I’ve just finished doing edits on my new book - Ghosts of Shanghai -
and am feeling very excited about it. The story has been around in my head or notebooks for a good few years now, and it’s really gratifying to see it taking shape at last. To finish off work for the year I’ve been drawing…Ghosts
tells the story of Ruby Harkner, a girl stalked by fear and negotiating the troubled and exotic world of 1920s Shanghai. Chinese ghost stories, gangsters and a weird and beautiful slice of Chinese history combine as backdrop for Ruby’s struggle to overcome loss and work out whether ghosts exist only in the mind - or are very real indeed.
The book should be out in early July 2015, with the sequel Shadow of the Yangtze
to follow in early 2016...
