It’s the 23rd of December – which means that it’s officially Mistletoe and Murder season! I always make a post on this day each year to remind you all that if you want to start your festive read, or reread, today is the perfect time to do it. I’m now away for the holidays for the rest of the year, so this is the last post you’ll get from me in 2023. But I will be back in January, with a lot of exciting things – several really fun announcements to share with you, plans for the 10th anniversary of Murder Most Unladylike, and news about my 2024 tour dates.

It’s true – my tour for The Body in the Blitz is done! Thank you to everyone who came along and made it so special. I had a wonderful time and I hope you did too! I’m now resting from events until 2024 – I have to start planning Ministry 3, and then I’ll be mostly working on writing it in the spring of 2024. But in late spring/summer of 2024 I’ll be back out on the road for the 10th anniversary of Murder Most Unladylike! Please be patient until my tour dates are announced – I always try to get to as many parts of the UK and Ireland as possible, but of course I can’t always visit your town or c ..read more

Hello! Magazine article

I was interviewed in Hello! Magazine last week! I spoke to Matthew Moore about the importance of bookshops, why queer representation is so important in children’s books and about why I decided to write the Ministry of Unladylike Activity series after the end of the Murder Most Unladylike books. “It’s important to educate adults on what the stakes are here, it’s important to keep pointing out what it means to be queer, why queer role models need to be visible, and we need to be telling stories about queer people, because that is how we change minds. We need to have the courage of our convictio ..read more

I’m excited to say that The Body in the Blitz is publishing in paperback this October!

There will be two beautiful editions to choose from, one with yellow sprayed edges and then a special edition for independent bookstores with green sprayed edges and a die cut cover.
