Folkestone Book Festival

I will be at the Folkestone Book Festival, giving a talk on my particular inspiration for my books, which do blend mythology and alternate history. The tickets have gone on sale now for £5 (for the authors' talks) and are selling fast. It will be wonderful to have some familiar faces there as well:)

Review of The Ninth Wind

This book can best be described as a labour of love. You feel it, reading it. A lot of time, thought and emotion has gone into it. The characters and cultures are diverse, complex and well-presented, the language lyrical.

There is a lot of philosophical discourse in this book, musings on fate, the will of the gods, human choice and responsibilities, all of which makes the book a pleasure to read, but not one that a reader can whizz through. It is best savoured slowly, with thought given to the dilemmas facing the key characters, all of whom have suffered great loss and wish to do the best for their people.

It is the sort of book I love and can appreciate the skill and dedication of the author. I look forward to reading what happens next.
