The publication date for Zed and the Cormorants (delayed because of Covid 19) is now April 29th 2021 and at last... I'm delighted to reveal the cover, illustrated by Klara Smith. You can see more of her beautiful paper cut work at www.klarasmith.com. Inside the book there are also illustrations by Sally Atkins www.sallyatkinsartist.co.uk and the origami chapter headings are by David Anstey. Endorsements include: 'A Daphne du Maurier for the 21st Century' - Piers Torday, 'Full of mystery and enchantment' - Sophia Bennett and 'In the spirit of Joan Aiken, and just as gothic, a roller coast read which will haunt you!' - Lizza Aiken.
