As it is #WorldBookDay, is there a better time to officially announce my next novel?
I’m delighted that my story ‘Mablethorpe’ will be published by the wonderful Rudling House later this year.
Mablethorpe, Lincolnshire, Halloween 1983. Eight year old local boy Aidan Truscott goes missing, without a trace; as the search begins and continues, the once tight-knit community begins to reveal its suspicions and point fingers, unravelling hurtful secrets and accusations. The truth, however, is far worse than anyone could have imagined.
After the wonderful feedback for my debut novel ‘Coal House’ (a scenic horror itself) I was inspired to finally write a story that has been in my head for a while. Mablethorpe is a quintessential English seaside town; as anyone who read Coal House will attest, I enjoy taking these romantic and idyllic memories and imposing the dark sense of isolation and suspense on to them.
I’m so delighted to have agreed to bring this book to you with Rudling House and I can’t wait for it to be released!
