. Will recommend to my friends. Thanks and hopefully you’ll consider doing another.
Hi Sen. I've just finished your book and I have to say I thought it was brilliant. I normally only read James Patterson. And yours was on a par! I'm not a quick reader but I read it in three days.

I see from your website, you are a debut author. Your writing is concise and your language plain and simple, easy to understand. From the start of the book, I found it hard to put down. It is a great story and held my interest with a good range of characters each with different personalities.
I hope you finish your second book soon. I'm keen to read it. Well Done, Sen.
I finished the book last night, it was fantastic. Well done. I was loving trying to guess who the killer was...
Very exciting, can’t wait for the next one
I have finished your book and just wanted to congratulate you. I enjoyed it very much and can tell you put a lot of effort into researching police procedures. Caroline also finished it and asked me to tell you she enjoyed it too. Well done! I’m looking forward to your next novel.
