So, good news.
My debut crime novel Little Bird is being published by the wonderful Bloodhound Books. Cue much excitement and terror at the thought of my 103, 577 words being read by real people.
Bestselling crime writer, Louise Phillips has been kind enough to support the book throughout its creation, and has given me a fine quote to put on the cover:
“A search for identity, set against evil and revenge…a thrilling debut.”
Little Bird will be published on 31st of July.
