I am delighted to be a part of the blog tour for; Underrated by Morwenna Blackwood, this book sounds thrilling and I can’t wait to share it and an exclusive book extract with you all.


I stand as close as I can to the Liver Building without looking proper weird and tip my head back. My eyes can’t focus properly, but I can make out a turquoise shape right at the top, so I mouth ’iya to Bella. I’m a bit soft on the Liver Birds. They’re 300-odd feet up in the air, so they should be able to see everything, but they’re chained down…”

A story of the far-reaching effects of unrequited love and drug (ab)use, Underrated follows five lads who are just trying to make things better for themselves. In Liverpool and on the south Devon coast, their lives entangle as they turn to cocaine.

While some people take drugs to escape their circumstances, others deal drugs to escape theirs. But is escape ever really an option?

Book Extract

Richard has been sent to prison for the murder of his girlfriend, Cath, who had been suffering from depression and OCD. He was also charged with rape. He’s never stopped protesting his innocence…

I’ve been banging on my door so hard and for so long, that the sides of my fists are bruised black. I have to keep stopping because of the pain, but as soon as I do, the panic returns and I have to start again. This is all I can do, except bash my head against the walls, and I want to because this is fucking maddening, but at the same time I know that if I do that – if I kill myself – I’ll be known as a murderer and a rapist forever and “I DIDN’T FUCKING KILL HER! I DIDN’T! SHE SLIT HER WRISTS! ARE YOU LISTENING TO ME?”I am shouting and banging again, but I am not the only one shouting and banging.

The grille on the door is wrenched open, and a screw in a shirt so white it dazzles me says, “Give it a rest, A6669CW, or you’ll be moved to a Cat A, and believe me, you will not like it there!” He slams it closed again.

This is so typical of my life. Fucking God, or whoever, has it in for me. Everyone has it in for me. And I can’t get any lower than this without being dead, like Cath – who I DIDN’T FUCKING KILL, by the way, so now is the time to pull myself out.
