Spotlight on: JO LAMBERT

Today I’m delighted to join in celebrating the publication of Jo Lambert’s new novel A Cornish Affair. Set in North Cornwall, this is Jo’s eighth novel, all superbly written and most enjoyable reads, but her first since signing with publishers Choc Lit under their Ruby imprint.

Having read all of Jo’s previous work, I know I’m in for a good read.

A CORNISH AFFAIR

Even in your hometown, you can feel like an outsider …

In the close-knit community of Carrenporth in Cornwall everyone knows everyone else’s business. Luke Carrack is only too aware of this. He’s been away for two years but nothing has changed – from the town gossips who can’t see past the scandal of his childhood, to the cold way he is treated by some of his so-called family.
The only person who seems to understand is local hotelier’s daughter Cat Trevelyan, although even Luke’s new friendship with her could set tongues wagging.
But Carrenporth is about to experience far bigger scandals than the return of Luke Carrack – and the secrets unearthed in the process will shake the sleepy seaside town to its core…

Spotlight on: GILLI ALLAN

I’m delighted today to announce the publication of Gilli Allan’s sixth novel: Buried Treasure.

There is an interesting and intriguing mystery in Gilli’s family that in part inspired this novel, one that gives extra life and credence to the plot.

 

BURIED TREASURE

Their backgrounds could hardly be further apart, their expectations in life more different. And there is nothing in the first meeting between the conference planner and the university lecturer which suggests they should expect or even want to connect again. But they have more in common than they could ever have imagined. Both have unresolved issues from the past which have marked them; both have an archaeological puzzle they want to solve. Their stories intertwine and they discover together that treasure isn’t always what it seems.

I’ve known Gilli for many years, having first met her through the RNA Bristol Chapter way back in what must have been circa 2000, and having read and enjoyed all her previous books, I know I am in for a great read, also because it has an extra interest for me in that it revolves around archaeology, a subject I love and a theme central in my own recently published novel White Stones.

Bio

Born in Kent, her hobby was writing, but her ambition was to be a commercial artist. After art school she found work as an advertising illustrator.

With marriage and the arrival of her son, a reassessment of priorities was needed. Gilli gave up the stressful world of advertising and although she’d not written since teenage, she decided to “write a novel”. Even though it was the first she had ever finished, the resulting book quickly found a publisher.  Gilli produced the cover artwork. Sadly, after publishing two of her books, the small independent publisher folded.

Now living in Gloucestershire, Gilli joined the RNA. She continued to write unconventional contemporary relationship fiction. Having failed to find a new publisher for her own idiosyncratic “take” on romance, and with the advent of the e-book revolution, she self-published three books. She was delighted when she was contracted to Accent Press and those books were republished.

Art remains an interest and in recent years, Gilli has taken on various illustration commissions.

The biggest joy and reward in the life of Gilli and her husband Geoff is that their historian son – Thomas Williams – has successfully taken up the writing baton.
