Development Pitch

Appearances can be so deceptive. Four women going to play tennis. Four women who seem to be so lucky in life and have everything. It all seems so innocent. But against the backdrop of daily life at a tennis club where petty squabbles and rivalry inevitably exist, beneath the surface these women are struggling. As truths emerge about husbands and themselves, life will never be the same again for any of them.With issues including infidelity, infertility, deceit, desperation, rape and substance abuse, there is something here that everyone can relate to in some way or another and at the end of the day, it is friendship and loyalty that least for some of them.

About The Author

I've published six novels with a medical background -five in a series and one stand alone but Game Set and Match is a completely different departure, set in a tennis club full of surprises, unusual but characters, cliff hangers and personal dilemmas in abundance.
