Yes, I'm hoping it's a topic that most people will be able to identify with. It's going to be called The Devil's Work and I'm editing it at the moment.

The Magpies is the book that changed my life because it sold so well and allowed me to become a full-time writer, so that one will always be special. But I think Follow You Home is a better book.

Of my co-written books, my favourite is From the Cradle. (less)

Mark Edwards and 202 other people liked Chelsea Humphrey's review of The Retreat:
The Retreat by Mark  Edwards
"Mark Edwards is an author I've been following for years, and I've come to anticipate his certain brand of thrilling and chilling fiction with gusto each year in the release of his latest novel. The Retreat was a bit of a departure from his last novel" Read more of this review »

The Retreat by Mark  Edwards
No. As in all my books, there are hints of supernatural events but there is a rational explanation for everything.

This is not the first I've read of Mark Edwards' books ... but it is the best! Reminds me a bit of a horror story within a horror story .. although this isn't really a horror story at all.

“She took out an Ian McEwan book, flicked through it and said, ‘I love this. I can’t bear people who don’t read. I think they must have something wrong with them, don’t you?’ ‘I guess so.’ ‘Books, music, art, films.’ She held up her glass. ‘Good wine. It’s what life’s all about.’ I held up my own glass. ‘To books, music, art, films and wine.”
Mark Edwards, Because She Loves Me

“Every dark space felt threatening, as if it contained and concealed something horrifying. My imagination filled in the details that my eyes couldn’t see, not just memories from a hundred horror movies and books, but something deeper in my brain, a line that stretched back thousands of years, fear of the dark woods hard-wired into me.”
Mark Edwards, Follow You Home

“We used to say that we loved each other but, looking back, I think we said it more because we felt we should.”
Mark Edwards, Because She Loves Me
