At this in conversation event we will find out more about Isabel, she will share tips for writing and publication and talk about her latest book Homecoming.

Isabel’s writing career took off with her debut novel Glasshopper, which was twice named among the Best Books of the Year after winning first prize in a national writing competition. Since then, her thrillers Little Sister and Beautiful Liars have been shortlisted in the Dead Good Reader Awards, and 33 Women, was an Amazon bestseller within weeks of release.

Her latest book Homecoming “Welcome to The Starlings… sun, sea and neighbours to die for. Security, a sparkling sea view and the best kind of neighbours – The Starlings gated community has it all. Here, doors are left open, children run free, and at the heart of it all is the entrepreneurial Gold Family, who first dreamed up this aspirational vision of ‘Dorset’s Safest Community’. To the outside world the popular family appears glitteringly blessed… until an idyllic party takes a dark turn and one of their number is found slumped at the foot of the clocktower. Who knows what really happened? And what answers are harboured within the old building, the former Highcap Mother and Baby Home?’

A mesmerising, character-rich thriller with a long-buried secret vibrating at its core: this is Isabel Ashdown at her heart-stopping best, for readers who enjoyed Big Little Lies, Doctor Foster or Little Fires Everywhere.”
