Something Borrowed

Серия: "-"

Brenda must face her demons, but first she needs to get to the bottom of the sinister goings-on that threaten to overcome an all-too-quiet seaside town. When poison pen letters start flying around the quiet lanes of Whitby, trouble is in store for Brenda and Effie. And with Jessie the Zombie Womanzee, trips down memory lane and amorous ghoul hunting, literary minded and strangely youthful professors of Icelandic history, as well as a terrifying encounter with bamboo wickerwork gods from the dawn of time, even Brenda’s ample cup is running over. But her most challenging battle is the one she must fight with herself – or, at least, parts of herself...

Paul Magrs

Dr Paul Magrs (pronounced "Mars"; born November 1969 in England) is a Senior Lecturer in English Literature and Creative Writing at Manchester Metropolitan University, where he began work in 2004 having formerly taught at the University of East Anglia. He did his PhD at the University of Lancaster.

He is the author of numerous fiction and non-fiction works. His first published writing was the short story "Patient Iris", published 1995 in "New Writing Four" (edited by A. S. Byatt and Alan Hollinghurst). This was soon followed by his debut novel, "Marked for Life", the same year. Other novels include "Strange Boy" (2003) and "To the Devil — a Diva!" (2004) and he has also published several short stories. With Julia Bell, he edited several issues of the University of East Anglia's "Pretext".

He is also the author of four books in the BBC "Doctor Who" novel range, to which he introduced the character Iris Wildthyme, although she had originally been created in his unpublished first novel, which was named after her. He is the editor of a short story collection featuring the character, entitled "Wildthyme on Top", released in 2005 by Big Finish Productions, for whom he has also written short stories and audio plays. He is also the author of a Doctor Who New Series Adventure, "Sick Building", as well as a forthcoming second audio featuring The Eighth Doctor and Lucie Miller.

Magrs' novel "Exchange" was nominated for the 2006 Booktrust Teenage Prize [http://www.bookheads.org.uk/06/prize/index.php4] and was longlisted for the 2007 Carnegie Medal [http://www.carnegiegreenaway.org.uk/press/pres_car_nom_07.html] .

Magrs' non-fiction work includes "The Creative Writing Coursebook", with Julia Bell and Andrew Motion, published 2001.

He lives with his partner, author and lecturer Jeremy Hoad.
