We’re delighted to announce that Editorial Director Emily Gowers has acquired World All Language rights, including film and TV, for three books in a new cosy crime series by award-winning author Kate Hardy. When Georgie Drake, 52, widowed, and deaf, finds a dead academic in her holiday rental, she’s thrust headfirst into a shocking mystery! The Body in Rookery Barn will be published in October, with two more cunning mysteries to follow…

Kate says,

“I’m so thrilled to be working with Storm on the Georgie Drake series – I’m having so much fun exploring a different strand of my writing, and I’m delighted that Emily’s going to be my ‘partner in crime’ as my editor!”

Emily says,

“There’s no better feeling than cosying up with a compelling mystery and a cast of delightful characters. Kate is brimming with ideas and her enthusiasm shines through her writing – October cannot come soon enough!”

For more information on Kate, follow her on twitter, Instagram, Facebook or on her website.
