What Do You Do to Start Your Creative Day?

My writing day usually starts the moment I finish work. Before I get started, I like to go for a walk to clear my head. This will probably make any chiropractors reading this wince, but I can only write in bed! If it makes you feel better I use a bed desk. I love writing in my bed as it helps me to relax and slip into whatever I'm working on. I usually have a drink nearby (more often than not a coke), but apart from that my writing space is quite spartan as I tend to procrasinate if I have anything distracting nearby.

The stage is set and the witch-hunt is about to begin…

‘I am no witch. I have not sold my soul to the devil for powers. What I am has never openly been whispered of, yet it is enough that people would hang for it.’

England, 1645.
After his half-brother dies, aspiring playwright Nicholas Pearce is apprenticed to Judge William Percival, an infamous former witch-hunter who is under pressure to resume his old profession.

In a country torn apart by civil war, with escalating tensions between Catholics and Protestants, Royalists and Roundheads, and rumours of witchcraft, Nicholas hides a secret: the dead sing. He hears their secrets, but will he find the courage to speak up to save innocent lives, even if it means putting himself in great danger?

A spellbinding debut novel perfect for fans of Stacey Halls, Laura Purcell and Bridget Collins.
