A Night In with Jodie Matthews
Join author and poet Jodie Matthews to celebrate the publication of her unforgettable haunted house mystery debut novel, Meet Me At The Surface.
Everything that comes from the ground has to go back down … eventually.
Merryn grew up on the wilds of Bodmin moor, raised by her mother and her aunt in an old farmhouse. Here, the locals never leave the village, and cling desperately to the folkloric tales that are woven into their history. When Merryn returns home for the memorial service of her ex-girlfriend Claud, she finds her childhood home stranger and more secretive than ever. The villagers are hunting on the moors at night, but for what? And then there’s a notebook, found in an old chest of drawers, full of long-forgotten folklore that seems to be linked somehow to Claud…
Jodie’s debut novel is a haunting ode to Cornish folklore and the secrets of the places we call home. This chilling novel weaves mythology and queer folk horror, to create a page-turning tapestry that you won’t want to put down. Don’t miss out.
“Assured and beautifully written, Jodie Matthews’ novel is an astonishing debut. It’s rare to find a Cornwall which most of us Cornish recognise in modern literature, but it’s here in all its vivid and magical glory. Rhythmic, atmospheric and endearing.” Charlie Carroll
