BERWICK author Barbara Henderson has published her latest novel on Kindle.
The book, an intriguing suspense novel entitled ‘Kill and Tell’, is being published under her nom de plume, Bea Davenport.
The announcement of the novel came at the end of Barbara’s four-week stint on Bedlington-based community radio station, Synergy, where she acted as an on-air tutor for listeners keen to try their hand at creative writing.
Henderson said: “I have thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity Synergy has given me of helping people who are interested in writing, and it seemed only natural to launch the work on the radio.”
‘Kill and Tell’ opens with the bizarre killing of a journalist witnessed by her friend Maura who flees the scene and takes on a new identity. But when a reporter tracks her down and persuades her to tell her story, she finds her life is in danger. A former BBC TV journalist and newspaper reporter, Henderson is currently working as a part time lecturer in journalism and creative non-fiction at Northumbria University. She is also in the final stages of a PhD in creative writing at Newcastle University where she is being mentored by prolific author Jackie Kay MBE.
Married with three children, Henderson, who lives in Spittal, has won several prizes for short stories and her book ‘The Serpent House’ was short listed for the 2010 Times – Chicken House award for best children’s book.
