Profile Information

Something About Me and My Book:
Two men from different generations, both initiated into a powerful organisation that throughout history has sought control and uses their power for destruction. They leave behind a wake of murder, manipulation and ancient secrets.

The first man stalks women of the night in the Whitechapel district of London, England in the 19th century. While the other stalks his victims in the cosmopolitan city of Seville, Spain in the 21st century; knowing that only he could uncover the true motives of one of the world’s most infamous serial killers - Jack the Ripper.

Annabella Cordova quickly becomes embroiled in the conspiracy involving the university she studies at. When her roommate goes missing, it becomes very personal. Her past gradually unveils, as she is closer to this than she could have possibly imagined.
A childhood accident causing permanent deafness enables Annabella to use her other senses to read facial and body language; detecting lies in people, including suspects.

Andres Valero, the troubled detective, returns from forced leave, only to be faced with horrific crimes that brings his memories to the surface.
The novel continuously takes the reader back in time to the 19th century; creating a psychological profile of the man that wanders the London streets, his paintings depicting crimes only seen by a killer’s eyes. And a boy that’s continuously tormented by his own sadistic tendencies.
With Annabella and Andres combined, they must stop this person at any cost, and reveal a conspiracy hidden for centuries.

If you are interested, I can send you an e-book format of your choice.

Author Bio:

I live in Auckland, New Zealand with my two dogs. Although I have had
training in Beauty and Spa therapy, editing, journalism, animal behavior and photography, criminology and counselling; my main interest lies in writing novels which allows me to explore and learn about other eras and countries, creating characters that have deep rooted flaws, but uses those to achieve the end goal.

My inspiration for the historical aspect of my novels came by accident. When finishing writing my first novel and starting to edit it, I stumbled across a conspiracy theory, in which some believed the Freemasons were involved in the Jack the Ripper murders. From there, the historical aspect took shape, continuing throughout all the novels I write.

I hope that each novel I write doesn’t necessarily cause a person to believe in the conspiracy or myth, but challenges what they really believe could be possible. To everyone reads my books, I hope they can transport themselves back in time, learn more about the world around them, and maybe even question certain things they believe in.


As an author of historical/present day international thrillers, my books can challenge readers, as well as taking the reader on a journey throughout Europe and abroad.

Having studied in Criminology and Neuro Linguistic programming, in addition to doing a diploma course in body language, enables me to give an authentic feel to my characters, and the crimes committed. Because I’ve always been fascinated with human psychology, especially criminal psychology, I always include that element in every book I write.
My books don’t just cover the crimes committed, but what drove that person to commit those crimes? Examining their history, their weaknesses, childhood; all building up to why some of the most infamous crimes were perpetrated.

Sample chapter of Initiated to Kill

London, 1996

“Mummy, mummy, wake up! Please don’t leave me.” A dark shadow appeared, as a man

advanced towards her.

“Mummy’s not going to wake up, but Daddy will look after you.”

“Please don’t hurt me, I’ll be good. I promise.”

An arm went around the child, and darkness fell.

Hi Sharlene, After a little while I have decided to revisit this site, The Book Marketing Network.  I have not found it to be of much use, most members are in the States.  I live in New Zealand and promote my book initially here and then UK.   So I decided to try and filter for NZ members and was most interested in your profile and book.  In fact when I read the first line "Two Men from different generations..." I though I had clicked on to my book in error.  My Blurb starts "Two soldiers from different generations...."  I also follow your interest in criminal psychology, a criminologist in the UK has been very helpful to me.  However my story is true - it is my autobiography.   I shall check out your web site and Amazon, an opportune time because I am going on holiday and hope to have some time to relax between grandchildren.   However in the meantime perhaps you would like to have a look at my site www.ablelimitededitions.co.uk and my facebook page. .https://www.facebook.com/groups/292002080941070/?fref=ts  What I would really like is for people to join that group, even if they do not buy the book because it gives me incentive to carry on towards my goal.   Some members from this group have joined which is encouraging.   It would be great to hear from you. I live in Taupo.  Kind regards
