Self-partnering is the new term for singleness as coined by actress Emma Watson, famous for her role as Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter films.

“If you have not built a home, if you do not have a husband, if you do not have a baby, and you are turning 30, and you’re not in some incredibly secure, stable place in your career, or you’re still figuring things out… There’s just this incredible amount of anxiety.” Source: The Independent 

 This is a real issue for Christians too, especially Christian women because there are many more women in the church than men. I explore this issue in my novella, Alpha Male, where the very beautiful Amy Castleton can’t find any attractive and interesting available males in the church. There is steady, reliable Bill, an assistant in the local library who is attracted to Amy but he is a little dull and not at all Amy’s type.

Enter tall, good looking, playboy journalist, Craig Wilson who is commissioned by his local paper to cover St James’ Alpha Course. But he appears to be a bit of an arrogant heart throb and certainly doesn’t share Amy’s faith. She has been here before with a previous boyfriend and so is very wary of being caught out again. He seems attracted to Amy though as he struggles to reconcile Amy’s faith with his lifestyle choices. Get ready to see the sparks fly…

Alpha Male is available on amazon at

The Kindle edition is now available at only 99p. Great Christmas read.
