Although summer is my favourite season, I can’t deny that the beauty of autumn is a time of year that I love. I’m a sucker for autumnal book photos and I do a book glamour shot every year. As a psychological fiction and ghost horror author it goes without saying that I love Halloween, so I couldn’t pass up the chance to throw in a few seasonal glamour photos too. So, here goes:

A horror author and her novels

Isn’t this tree gorgeous? I took this photo last week before it lost all its leaves and they were so vivid against the twilight that I had to capture it. Here I am doing my witchy best.

What to do with all those stunning yellow leaves after they have dropped? Why, another book photo, of course:

Rolling around in yellow leaves with my books

Here I am with my books and autumn leaves. Gods of Avalon Road was my debut novel in 2019, followed by The Redundancy of Tautology (poetry) and The Buddha’s Bone (second novel) in 2021, then The Blue Man (third novel), A Model Archaeologist (poetry) and The Fairy Lights (fourth novel) in 2022.

I’m proud of all my books and I like each one more than the last. As soon as one is done, it’s onto another. There’s always a new story to tell.
