Here’s a thing I wrote about my time as writer in residence at a funeral directors for The i newspaper.
The book has had rave reviews on its blog tour, huge thanks to all the book bloggers who are taking part.
A Dark Matter was a Star Pick for The Times Crime Club, The Sunday Express, Lovereading and others.
And here’s a lovely review in The Guardian courtesy of Laura Wilson, and another by Kerry Hudson in The Big Issue.
A DARK MATTER is out today, gang! Three generations of women from the Skelf family take over the family funeral home and PI businesses in the first book of a page-turning and darkly funny new series.

Lovely review for the book in today’s Guardian, courtesy of Laura Wilson: ‘This enjoyable mystery is also a touching and often funny portrayal of grief, as the three tough but tender main characters pick up the pieces and carry on: more, please.’
