Talk at Bury Library

reading I’m proud of my Bury roots and will be reading from and discussing my recently published book, Trembleath, at Bury Library on Thursday 30 January, 7pm. I will also be selling copies of the book along with special edition items including Vervain and Valerian seeds which feature in the novel.

Trembleath is the first of a paranormal series following the story of Amelia Scott, a young woman who is re-building her life in Cornwall following a disastrous relationship. It was going to be an adventure, but with news of a young girl found dead and another goes missing, she quickly begins to learn there is more to Creek Bay than she could ever imagine. A village hiding a dark secret, two families at war, newcomer Amelia Scott gets caught up in a murder investigation with dire consequences.

Find out about my inspiration behind the location of Trembleath in this article at TripFiction as part of their #TalkingLocationWith series.

I first visited Cornwall at the age of 21 and fell in love with her charm, beauty and magic. There is something powerful about the ocean that I am drawn to; the sheer power behind the gravitational pull of the waters and her unchartered depths is captivating. Whilst visiting the many towns of the Cornish coast throughout the years, I found a raw beauty in the makeup of its inhabitants and the stories they have to tell. There are many local legends and urban myths held in this quaint part of the UK that are equally fascinating and disturbing, their links to a rich history of Pagan festivities that are celebrated to this day was inherently going to grab my attention. So it was to a hike on the moors that sealed the fate of my story and Trembleath was born. My heart will always belong to Cornwall.
