The Secret of Creek Cottage is a tale that follows the lives of two families, almost a century apart.
1916: While the Great War rages through Europe, in the small coastal village of Trunrowan, Cornwall, life for Loveday Nance could not be more different. With her husband Will away fighting, the reality of having a longed-for child of her own seems to be slipping away with each day that passes.
Present-day: Kitty and Ben Gridley decide to leave their busy lives in Bristol hoping for a quieter way of life in the pretty village of Trunrowan, Cornwall. Little do they realise the impact that moving into Creek Cottage will have on them. When Kitty begins to experience strange things happening at the cottage, she is certain there is a secret harboured within its stone walls.

A huge thank you to Liz Fenwick for including The Secret of Creek Cottage on her list of novels set in Cornwall, the list can be viewed here:
Tina M Edwards has loved reading and words in all forms from an early age (a love encouraged by her late grandfather who was also a writer and poet). She eventually began writing seriously, many moons after the year of her birth. Her poetry, flash fiction and short stories are now published in the U.K. and America.
She currently lives in the South West and spends as much time as possible by the sea. She is editor at The Beach Hut, an online platform for therapeutic writing which celebrates the benefits of nature, the coast and all the inspiration it brings, acknowledging the positive effects it can have on our wellbeing.
She enjoys writing ekphrastic poetry and flash fiction and her debut novel, The Secret of Creek Cottage, will be available from July 10th 2020, published by SilverWood Books (you can preorder now from the Shop page). Unsurprisingly, the time-slip novel is set in Cornwall, one of her favourite places, and follows the story of Loveday & Will during 1916 and Kitty & Ben in the present day. It is steeped in folklore, tragedy and hope but what is the secret of Creek Cottage…?
