H.L. Houghton remembers sitting on the floor with a little red typewriter, tapping keys and asking her mother for spellings. She was three years old and from that day to this, she has dreamed of writing wonderful things for others to read.

The first official book is currently in it's final edit stage and is temporarily called Arka... Read more of this blog post »

I wasn't sure what to expect with this book. My first impression was a zombie-non-zombie story but ARV-3 is so much more. For a start there are no zombies. The Arvies are genetically mutated humans. They live, they bleed and they can die but they are ...more

Diana Wynne Jones
“I think we ought to live happily ever after," and she thought he meant it. Sophie knew that living happily ever after with Howl would be a good deal more hair-raising than any storybook made it sound, though she was determined to try. "It should be hair-raising," added Howl.
"And you'll exploit me," Sophie said.
"And then you'll cut up all my suits to teach me.”
Diana Wynne Jones, Howl's Moving Castle

Laura Hillenbrand
“His books were the closest thing he had to furniture and he lived in them the way other men live in easy chairs.”
Laura Hillenbrand, Seabiscuit: An American Legend

message 1: by H.L.

H.L. I don't often do this on my own page but I NEED to recommend this book to you. I was lucky enough to read this before publishing and I have been eagerly awaiting it's official release because this is one of the funniest books I have read in AGES. It is hilarious, naughty, unexpected and with Bolouri's witty narrative is sure to have you giggling. And the best part? it is only 98p in Amazon at the moment....no excuses girls - The Kindle app is free!!!
