I'm delighted to announce that my third novel is now published by Blue Door Press and I've had this wonderful review from Helen Dunmore.
“I loved the setting, with the prowling sea, the studio, the house where Lydia has made her retreat. Lydia is a woman who has been burned by the intensity of the spotlight and knows that it isn't safe for her to stay in it. But she is still fully alive as an artist. Most striking is her energy, the way she lives from an inviolable creative core, her survivor's instincts. Taking In Water is thoughtful, sensuous and so illuminating about what makes an artist and what can destroy her. I was completely caught up in it.” Helen Dunmore.
