Carole Johnstone's award-winning short fiction has been reprinted in many annual 'Best of' anthologies in the UK and US. She lives in Argyll & Bute, Scotland, with her husband. Mirrorland is her debut novel.
'I loved Mirrorland. It's dark and devious, a neo-gothic featuring twin sisters and a deeply frightening old dark house. Beautifully written and plotted with a watchmaker's precision' STEPHEN KING 'An intricate, brilliant puzzle of a novel where past and present, fantasy and reality, are all clues that one twin must decipher to uncover the fate of her missing sister and the secrets of their shared past. It's Gone Girl meets Rebecca if Henry James had written it; atmospheric, tightly plotted and utterly gripping, a must read for fans of Ruth Ware and Gillian Flynn' SARAH PINBOROUGH 'An addictive slice of Gothic' i paper 'A dark, twisty and richly atmospheric exploration of the power of imagination' RUTH WARE 'The love child of Gillian Flynn and Stephen King. In Mirrorland nothing is as it appears and the kaleidoscope twists and turns will have you frantically turning the pages until you reach the gasp-out-loud ending' GREER HENDRICKS, bestselling co-author of The Wife Between Us 'Told with thumping heart and extraordinary tenderness - as much a celebration of imagination and its escapism as an examination of trauma and its echoes' KIRAN MILLWOOD HARGRAVE 'Past and present collide in this vivid, ingenious and totally absorbing thriller. An amazing debut' T.M. LOGAN, author of The Holiday and The Catch
