This week I have been hard at work on my fourth novel, Sepultura. It is the sequel to my black comedy, Necropolis.
I have also written the sixth instalment in my series; authors and the desserts that in my opinion they/their writing corresponds to. Here are 8 authors and their corresponding desserts.
