Cole is the boy who fooled the world. Now he’s trapped in a web of lies. Get ready for @lthompsonwrites' brand new novel #TheBoyWhoFooledTheWorld. Coming soon!

The brilliant @djy_writer is one of the best historical crime authors writing today, and #StasiWinter is up there with his very finest. Finished copies now fresh in from the printer and looking very nice/cold indeed - out Jan 2020!

So great to have brilliant @lthompsonwrites in the office to meet her brand new book The Boy Who Fooled the World. Out 2nd January!

These promo tours are arduous and relentless and often thankless @ajridgeley @PFDAgents

So excited for The Boy Who Fooled the World by ace @lthompsonwrites this January - a story of fame and fortune and being true to yourself.

Wrap up well ... winter's coming. Not just any winter, this is #StasiWinter from @ZaffreBooks due 9.1.20. Here's the cover. Pre-order now!

Can I just say a HIGE congratulations to brilliant author and brilliant friend @lthompsonwrites who is SHORTLISTED for the #BluePeterBookAwards 2020! Lisa, you’re a star, and I’m so proud to be on your team ❤️
