Into the Fire
INTO THE FIRE is the culmination of a fourteen year writing apprenticeship. This podcast looks at how I came to find the truth behind the myth of Jeanne d’Arc, how it merges with a contemporary thriller and how each thread fed into the other.
FINDING THE SONG IN THE STONES is the story of how the Boudica: Dreaming series came about, from a first, magical visit to the Brochs that opened new doors and how, many years later, an encounter with a hare sparked the books into being.

So today, publication day, I got to meet one of my all time super-heroes – and she was every bit as amazing as I’d imagined… which is really rather wonderful. Samira Ahmed is charming, intelligent, thoughtful – and she liked the book. Doesn’t get much better than that.
