Starred review in Quill & Quire for Gwendolyn Golden
I'm so honoured! My new middle grade novel,
The Strange Gift of Gwendolyn Golden, has just received a wonderful starred review in the January/February issue of Quill & Quire magazine.
Here's an excerpt:
"This lively, fast-paced novel ... moves fluidly from the whimsical to the fantastical and takes an intriguing detour to some dark places in between....
Dowding knits together a variety of elements-puberty, hidden talent, independence, loss-with a satisfying balance between humour and seriousness."
Lovely, thank you Q&Q!
See the Book Trailer. (Yep, that's me playing guitar. Thanks to George Panayotou for the video expertise!)
