She never gave up, despite being rejected a lot. At first, she wrote romance, but then decided to write thriller novels. The first book she uploaded to a writing site, and tried as hard as she could to get it to the top of the site; she would spend all day every day, promoting her book on the site (this got her a gold star from the site she uploaded the book to). It also got a positive review from Harper Collins, although they did not sign her so they could publish her book. She was able to sell enough books, with the help of Smashwords and Amazon, to sell enough books so that she could pay her mother back; she was the one that was supporting Mel through her honing her writing ability. Her first book got published in the year 2011, which was the first novel in the “Lorne Simpkins” series, called “Cruel Justice”.

Comley has written the “Deception” series, “DI Sally Parker” series, the “Intention” series, the “Hero” series, and the “Lorne Simpkins” series. Her work is from the genres of women’s fiction, Mystery, thriller, and romance.

Another victim is found. Detective Inspector Lorne Simpkins and her partner Detective Sergeant Pete Childs are handed the case.

Before they can even try to solve the case, they have to connect the two victims to each other. Another murder is committed and Lorne is given a surprise, a rather grisly one. This serial killer has gone on a warpath and Lorne is the one thing that the killer is fixating on.

She cannot allow the failing marriage she is in or her new boss keep her from focusing on the job that she has to do. She and her boss share a secret of a sensuous sort. She has to catch the killer or she may become the next victim.

Lorne gets caught in a trap that gets her partner killed; it shakes her confidence to the very core. She cannot recoup for very long, because her teenage daughter is abducted from her. It is more than just her reputation as a professional is at stake when she goes to try to bring the Unicorn to justice.
