About C H Clepitt

C H Clepitt has a Master’s Degree in English Literature from the University of the West of England. As her Bachelor’s Degree was in Drama, and her 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, she gained experience in community and music journalism, before establishing satirical news website, Newsnibbles in 2010. In 2011 she published her book, 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. She has often said that she doesn’t like the way that choosing a genre forces you to put your book into a specific little box, and instead she prefers to distort the readers’ expectations and keep them guessing. Her 2016 work, I Wore Heels to the Apocalypse does just that, as just like the characters, the readers won’t know what’s going on in this laugh out loud satirical scifi.

Lesbian dream warriors fighting the patriarchy with intersectional feminism and swords!

A friend on Twitter recommended I read this novella and I could not be more grateful that they did.
There is nothing about this book I didn't like. The characters provide representation for people who don't often see themselves in books. The two main characters are gay and one of them is gay AND a disabled woman of colour, there's a pansexual character, a character struggling with PTSD, a male survivor of abuse, and more.
The premise is so clever. A secret group of lucid dreamers have banded together to fight monsters in other people's dreams to keep them safe and happy from nightmares sent by folks with evil motives. But course the folks with evil motives need to be stopped at their source so our intrepid heroes must swoop in to save the day - with swords!
I loved this book because it's romantic, exciting, clever, and well-written.
I swallowed it whole in one sitting. I have been recommending it to everyone.

The concept is original, the plot has some nice twists and turns, the heroine is likeable, and the author has sprinkled enough glitter on the whole thing to keep my queer ass happy for a few hours. Fun, entertaining summer read, 10/10 recommend.
