There’s an interview with me on Criminal E here .

And another to appear shortly on the Amazon Kindle blog here . 


The Donor is now on the shelves – check it out in the WH Smith charts and in Sainsbury’s (Summer Reading) and Tesco’s (Books we Love). My publisher tells me the paperback and the e-book are selling like mad (currently number 91  in contemporary Fiction on Amazon Kindle). Happy happy.


I can’t quite believe this, but in the editing frenzy I forgot to write an acknowledgements page for The Donor.  

You all know who you are – thanks!


The producers of the film adaptation of The Devil’s Staircase (Synchronicity Films, Macgowan Films and Del Rio Films) are still looking for a new title. Please submit your ideas in the comments section below or on twitter  @SynchronicityF or @fitzhelen. The best entry wins a very exciting prize (a copy of the book, signed by me).
