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.

Review by: Beaten Track Publishing on March 16, 2019 :
Book two in the Guild of Dream Warriors series. I didn't love it with the same fervour as I did book one (My Dream Woman: Book One In the Guild Of Dream Warriors Series), but I still really enjoyed it (hence the five stars).

Back in the 80s, I had the dubious delight of watching the Nightmare on Elm Street movies, thanks to a horror-obsessed housemate, so when I think of 'dream warriors', that's where my mind goes, and there was a hint of that in book one. In book two...well, it still doesn't quite reach the horrifyingly maimed slasher level, but there are some pretty scary moments. As the blurb says, "It's hard to sleep when you're afraid to close your eyes..." I read this in bed, in the dark, which added a certain ambience but no nightmares. There's a bit of a love story (F/F) in there, quite a few plot twists and lots of strong female characters.

The Night Knight works as a stand-alone story, but I recommend reading My Dream Woman first in order to understand what the Guild of Dream Warriors is and also get a sense of the connections between the characters.
