The nitty-gritty: A dark retelling of Peter Pan, steeped in loss and heartbreak, with thrilling action and lots of surprises. We were still children, for all that we thought we weren’t. We were in that in-between place, the twilight between childish things and grown-up things. Childhood still held out a friendly hand to us, if […]

The nitty-gritty: A visceral and bloody tale of a power struggle between two vampires. On the train, in the tunnels, it is quiet. Nearly last train. Everyone is detritus. As is she. She closes her eyes and floats. Her hands are getting colder. Her heart feels weak. Her wrist aches. Throbs. Insistently. She goes to […]

The nitty-gritty: A delicious mashup of classic horror literature featuring a wonderfully lively cast of female characters. It was a strange experience, dressing as a man. Everything felt different, everything buttoned a different way. But when she had put on the shirt and trousers, she realized what freedom they would give her. How easily she […]

And because I’m no longer doing my monthly Book Review Giveaway, I’m going to use this post […]

The nitty-gritty: A big, bold and hysterically funny multi-generational family drama, with psychics and con men, and plenty of unexpected heart. It was true that he was unusually nostalgic for a kid, though what he pined for was a time before he was born. He was haunted by the feeling that he’d missed the big […]

Big thanks to Wunderkind PR and Serial Box for the chance to review this hysterically funny and geeky series! When I was first pitched Geek Actually, the latest from the innovative folks at Serial Box, I was a little hesitant. After all, the covers scream “Contemporary chick lit!” which is definitely not my thing. But […]
