About the Book:

“Unprecedented Times” is Book one of a trilogy!

A science fiction-dystopian-drama with elements of romance and comedy… based on the real-life events of the COVID-19 pandemic.

This fact-meets-fiction novel looks at the events of the pandemic, but taking the story in a very different direction to reality.  In reality, we can control the virus, limit our losses, work together to overcome it… but is there a situation where that might not be the case? 

Follow MY version of the pandemic across two timelines, starting the book at both the beginning and the end of the story. Witness the events through the eyes of four characters.  Clara, a wannabe scientist working as an assistant at the World Health Organisation (WHO).  Her boss, Dr Vicente, the kind-hearted Director-General of the WHO.  Her twin sister, Rosa, a nurse and new mother.  And Rosa’s fiancé, Ben, a fun-loving police officer. 

How will the characters cope when the virus takes a very different turn in this story?  And just how far are the world leaders and are we willing to go when we are in truly unprecedented times?

Real facts and statistics have been used throughout this story. However, the story itself,   including all events and characters, are  fictional (unless referenced).    


50% of all sales of this book (£2.00 from each book sale) will be donated to the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for the WHO.

All she knew with any certainty was that whatever it was, it had the potential to be big. Big enough to worry one of the world’s most brilliant scientific minds.

Chapter One

A barren wasteland, with very few plants and vegetation, and very little wildlife. If Rosa didn’t know better, she’d swear they were living on Mars. Ironic really, considering she felt like she was living on another planet.

Chapter Two

This was perhaps where our true weakness against the virus lay, not in our capabilities or knowledge, but in our ability to collaborate and work from the same page, to rise above past discrepancies for the good of the people.

Chapter Three

And why would anyone give the immense responsibility of leading a country or community, to someone who was clearly an innately selfish, “mine’s bigger than yours”, power-hungry individual?

Chapter Four
