'A tormented psychic. An unethical Detective. A soulless demon.
'Homeless petty criminal, Grub, finds shelter in a derelict house during a storm. Why does he ignore his instincts telling him to run? 
'Detective Vic Carter resorts to dubious means to arrest anyone he believes is guilty of a crime. After two murders and a kidnapping he has Haley Shaw in his sights.
'Haley has enough to cope with: a traumatic past, keeping secrets from her husband, her inability to save those dying in her visions.
'After a night of carnage Haley is on the run and desperate to save her son. It isn’t just evil humans she has to fear. Something darker and deadlier is out there. It needs Haley’s unique soul to live again. This time nothing will stop it.'

1 1 y separately published work icon Ghost Ride Rosemary Hayes , Bundoora : Bundoora Homestead Art Centre , 2010 Z1809165 2010 single work children's fiction children's

'What a grand place it must have been, standing alone on its hill, surrounded by parkland, with racehorses grazing in the paddocks. But, further back in history, what was the land like before the house was built, when it was home to the Wurundjeri-william clan?

'Ella is about to find out. She is lonely and miserable when she comes to live in Bundoora, but she has a vivid imagination and a passionate love of horses. And so, as life-changing events overtake her, she finds that she is able to glimpse into the past and draw strength from it.

'Ghost Ride is a story of how the past informs the present, of strained relationships and of courage in the face of illness. But ultimately it is an uplifting story of love and letting go.' (Publication summary)
