'I write books to escape with'

Veronica Henry was winner of the 2014 Romantic Novelist's Association Novel of the Year for A Night on the Orient Express, which she wrote whilst as writer in residence on the Venice Simplon Orient Express, 'I couldn't fail to be inspired by this trip of a lifetime, and the result was my eleventh novel... which tells the story of a group of passengers on this glamorous journey,' but this year she's planning to stay closer to home. Fresh from appearances at Fowey Festival and Chipping Norton Literary Festival, she is currently gearing up for the publication of her latest novel High Tide, which is set in Pennfleet, the same fictional seaside town as The Long Weekend and knits together the stories and affairs of its residents and the fireworks they set off as autumn draws in (Orion, 24th September 2015). High Tide joins a strong backlist of novels that have sold more than 750,000 copies worldwide. Online its publication will be accompanied by a blog tour but also focused on local independent booksellers in the West Country. Veronica is a regular at Walter Henry's Bookshop in Bideford, Devon, where she recently did a reading with fellow author Lucy Diamond, and other favourites include The Falmouth Bookseller, The St Ives Bookseller, Waterstones in Truro, Plymouth, Edge of the World Bookshop in Penzance and Spencer Thorn Bookshop in Bude, all of which celebrated Independent Bookshop Week in June this year. 'My West Country stalwarts!' according to Veronica.
