Debbie Howells



Sussex Life August 2015 issue features an interview with debut author Debbie Howell

Sussex Life – Debbie Howells is interviewed in the August 2015 edition of Sussex Life Magazine.

The Guardian – Debbie and her agent Juliet were interviewed in the Guardian on Sunday 19th July on toxic family dynamics. Said Debbie: “All families are a little bit dysfunctional and so that’s easy to relate to in a novel,” she says. “With The Bones of You I really wanted to look at the difference between our first impressions of people and what actually goes on. We’re all inherently nosey and keen to find out what happens behind closed doors.”

Mumsnet – The Bones of You is a featured debut on Mumsnet and Debbie gives her tips for debut authors – you can apply for an advance copy to review, as well.


Woman and Home August 2015 recommends The Bones of You



Woman and Home – The August issue (out in July) includes their choice of the 50 Best Books of Summer and includes The Bones of You as one of their 3 Gripping Crime Reads – “When 18-year-old Rosie is found dead, rifts in her apparently perfect family begin to show. Kate, a neighbour, suspects the police are missing something. A compelling debut.”

Waterstones Blog – Debbie talks about Rosamund Lupton’s Afterwards on Waterstones Book Marks Blog and what it is about the writing that makes it a good book for her: “How completely it draws you in and occupies your mind, lingering even after the last page has been turned, then pulling you back again, later, to read and re-read the most thought-provoking passages.”

She talks about how she believes in following your dreams – “If you’ve ever wondered about that long-shot idea you have, that you’ve always pushed to the back of your mind, what do you have to lose? It’s worth taking a leap of faith for the simple reason that, unless you try, you’ll never know…” It’s also worth taking a look at the all new Prima Book Club.
