Proudest achievements to date – Crooked Step

As per title, after the release of Crooked Step in ebook format, I’m proud to present two great achievements:

1. My husband has finished reading it, and he hasn’t asked for a divorce just yet.

2. I’ve received two reviews, one on the UK Amazon site, and one on the German! (Thank you to both readers – I really appreciate your feedback.) 

The paperback version is almost ready, as is the placeholder website. Hoping to be in touch with more bonus material soon!

As she can’t just chuck it in the bin (zombies don’t qualify for Hackney Council’s bulky waste collection), she must find out who and why with the help of her classmates.
