Hello and welcome! You’ll find quite a few things on this blog, all to do with books and writing as I’m a writer.
Books reviews are here. (I’m also on Goodreads, where I review books as well, so please follow me there at my author page if that’s your interest.)
I’ve interviewed many writers, starting with Road Dahl, and you’ll find author interviews here.
My children’s novel THE KEEPER OF THE STONES is available now in the UK – if your bookshop doesn’t have it in stock, they’ll be able to order it for you. The same applies to my novel FAKE, contemporary fiction with a satirical twist. Both are also available online in the usual places.
REVIEWS AND SUMMARIES FOR MY BOOKS
FAKE “Hilarious…the dialogue is full of wit…written with charm and vitality. A clever, timely tale about desperate people maneuvering through a tricky situation.” – Kirkus Reviews
THE KEEPER OF THE STONES “Lizzie herself is brave and appealingly thoughtful…Kay’s writing is another pleasure, atmospheric and poetic…Both gripping and lyrical—a fine time-travel tale.” – Kirkus Reviews, starred review
“Not only is this book packed full of intrigue as Lizzie works to save her brother, it also quietly educates on archaeology and history…There’s strong description, good characterisation and humour to alleviate the tension throughout this adventure story.” – Indie Books We Love, LoveReading4Kids
“Absolutely gripping! My heart raced as I galloped along with Lizzie, and my brain whirled as I tried to unravel clues to the mysteries. The reading time flew by—as did time itself in this intriguing tale. Suspense, an occasional laugh, and many surprises … all here! I loved this book. So will you.” – Martha Kendall, Winner of Best Book for Young Adults, American Library Association.
In THE KEEPER OF THE STONES, a midnight ride to the stone circles on the family farm catapults Lizzie and her brother Daniel back to the Bronze Age. Trapped three thousand years ago, Lizzie must save Daniel and stop the Bullmaster before he destroys the Horse People and her family ceases to exist.
In FAKE, James Cowper – art dealer, gambler, thief – is going straight and on the brink of redeeming himself with his disillusioned wife, Imani. He’s still broke, but all he needs to take care of that is a rare art find. Then trouble arrives in the shape of a scheming landlord and an unwelcome dinner party with his boss. As events spin out of his control it appears that nobody, including Imani, is what they pretend. And over everything looms one make-or-break question for James: can he get a grip on his exploding life?
