About C H Clepitt

C H Clepitt has a Master’s Degree in English Literature from the University of the West of England. As their Bachelor’s Degree was in Drama, and their Master’s Dissertation focused on little known 18th Century playwright Susannah Centlivre, Clepitt’s novels are extremely dialogue driven, and it has often been observed that they would translate well to the screen.

Since graduating in 2007, Clepitt gained experience in community and music journalism, before establishing satirical news website, Newsnibbles in 2010. In 2011 they published A Reason to Stay, which follows the adventures of disillusioned retail manager, Stephen, as he is thrust into village life and the world of AmDram. Clepitt’s feminist fantasy, The Book of Abisan not only crosses worlds, but confuses genres, and has been described as a crime drama with magic.

Not liking labels, Clepitt has often said they don't like the way that choosing a genre forces you to put your book into a specific little box, and instead prefers to distort the readers’ expectations and keep them guessing.

Most recently Clepitt's Magic Mirror collection does just that, retelling classic fairy tales as a combination of historical fiction, magical fantasy, espionage and crime drama, all with a queer twist!

We got daddy to download it on to mummy's Ipad, So while I've been recovering from my dog flu mummy's been reading it to me every night.

How do I tell you about it without giving away the story?

Well, this book is great, it keeps you on the edge of your seat with lots of twists and turns with a touch of spy/action and romance.
So if you like a story that keeps you guessing until the end, or a story where you think you know whats going to happen but then you turn the page and the opposite happens, then this a book for you. It is a really great read.
Luv Willow.

I wasn't sure if this would be my kind of book but I'm glad I started reading it as once I started I couldn't put it down. It was billed as a comedy and definitely had some comedic moments in it. The main character was very believable but the fact she just so happens to bump into a couple of spies and a talking badger went a bit far. The story was well written and the twists were really good. Would definitely read a sequel if just to find out what happened to the badger who vanished near the end of the story. I thought the ending felt slightly rushed as it was building up nicely and then kind of just ended but apart from that it was a very good read

The apocalypse. Spies. Zombies. A badger? Who doesn't love a witty badger with the attitude that everyone's an idiot?
It all works in this hilarious comedic apocalyptic story.
Right from page one it takes you on a romp. Kerry starts out as what appears to be an airhead and then it gets funnier from there. The character development uses a lot of stereotypes but in a comedic way that just adds to the story. The story itself, well, I don't want to spoil it!
I absolutely love how this book makes fun of itself. The author is a genius for penning something like this.

Anyway, there really isn't much more I can write about this story. So go check it out, leave a review, and enjoy the satire.

This book never takes itself seriously -- nor should it! From page one, it was full of the dry English wit that I really love -- the situations were absurd and over the top, which only made the humor that much better. I totally recommend this to anyone who just wants (or needs) a good laugh.

This is a quick witted, full of sarcasm, and a ton of clever antics.

I was not sure what to expect when I opened this book, based on the cover and title. Let me say I was surprised at what I found. The characters are super funny, they fit with the plot fabulously, and were exactly what this book needed to make it a good one! There are shopping malls, caves, weddings, and much more that you might not think of happening in your very own apocalypse.

C.H. is a new author for me and I think I will have to dig a bit deeper and see what else is out there from her, and get it all read!

Sublime satire, comedic beats and contemporary themes. A lively cast of characters blunder through the apocalypse, fighting off morons and possibly zombies.
