Close to Girona...

I am delighted to have been invited back to 'Booklovers' at 7 Day Wonder Holidays. The week will be from 3rd -10th September this year and in Spain, close to Girona, and it promises to be a wonderful few days in a gorgeous location - as you can see.

It would be for me the perfect holiday: books, together with other people who love books - with plenty of room to mingle or not as you please. As a previous guest said: '...very relaxing while stimulating at the same time.'

This year Lee has invited three other novelists - two thriller writers and a horror writer - so I'm really looking forward to sampling their books in the next few months. They all sound excellent - and very exciting.

Here are the short biographies of the other guests.

Ann Cleeves has written over 23 novels. Her novel Raven Black won the coveted and prestigious Duncan Lawrie Dagger award and her books have been translated into 16 languages. Ann lives in Tyneside. Featured book: Blue Lightning.

Charles Lambert was born in Lichfield in 1953. After brief periods in Ireland, Portugal and London he settled in Italy in 1976. His debut novel, Little Monsters was for John Harding, of the Daily Mail, 'beautifully written and crafted, and more compelling than many thrillers.' Featured book: Any Human Face.

Adam Nevill lives and works in London. His debut novel was titled Banquet for the Damned: 'pleasingly steeped in genre, yet he consciously tries to swirl in something new.' He is considered in the industry to be 'one of horror's rising stars.' Featured Book: Apartment 16.

Really, what a fabulous idea! You will have fun and make some devoted new readers, too, I imagine.

Thanks Marly -- not sure about the devoted readers, but hoping one or two will like my style.
