We are thrilled to share the news that Storm has signed four psychological thrillers from self-published author Deirdre Palmer. Publisher Kathryn Taussig acquired World rights, including Film and Television, to four standalone psychological thrillers by the author. The first book will publish in June 2023, with the next three novels released throughout that year into early 2024.

The first book follows Fran, who made the biggest mistake of her life when she had an affair with Ben, the handsome father of her daughter’s best friend. Both families live in the village, and Fran feels like she can’t escape what she did. Then she discovers a link between a woman who fell to her death at a nearby quarry and Ben. Could he have been involved in what happened to her?

Deirdre says,

“I’m really happy to be joining Storm, and to be coming in on the ground floor of this innovative new venture. Kathryn has the knack of coaxing out plot ideas I didn’t know were there, and bringing out the best in my writing. I feel in safe hands, which is so important.  My contract with Storm has brought new focus to my writing, and I can’t wait for my books to reach a whole new set of readers.  Exciting times ahead!”

Kathryn says,

“Deirdre has an amazing gift for bringing here characters to life in a way that captivates and engages her readers. Her compelling plots kept me on the edge of my seat, desperate to find out what happened next. Her writing is a true joy to read, and I can’t wait to bring her books to a bigger, international audience!”
