Trapeze Snaps Up ‘Jawdropping’ Thriller from Ashdown

I’m over the moon to share the news that I’ll be working on two new thrillers with the team at Trapeze and Orion Publishing – the first being LAKE CHILD, described by editorial director Sam Eades as ‘Flowers in the Attic meets BBC’s The Missing‘.  Sam went on to say:

“Working with Isabel Ashdown has been a dream come true and I’m thrilled our partnership will continue. Not only is she a brilliant writer, but she is a huge supporter of other authors and has been with Trapeze since launch.  Lake Child is a gripping and claustrophobic family drama, set in a stunning remote location and filled with Isabel’s trademark jawdropping twists and turns.”

I couldn’t be happier to be continuing my writing career with the Orion family, as I told The Bookseller: “Characters – and relationships – are at the heart of my writing inspirations, and together with my agent Kate Shaw, Sam has championed my desire to keep pushing the boundaries of this fascination.”  Read the full article here.

Warmest thanks to my wonderful agent Kate and my awesome editor Sam, and to everyone who has supported me along the way – publishers old and new, readers, colleagues, family and friends – your encouragement has made all the difference.

Lake Child will be released in 2019 (Trapeze).

New Isabel Ashdown novel announced for 2017

Trapeze logo #2We are delighted to reveal news of the forthcoming novel from Isabel Ashdown, recently announced in a two-book deal with Trapeze, the exciting new imprint from The Orion Publishing Group.

Sam Eades, senior commissioning editor at Orion said of the acquisition: ‘The complex relationship between sisters continues to fascinate readers, from Rosamund Lupton’s Sister to SK Tremayne’s The Ice Twins. A sister can be our closest friend, and also our deadliest enemy. What is so clever about Little Sister is that Isabel Ashdown offers something fresh and distinctive. She pairs an unforgettable premise with two intriguing narrative voices that will have readers hooked from the very first page. I’m delighted to have signed Isabel Ashdown to new imprint Trapeze, and she has lots of in-house fans who can’t wait to see what she will write next!’
