Amazon Review: Simon Whaley
Painted Ladies is a crime novel with an engaging protagonist. As an ex-police officer, now private investigator, Jasmine Frame is trying to establish herself in her new career, whilst also coping with her own challenges in life about who she really is. This is made more difficult when a great opportunity arises to further her career, which has the potential to compromise her desires to challenge people's stereotypical views of transvestites and transgender issues. This works really well as a crime novel, right to the end, and it would make a good novel for a book group to read and discuss. I look forward to seeing the next Jasmine Frame crime novel.

I retired a short while ago from a career in science teaching, so can now write full-time.
Painted Ladies is the first, full length, Jasmine Frame story. The second novel Bodies By Design is now available published by ellifont along with a noivella called Discovering Jasmine. Go to www.ellifont.wordpress.com for details.
I'm happily married and living in Herefordshire. Previously, I spent thirteen years living and working in the Newbury area which is the setting for the Jasmine Frame stories. Like Jasmine I am transgendered but, unlike her, not planning on transitioning.
