Sssh – it’s a Valentine’s Day Secret…

I’ve written about my fascination with the inextricability of stories many times, and my debut novel, The (D)Evolution of Us, was an exercise in conveying it. That, and the Butterfly Effect. I’ve mentioned Glasshouse a few times, too, and the fact that it is the next novel in the series. Well, Glasshouse will be published soon, again by #darkstroke, and I wanted to give those of you who look at my website a heads-up!

Glasshouse doesn’t so much follow TDofU as run alongside it. And it stands alone as a story, so you don’t have to have read the first to understand the second. If you want to read one at random and forget the rest, fine. However, all the stories I have planned for this series are set at the same time – the UK in the late 1990s – and involve interconnections of characters. For example, Glasshouse explains why Dr Whittle was ‘unavailable’ at the time of Kayleigh’s Section in TDofU, although Kayleigh herself isn’t central to the story. You get an insight into other events that ripple outwards and affect characters throughout the series. All the stories stand alone, but are inextricable from each other. Art imitating life. Unless it’s all one and the same.

Watch out for the pre-order date for Glasshouse. It won’t be long…

When Morwenna Blackwood was six years old, she got told off for filling a school exercise book with an endless story when she should have been listening to the teacher/eating her tea/colouring with her friends. The story was about a frog. It never did end; and Morwenna never looked back. Born and raised in Devon, Morwenna suffered from severe OCD and depression, and spent her childhood and teens in libraries. She travelled about for a decade before returning to Devon. She now has an MA in Creative Writing from the University of Exeter, and lives with her husband, son and three cats in a cottage that Bilbo Baggins would be proud of. Morwenna is the author of bestselling noir psychological thrillers, The (D)Evolution of Us, and Glasshouse, published by #darkstroke. She has just submitted her third novel, Underrated, and the fourth is in progress. When she is not writing, Morwenna works for an animal rescue charity, or can be found down by the sea. She often thinks about that frog.
