Alice lives in a converted chapel in Oxfordshire, England, with three cats and many house plants. She works as a writer, specialising in finance and travel. She was previously a journalist and TV presenter for Bloomberg before becoming press and PR director of a $1 billion US hedge fund for 18 months. That turned out to be the worst period in history for hedge funds, so she retired wounded. Alice has a degree in Maths from Bristol University – and half of a diploma in silversmithing from UCE University because it turns out that making the ladies’ version of the One Ring is a lot harder than she thought.

Alice’s first novel, Grave Secrets, is a whodunit with zombies, vampires, romance and croquet and you should definitely read it. Today.

"This book has it all!

I very rarely give such a high rating on books as there are usually typos, spacing issues, missed words or incorrect words. Sometimes there's a name mistake. This book was beyond lovely.

Often whoever markets books seems to be lying when they make their comparisons. In this case, however, it’s spot on. This definitely feels like Sookie Stackhouse meets Agatha Raisin.


The world that James has created is very similar to the Sooki

This book is just as much of a delight as the first in the trilogy. It's also beautifully ambitious in the way it threads Russian history through the mythology, and I really loved it. The feeling of cold, dark, numinous Russian woods is still there, ...more
