This was followed by Fighting Back, which tackles the theme of racism. Her novel Don't Even Think It tackles themes of child abuse and family breakdown. 
   Her series of 'quick read' novels with a girls' interest, Siti's Sisters, (Ransom Publishing) has proved very popular and now runs to 24 titles.
