Becky Alexander’s debut psychological thriller, The Actress, has been acquired by Storm Publishing. Publisher Kathryn Taussig agreed a deal for World English rights for two books with Charlie Campbell of Greyhound Literary Agents.
Alexander, who is currently a Senior Acquisitions Editor in the DK division of Penguin Random House, has been an editor for over twenty years. Her debut psychological thriller, The Actress, follows aspiring actress Jemima who gets swept into the orbit of rich, successful theatre producer Rebecca. There she gets a taste of the fame she’s always craved… but at what price?
“I chose Storm to publish my debut novel because their entrepreneurial, dynamic approach appeals to me, and I’m delighted to be one of Kathryn’s first authors. I can’t wait for my ruthless, ambitious characters to take to the stage in The Actress.”
“Becky’s characters are complex and fascinating – they just draw you in from page one – and her writing is not only gripping, but also beautifully crafted. With this novel, Becky proves that she’s a rising star in the world of psychological thrillers. We’re confident that readers will be captivated by Jemima’s journey and the dark world of fame she finds herself in. This acquisition cements Storm Publishing’s commitment to bringing readers the best in thrilling suspense fiction.”
