Having been released as a podcast by Audible last year, this collection of regional folktales retold by a selection of brilliant female writers (see below) will be coming out soon in print and Kindle edition with the magnificent Virago Press.
I fell in love with this project as soon as I was approached for it and became completely spellbound when I was given my regional forgotten folktale. The legend of Chillignton Hall entails a panther getting loose in Brewood Forest, Staffordshire in the early 16th century, which, as you can imagine, set my creative mind on fire. I hope readers enjoy what came out as a result.
There are a whole host of brilliant tales within this collection, as strange and beautiful as folklore itself, based in regions all over the UK. I really hope you all enjoy diving in and disappearing into its world of magic and illusion.
Hag: Forgotten Folktales Retold will be released October 8th 2020
