We’re thrilled to announce that Editorial Director Emily Gowers has acquired World All Language rights, including film and TV, for three books in Amanda Ashby’s The Widows’ Detective Club cosy crime series. When Ginny Cole moves to the quaint village of Little Shaw, she hopes to make new friends, but never dreams that they’ll cement their friendship by solving a murder!

Amanda says,

“I’m so thrilled to be working with Emily and the entire team at Storm on this new series. I grew up on a diet of Trixie Belden and Nancy Drew and have long wanted to write cozy mysteries, so being able to do that with Storm is a very special to me.’

Emily says,

“Amanda is an incredible storyteller and I am beyond excited to be working with her on this new series. Her characters are warm, funny and relatable, and her brilliant plotting will keep readers glued to the page. I’ve felt a real creative buzz from our calls and am so excited to get to work on these books!”

For more information on Amanda, find her on Instagram, Facebook or at her website.
