Fiction

Tamzin has two fictional works in progress. One is a middle-grade book about a courageous 11-year-old boy set in contemporary Britain. The second is a historical YA coming-of-age novel about an adventurous 16-year-old American girl.

Luca and the Wolf
Luca understands football and factorial equations. His broken-up family, however, is a riddle he doesn’t know how to solve. During a trip to London, he enters a foggy world of wrecked ships, wurlitzers and wonder.

A wish on the Number 65 bus unleashes an unexpected chain of events involving a party, a park and a Polish ice-breaker. Can Luca conjure enough magnetic force to bring his sister Robyn back home?

Lacebound
Driven from her home in Chicago by horrific street violence, Mattie Errington leaves America to study art in the French capital. She arrives in Paris in the dawn of the 20th century, during the seductive belle époque.

In this patriarchal world, she experiences a new artistic savagery among the young ‘wild beasts’. Is Mattie able to save her soul from the glittering temptations of the metropolis, and bring about her own emancipation?
