Introducing Gore

Happy news! Gore, a short graphic novel written by me and beautifully illustrated by Ivo de Jager is being published by Black Panel Press in July 2023.

“Victorian orphan Beryl Gore adores the guts-and-glory productions of the Palace Theatre where she lives and works. Preoccupied with dreams of pirates and revenge, she barely notices the squalor around her. As Beryl grows up, trying to persuade vainglorious manager Mister Perry to read the plays she pens by candlelight, she realises the theatre is falling apart around them. To save the Palace, Perry must take a chance on Beryl. But as Beryl discovers, scoundrels aren’t confined to the stage.”
