My exclusive Christmas short story, Norwegian Fireflies, was published in last week’s Sunday Express. If you missed it and fancy a warm wintry tale set in the heart of Norway’s atmospheric forests and fjords, you can read the story here.

I’m over the moon to tell you that Lake Child has been listed in Red Magazine’s Top Ten Best Crime and Thriller Novels this autumn, alongside Ann Cleeves, Katherine Webb, Jessica Fellowes, Stephen Chbosky, Nicci French, Caroline Corcoran, Joanna Jolly, Jenny Blackhurst and Catriona McPherson.
Already it’s been listed in Red magazine’s ‘Best Crime & Thriller Novels this Autumn’, and has been spotted in Waterstones, Tesco stores and independent booksellers across the country. Thank you to my ace agent Kate, my publishing heroes at Trapeze and everyone who cheered me on at my hometown launch in Waterstones, Chichester (hosted by the brilliant Ollie) – and to all of you out there buying, reading and sharing the book. Huge gratitude to Tracy Fenton and the Compulsive Readers, who championed a fabulous blog tour of reviews and features. My readers are the ones who really keep me writing, so big love to you! And please do keep the reviews coming in on Amazon – ratings really do help to spread the word for new books.
As is my annual (and very refreshing!) habit, I’ll be shutting down my social media for four weeks this Summer, until Monday 30th August.
There’s a lot going on behind the scenes in the run-up to the release of my new thriller Lake Child, so here’s a handy list of links to help you navigate your way around what’s happening and when!
See you soon!
I’m pleased to announce that I’ll be hosting a creative writing workshop in conjunction with Vaguely Sunny this autumn, in Sandown on the Isle of Wight, a place close to my heart. As many of my readers know, the island plays a strong role in several of my novels, and it continues to be a source of inspiration and welcome retreat.
This short workshop is for writers of any level – just come prepared to write, relax, join in and enjoy!
Spaces are limited, so if you like the look of it, book soon via Vic King on 01983 730930.
