Serpentine By Catherine Edmunds

For Victoria, art is life itself – but what about love? José provides the intensity she craves, but dismisses her art; Simon loves her, but suffocates her with his gentleness – and then there’s John. Is he responsible for her best friend’s bruises? Victoria’s paintings reveal too much. Must she destroy them?

Author’s Biography

Prolific writer and artist Catherine Edmunds has more than 400 published works to her name. Solo works for Circaidy Gregory Press include the poetry collection wormwood, earth and honey and novels Small Poisons, and Serpentine, which explores what happens when art doesn’t only reflect life but is life itself.


This is a multi-faceted, rich and stunning book. Go and follow the lines of the cracks, delve into the layers; there are many, many more. Mandy Pannet,

Tears in the Fence The novel… is, I think, an examination of the conditions under which art flourishes, and the conditions under which it withers and atrophies. David Gardiner, Gold Dust Magazine
Part romance, part coming of age story, it is witty and full of descriptive passages which would grace the pages of any literary novel Jan Harris, Booksy Review .
