Hello and welcome to the research blog for My Sister’s Bones. The novel will be published by Penguin Viking in Spring 2017. The research into the novel was sponsored by Arts Council England.
My Sister’s Bones tells the story of Kate Rafter, a troubled war reporter who has just been through a harrowing ordeal in Syria. When her mother dies she returns to her childhood home, a place her estranged sister has never left, and becomes convinced there’s a crime being committed in the house next door. As Kate struggles with the horrors of her past, we are led to question the validity of her claims and ask if what we are seeing is but a strange trick of the eye.
This blog documents both my research for My Sister’s Bones and the creative process involved in writing a novel.
