Staying in with E J Wood on Amalie Publication Day

My enormous thanks to lovely Zoe O’Farrell for inviting me to participate in this very first Question Mark Press blog tour. I’m delighted to take part and to welcome E.J. Wood to stay in with me to chat about her brand new book. Let’s see what she has to say:

Staying in with E. J. Wood

Welcome to Linda’s Book Bag E.J. and thank you for agreeing to stay in with me.

Thank you for having me!

Tell me, which of your books have you brought along to share this evening and why have you chosen it?

I’ve brought along with me this evening my latest novel, Amalie, released by Question Mark Press today, the 15th of April.

Oo. Happy publication day. How exciting. So, what can we expect from an evening in with Amalie?

Amalie is a tenacious soul with her mind set on revenge. The book, I would catagorise as a historical thriller as it is set in and just after the Second World War. I wanted to write a story with a real diverse set of characters during real times. My protagonist, Amalie is a sophisticated, methodical murderer who finds herself being chased by MI6, as well as Britain’s criminal underground. The story follows her journey eluding authorities for years.

This sounds fascinating.

One quote that particularly stays in mind is, “Just because I survived, doesn’t mean I could live.”

Now, of course, I want to read Amalie immediately to find out why that is said!

What else have you brought along and why have you brought it?

Well, I can’t go anywhere without my English bulldog, Harley, so he has joined me this evening. I’m going to apologise in advance if there are any unwanted noises or smells, because, I know if we are here for any length of time there are bound to be. Other than that, he’s quite well behaved.

Hmm. We might ask Harley to stay in the conservatory for a while until I’ve told everyone a bit more about Amalie. Thanks so much for staying in with me to chat about teh book and happy publication day once again.



It’s not wise to murder the family of a budding assassin. Created by Auschwitz, her skill is honed by revenge.

A very different type of serial killer is loose in 1950s Europe. In Britain, a Brotherhood of powerful men takes notice and enhances the expertise and artistry of a killer.

DCI John Owen was born to serve. Recruited by MI6, he tracks an accomplished executioner whose love of luxury and the arts is second only to the love of watching an early death come to those who truly deserve it.

Join the chase. Then ask yourself…

Can there ever be only one winner?

Amelie is published by Question Mark Press today, 15th April 2021 and is available for purchase here.
