Book 4 is on the way! A Book of Murder

Not long now! It’s always incredibly exciting when a new book is about to be released and there’s so much happening in the build up. You can pre order your copy here.

There’s an online launch party which you can register for here. That’s going to be a lot of fun as I’m doing it with the fabulous Louise Mumford, author of The Safe House. We’ve got fantastic prizes, competitions and, not to mention, a fabulous cocktail, called The Locked Room, of course!

I’m also hosting an in person launch at my wonderful local bookshop, Barnes bookshop, on 24th May 6-8pm. Come along if you’re in the area! There will be wine, books and lots of mingling!

I’ll also be interviewed on Global Girls Online Book Club on the morning of the release. You can find that here.

On 13th May I’ll be on a panel at Crimefest in Bristol, talking about locked rooms and impossible crimes.

There are lots of interviews and festivals coming up. Including the fabulous National Crime Readers’ Month. I was very honoured to be asked to be on the organising panel for this and it will be running all through June! Look out for more here.

And as a little taster, you can see a live reading here that I did this morning of the opening scene from A Book of Murder. #whatsinthebag.

5 things…

As an ardent fan of Desert Island Discs, I was very excited to be interviewed by the wonderful Jill Doyle for her blog, the premise of which is that the author chooses five things they can’t do without, five things people don’t know about you and, of course, five songs that have been part of your life. It brought back a lot of wonderful memories. You can read the full article here.

First live reading of 2022!

Happy New Year! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and were able to see family and friends. I’m kicking the year off with a live reading from The Supper Club Murders over on FB for a lovely authors’ association. There’s a recording of it here if you’d like to watch. Enjoy the rest of the week and don’t forget there’s news of the next book on my latest newsletter which you can sign up for on the welcome page of the website. xxx

A Playlist for Book 3: The Supper Club Murders

I always do a little playlist for each book. It’s a bit of fun really and ends up being a complete shambles of different songs that relate to characters and moments in the book. I’ve loved doing this one as there is such an unusual collection of characters, including of course, Dupin, the little red monkey!

Book 3 release announced! Cover reveal video.

I’m so incredibly excited to share this cover reveal video, not least of all because it’s my husband on guitar! This is my favourite bit of the process, seeing the cover and showing it to everyone for the first time. It makes it all seem very real! Can’t wait for people to start reading. Meanwhile, enjoy the first look at book 3 – The Supper Club Murders. It’s available to pre order here and is released 16th September.

And you can view the video here

Meanwhile, here is the very beautiful cover!

Appearing at International Agatha Christie Festival

I’m so incredibly excited to be appearing at this year’s International Agatha Christie Festival and on the Agatha’s birthday as well!! I’m so honoured to be asked to speak at this amazing event. I’ll be talking about adaptations of And Then There Were None. There’s plenty to talk about and it should be a wonderful setting at Torre Abbey. It promises to be a wonderful festival with lots of great appearances which I will be going to as well! Here’s the link to book.
