Petra Jacob had her first book, Riddled with Senses, published by Dr Cicero Books last year. It's a magic realism tale of love, drugs and witchcraft.
She has just self-published the book Peddling Doomsday, which is about a cult run by a charismatic female leader.

Many years ago she obtained a first for writing and art from Manchester Metropolitan University. During her haphazard life she's lived in
“As we charge the night we leer at pedestrians, the harder I stare, the faster they walk and we skip and jive in their shadows. They pull their coats round as a barrier, faces burning, I could crush their bones in the treads of my trainers, but I let them scamper away. We collect items to aid us in our quest, a shopping trolley, a brick, a single shoe. One petulant husk mutters,
