We are thrilled to be chatting with YA author Clare Owen whose first young adult book, Zed and the Cormorants, is released this week. Zed and the Cormorants is set near Lostwithiel, so we couldn't wait to learn more about this stirring gothic debut that's been described as 'a Daphne Du Maurier for the 21st century'.
Today, to mark the release of A Cornish Promise, author Terri Nixon shares with us her insights into her writing career, what she wishes she'd known before getting published, and reveals some top tips for writers setting out on their writing journey. Terri has written several books spanning fiction to non-fiction, but feels most at home when writing historical fiction. Her latest release, A Cornish Promise, is out this week.
Today, we welcome historical fiction author Victoria Cornwall to the Lost in Books blog. Victoria invites readers to step into her world featuring vivid romantic heroines and the problems they encounter, all set against the magnificent backdrops of Cornwall.

This week, we are delighted to interview local author Amanda James, who has written over 15 books and never seems to run out of ideas.

Her latest novel, The Cornish Connection, a psychic detective thriller set in Padstow, is out now - and we have a feeling readers won't be left disappointed.
