Alert! Laura Palmer from Head of Zeus in the UK has acquired the rights to Margie Orford‘s Clare Hart series, which is published locally by Jonathan Ball. The deal was brokered by Orford’s agent, Isobel Dixon. Head of Zeus will publish Gallows Hill next year along with re-issues of the previous books in the series, Daddy’s Girl, Blood Rose and Like Clockwork. The latest book, Water Music, will be published thereafter.

Orford said that she is “delighted that the Clare Hart series has found such a stylish home in Head of Zeus and it will be such a pleasure to be working with Laura Palmer again.”
