Fingers crossed it doesn't! I've had crises of confidence, but carried on writing through them I think that writing is very much like playing the violin. The more you do it, the better you get.(less)

It's always lovely to have someone email me to say they've enjoyed one of my books. I don't think that feeling ever goes away. After all, I write books to entertain people. If they do, I'm thrilled.(less)

It's been a good news day so far, which leaves me wondering what will go wrong, to redress the balance! My agent Teresa emailed to say that Harper Collins plan to publish books 4 and 5 in my Alice Quentin series in the USA. It feels like a real honour, as they publish a huge range of great authors. So, I'm just a little bit stunned. The other good news is that my husband Dave has a read through... Read more of this blog post »

“The Thames is in many respects the river of the dead. It has the power to hurt and to kill.’ Peter Ackroyd, Thames: Sacred River”
Kate Rhodes, The girl in the river

“Your mother is holding your hand too tightly. You whimper and cling to her dress, because you know what will happen next. She stares at you, as if she's forgotten how to blink. There's one last glimpse of her face before she bundles you into the cupboard under the stairs. 'Don't make a sound,' she hisses, 'don't even breathe.' Darkness smothers you as the key twists in the lock. There's a chance that he won't find you, cowering on the floor, between the broom and floor mops, a stack of wellington boots.”
Kate Rhodes, Crossbones Yard

“Describing a hole in your life doesn't make it vanish, it just makes it deeper than before.”
Kate Rhodes, Hell Bay
