Murder in Axat – Emily Wooden

A sequel to ‘Murder in Limoux’. In the sunny town of Axat, at a beautiful open air swimming pool, Madame Rougier is back, with a new part- time job, and faced with another murder. This time, there are more suspects, more motives… and much more confusion. Can Madame Rougier crack the case before the police arrive?

Emily Wooden is an aspiring author who has taken her inspiration for this story from her holidays with her parents and sister in Limoux. She loves the sunny climes of Southern France as well as creating her stories in the cooler surroundings of West London.

Careers and Other Catastrophes – Poems on the working life (Potcake Chapbook)

You think your work is hard?!? Even the retail sales clerk and the sheep-shearer in here have an easier time than the obsoleted hangman and the elderly madame with no clients. Succinct and witty portraits of the working life by ten of today’s best formal poets, to make you grateful you’re not in those shoes.

The “Potcake Chapbook” series is named for the dogs of the Bahamas and the Caribbean – strays that live off the burnt scrapings of cooking pots. The poems in the series are a mixed bunch – but the potcake of our logo wears a bow tie to show that he and all the poems are formal. These poems are memorable in part because they rhyme and scan, as all truly memorable poetry does. We subscribe to the use of form, no matter how formless the times in which we live.

To read more about the poets featured in this chapbook visit the Potcake Poets page.
