When and where was Glimpse released?

It was released in the UK on 19 June 2014.

Is Glimpse a retelling of ‘The Highwayman’ poem?

Not exactly. Glimpse was inspired by Alfred Noyes’ poem, and the story relies on the poem’s events, but it isn’t a straightforward retelling. ‘The Highwayman’ poem is printed at the beginning of the book for anyone who hasn’t read it.

How did you get the idea for Glimpse?

I’ve always loved romantic gothic fiction, so it was natural that my first book would be romantic and gothic. I wanted to write a ghost story, and thought of ‘The Highwayman’ poem, which is already the perfect ghostly romance. My first impulse was to write a retelling, but when my imagination cranked into gear I developed an entirely different story, using ‘The Highwayman’ as a springboard.
