Kate Forrester Kate Forrester's blog:

As someone who works primarily on a small scale – book covers, packaging etc – it was daunting and very exciting to be given the opportunity to design something which was to cover hundreds of square feet of wall space. The main challenge for this design was to come up with a way to include such...

MAGPIE MURDERS is really two books in one. Author Alan Conway is a character in a book he has written with the same name.

As a writer, I’m often asked where I get my inspirations from. The simple answer is that inspirations come from everywhere! For me, usually a book will start out with just a simple idea or image. For my new book Finding Dreams, I was inspired when a real-life film scout came to a village near whe... Read more of this blog post »

34,500-odd words in and this, my fifth go at a novel*, still looks like it's going to come in somewhere between the fifty and sixty thousand word mark. Short, compared with 'Both' and 'Kingswinford Sunset' but, in my experience, ideal for a piece of concept-driven SF, which is what this is, despi... Read more of this blog post »

But the Virgo aspect of my personality is very logical and rational. I guess you could say I'm well balanced. ;) Bot...

I love mysteries. Nothing is more fun than becoming one of my favorite detectives with a good puzzle to solve. I know that most crime is uncomplicated. The bulk of it is stupid, banal, and squalid.
