We’re (Gaslight Crime) delighted to bring you an interview with writer Jan Edwards, author of the newly published historical crime novel Winter Downs.
I absolutely loved Winter Downs, which takes place in a fascinating time in a lovely part of Sussex that Kipling called our blunt, blow-headed, whale-backed Downs. The perfect setting for the first novel in an atmospheric new crime series. If you enjoy classic, Golden Age style whodunits with engaging sleuths, a twisting plot and a wonderful sense of place – you’re in for a great treat.
Here’s Jan to tell us about Winter Downs and her writing process…
Some time ago I wrote a book called Sex, Lies and Family Ties, which was a fictional account of a teenage girl coming to terms with her dysfunctional roots and resultant abuse, and her rising above it all as a stronger woman. International Women’s Day seems as good a day as any to give Sex, Lies and Family Ties –with its fabulous cover designed by the inimitable Steve Upham – one final airing before it goes out of print, so this is your final chance to buy before its O/P date at the end of this month.
Available from Amazon in paper and kindle format. Here
