It’s my book birthday in the USA! First Class Murder (the US edition of Daisy and Hazel’s third adventure) is finally out in hardback, and Poison is Not Polite (the US edition of Arsenic for Tea, Daisy and Hazel’s second adventure) is now out in paperback. I’m so pleased and happy – I know American fans have been waiting for this, and I’m really glad the wait is finally over.
Poison is Not Polite (the US edition of Arsenic For Tea) came out in April this year, and since then I’ve been hearing from lots of American and Canadian readers who love Daisy and Hazel.
If you’re one of them, I have great news for you: my third book will be out in the USA in summer 2017, and it will KEEP its British title!
It’s only January, but my books are already having a fantastic year!
I’m finally able to share the good news that Murder Most Unladylike, Arsenic for Tea, First Class Murder AND Jolly Foul Play will be published in Vietnam by Huy Hoang. This is the sixth foreign territory for the series (the books already have publishers in America, France, Italy, Germany and Taiwan).
