This is the third and final installment of The Naming of Brook Storyteller, and Brook (Brat-Spellbinder-Dragonfriend-Wolftalker) has taken on an apprentice, Cricket; but deadly plots are all around and it takes all her cleverness and resilience to get to the bottom of it all, with a lot of help from Cricket, and her ‘cousin’, the wolf, Drinks-the-Wind.

An emotionally tense scene on a roof at night.
Thanks to Clapham Books for hosting. We may post some of the Q&A with a very chatty audience later, it’ll take a bit of editing!
With any book that involves adult relationships there is the thorny issue of how to depict intimate moments (she says coyly), this bit is introduced as ‘a bit of virginal fumbling’ so if that’s going to embarrass you, don’t listen. Not remotely raunchy. I don’t consider sex a spectator sport!
Once again, thanks to Joan and Thomas and everyone else at Lewisham Libraries for organising a great evening.
