A life in the spotlight will keep anyone hidden. Julia Pastrana is the singing and dancing marvel from Mexico. She is heralded across nineteenth-century Europe as much for her talent as for her unusual looks. Yet few can see past her freakish appearance to the ambitious woman within. Orphans of the Carnival sweeps us from the music halls of Vienna to an attic in modern-day South London, playing out an epic tale of grit, love, music and the triumph of the human spirit pushed to extremes.

'Gritty and lively... a colourful depiction of 17th century France' – CAROL BIRCH, author of Jamrach's Menagerie A SPELLBINDING TALE SET IN CARDINAL RICHELIEU'S FRANCE With enemies advancing on all sides and Cardinal Richelieu's health failing, France is at breaking point. Yet salvation may arrive in the most unlikely form... Born into poverty and with terrible deformities, Sebastian Morra is a dwarf with the wit of Tyrion Lannister and three foot, four inches of brazen pluck. Through a mixture of brains and luck, he has travelled far from his village to become a jester at the royal court. And with a talent for making enemies, he is soon drawn into the twilight world of Cardinal Richelieu, where he discovers he might just be the only man with the talents to save France from her deadliest foes. 'Intelligent, cunning and occasionally reckless, Sebastian Morra lights up The Cardinal's Man with his zest for survival. The excesses and squalor of 17th century France are brought viscerally and vividly to life in this engaging, beautifully researched novel' VICTORIA BLAKE, author of The Return of the Courtesan

'Funny. Revealing. Wonderful.' Maureen Lipman ___________________________________________ Andrew Williams. Mavis and Syd's boy. Hasn't he done well? Blooming business, lovely wife, beautiful kids, bloody great house. What more could he possible want? And then, an old photo turns up and Andrew's whole world is turned upside down. A story of lost love and lost bearings, 'A Poloroid of Peggy' is 'Bonfire of the Vanities' meets 'Love Story', with a dash of 'Mad Men' thrown in. Funny and poignant by turns, it asks the most fundamental of questions: what really matters in life? And finds the answer is distinctly - muddled. ____________________________________________ 'Richard Phillips is good on nostalgia, guilt, the emotional messes people make, and the play-acting involved in both the building up or breaking down of a relationship, but the main strength of the book lies in the portrayal of the central character, a superficially shallow man desperately trying to paper over the black holes appearing through the old wallpaper of his life. Cynic and romantic, confident and adman, bag of nerves, he is believably ambiguous and skilfully realised, as is the slow build of his obsession with the eponymous Peggy, whose twenty-year-old photo, randomly found in the pocket of an old jacket, triggers a crisis on levels both existential and material.' Carol Birch, author of 'Jamrach's Menagerie', shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize 2012
