Detective Garda Claire Ravenwood is facing disciplinary procedures from Human Resources of An Garda Síochána, the Irish Police Force. A book based on her horrific experiences while undercover in a Human Trafficking ring, and written as a means of coming to terms with the trauma, is not only published, but is now becoming a film, with production starting in a remote village in Co Clare, Ireland.
Jackson Logue, an American actor running from his own demons and a tragic family event, hoping it will help him purge and absolve his past, has taken on the screen role of one of the characters; that of Ravenwood’s real-life lover who was murdered on that case, the covert operation that almost ended her life.
With Ravenwood on set as a consultant to the movie, along with her boss and other members of her team, she’s soon faced with the realities of the job when she uncovers a potential Trafficker in the area. Those suspicions are confirmed when a body is found, displaying all the hallmarks of her own almost fatal experience. It only worsens when she sees Sava Radic, the man who killed her lover and almost succeeded in killing her.
Unfortunately, surviving his attempt to kill her only deepens suspicions by some of her colleagues that she’s dirty, and that Radic allowed her to live. Despite the reservations of the other Gardaí, she’s reinstated to help with the investigation into the murder and trafficking links, as it has all the hallmarks of the previous operation she was involved in.
Her growing rapport with Logue puts her in a precarious position, and puts him in harm’s way as those trying to hamper the investigation target and kidnap him. Ravenwood and the team come to his rescue and those of the trafficked girls. In this the Gardaí are thwarted again as the rescued girls disappear from a supposedly secure and safe location. Logue is also a target again for retaliation as the Gardaí try to close the net on the Trafficker.
The only conclusion the Gardaí come to is that they have a leak, something they’re already suspected. Someone is feeding Radic information and sabotaging their operations, and Ravenswood’s seemingly miraculous survival, and her behaviour on set with Logue puts her in the frame as the corrupt cop, and Radic’s inside person.
But can she clear her name, rescue Logue and the trafficked girls, and capture Radic in time?
Welcome - Tá fáilte romhat....
Books and music have always been the means to escape into new and different worlds. The seeds sown by words and notes evolved and gave birth to other worlds, and those are the ones I write.
If something I write can help just one other little lost and lonely girl find some where to escape to from the harsh realities of the world, then my work has just begun… because everyone needs to escape from time to time. I want to provide a doorway, a portal into those other dimensions…
So this is me, tour operator to the world of Imagination…

Next book... Crossing Lives - 8th December 2017
In the midst of mayhem and chaos Jada Kai has been set free from the confines of the stasis chamber, rescued by those like her, with the same abilities, and who would use her to bring about their new world order.
Jarred Karins intends to unite his offspring and use their combined abilities once more to set in motion a world-changing event. However, his plans are hindered by the one person he needs the most; Jada, as his youngest child continues to defy him, inexplicably escaping his clutches. In this game of capture and escape, Jada is once again faced with the potential destruction of the world, and she alone must face the man who made her.
While in the stasis chamber she learned many things, connecting with the Universe, learning its secrets, but it didn’t prepare her for meeting an older version of herself, a version with the ability to bend time, and who has been tweaking events behind the scenes along her timeline in an ongoing effort to hinder Karins. Her older self teaches her how to control her abilities, to use them, but will it be enough to stop Karins in time?
Re-release of Evolved
"The writing has an immediate cinematic quality ... a page-turner from the Prologue to a headlong rush of incidents"

'... a beautiful journey of the soul...'
~ Gemma Lalor, Artist - Magically Overactive Imagination ~
"...an extremely well thought out and executed set of soft yet compelling music from an artist who seems to deal exclusively in greatness. Fans of graceful atmospheres will find a lot to enjoy here. Elaine Nolan exudes a certain quiet and focused beauty all through this record that is quite attractive."
~ Mick O'Cull - Independent Music Journalist ~
Intrigue, Espionage, Canada and Mexico shoring their borders against American migration, American terrorists blowing up embassies, BDS&M (but not TOO much)…
This book has it all!
But what REALLY sets this book apart from every other novel I’ve ever read is the soundscape that comes along with it. Elaine creates beautiful audio orchestrations that enhance the reading experience profoundly. It’s like the difference between a cathode ray tube TV and IMAX!
