This week has seen the launch of a brand new book for me – Spell Caster! This is a mix of two things – the paranormal, and a little bit of mystery! Cassie (our main character and a witch!) is drawn into a murder investigation alongside a necromancer, a vampire, and a shifter…

So in celebration, I thought I’d share some of my favourite crime shows/books!
Considering how much I love the paranormal, it’s probably no surprise that I love iZombie. The later episodes might not be quite so murder-centric, but the first ones were and it was awesome! While I had already plotted out and started working on Spell Caster, this show was certainly a bit of an influence in me bringing it forward in my writing plan!
- Silent Witness
If you’re in the US, you might not have heard about this one! It’s a BBC show that’s filled with pathology and grittiness. It’s not always the neat little bow. The cops aren’t always on the right side, and the pathologists get their hands dirty…I think Nikki and Cassie have a lot in common (though not a job! Cassie is a lab technician not a pathologist)
- Val McDermid Books
I’ve been reading Val McDermid since before I probably should have been given some of the subject matter. But I love them. I actually dropped everything I was doing earlier in the year because I realised the next book in the series I loved was out (the Tony Hill & Carol Jordan series) this one is more from the Police Angle but I love it anyway!
