Netta Newbound has many wonderful books and she with Bloodhound Books are launching An Impossible Dilemma.


Netta Newbound, originally from Manchester, England, now lives in New Zealand with her husband Paul and their boxer dog Alfie. She has three grown-up children and three delicious grandchildren. 

As a child, Netta was plagued by a wild imagination, often getting in trouble for making up weird and wonderful stories. Yet she didn’t turn her attention to writing until after her children had grown and left home. 

Although she mostly writes psychological thriller novels, all of which consistently rank highly in the best seller categories, she has also written several non-fiction books with a close friend and fellow author under the names of Sandra Rose & Jeanette Simone.

Book Description:

Would you choose to save your child if it meant someone else had to die?

Victoria and Jonathan Lyons seem to have everything—a perfect marriage, a beautiful daughter, Emily, and a successful business. Until they discover Emily, aged five, has a rare and fatal illness.

Medical trials show that a temporary fix would be to transplant a hormone from a living donor. However in the trials the donors die within twenty four hours. Victoria and Jonathan are forced to accept that their daughter is going to die.

In an unfortunate twist of fate Jonathan is suddenly killed in a farming accident and Victoria turns to her sick father-in-law, Frank, for help. Then a series of events present Victoria and Frank with a situation that, although illegal, could save Emily.

Will they take their one chance and should they?

A Sinister and Darkly Compelling Psychological Thriller Novel, this book is intended for mature audiences and contains graphic and disturbing imagery.

How the idea of An Impossible Dilemma came about

I’m always thinking of new ideas for a story but mostly they don’t come into fruition as I don’t write them down. The stories that do come about are the ones that niggle at me until I have no choice but to begin writing. I have a wild imagination and always think of way out scenarios to innocent situations.

An Impossible Dilemma came into being because I love to read books where extraordinary things happen to ordinary people. As a mother, I have a fierce protective streak where my children are concerned; I would do anything within my power to keep them safe and well. In the book, Victoria is a normal, happy, everyday kind of woman, but her perfect life takes a nosedive when her husband is killed in a freak farming accident around the same time her daughter is diagnosed with a rare, terminal illness. After learning of a potential, but illegal, cure, Victoria has to make the decision—break the law or watch her daughter die.

I don’t know a mother who wouldn’t consider breaking the law to save her child’s life, and maybe not all would go as far as Victoria does. But I know I would, in a heartbeat.
