Book Review: Our Doris by Charles Heathcote

It has been a long time since I posted a book review on my blog, but here is one that is truly worthy of sharing. I recently met some wonderful local authors at a library event that I attended, and now I would like to introduce you to Charles Heathcote

Our Doris is hilarious! I was hooked right from the first page, as I read about tales of marital woe, and bliss, as told by the long suffering husband, Harold. What I loved most about this book is the fact that I could relate entirely to all of the characters, because I saw them in older people from my own life throughout the years. If you need a comparison, I would say that Doris reminds me of Hyacinth Bucket from the television sitcom Keeping Up Appearances.

I chuckled and laughed all the way through this book, but there was a curious quirk that I developed. Doris Copeland is a very challenging woman to read about. I could only read one chapter at a time, because any more than that was just a bit too much for me to take in. That to me is a sign of bloody good writing.

5 stars all the way, and more!

Coming Soon: The Vampire of Blackpool by Catherine Green

I have some exciting news! My next novel is finally ready to publish. It is has been very long in the process, mainly due to the fact that I had my second baby just under 3 years ago, and I have been more than a little distracted by motherly duties. Well, I never stopped writing, and very soon you can see the finished result. The Vampire of Blackpool is available for preorder right now, go and get it!

Meredith Hanson lives in Blackpool, the former Victorian holiday hotspot of Northern England. She masquerades as a reclusive author, feeding on the blood of unsuspecting tourists without remorse. Her life takes on new meaning when she meets a young witch in a local pub one evening. Despite Meredith’s cold demeanour, she finds herself oddly fascinated with Samantha Morris, and falls into an accidental relationship with the girl. It is at this time that a vampire hunter arrives in Blackpool. He is tough, he is determined, and his next target is an ancient vampire that has been spotted in the tourist town. He intends to bring her down and destroy her to save the lives of innocent humans. Will he succeed? Or will the experienced vampire seductress be the cause of his undoing? 

In the meantime you can read my brand new contemporary adult fairytale: The Wolf and the Fairy. Available to download now in most digital formats.

The Wolf and the Fairy: A Contemporary Adult Fairytale

I just released a new short story! The Wolf and the Fairy is a contemporary adult fairytale that I submitted to a competition but was unsuccessful with. I did, however, really enjoy the finished product, and so here it is for the world to see. Please do leave a review and tell me what you think. Thanks!

She is a werewolf hunter, descended from ancient fairies, destined to fulfill her role in the family business. He is a lone wolf, his family brutally torn away, revenge his motivation for existence. The fairy and the wolf come together in a violent union as this modern, adult fairy tale gives us an alternative account of life in ancient Britain, and how it has evolved in the present day.
