Luke Devenish

First edition, published April 2016

Second edition, published January 2017


After telling quite a lot people that I wouldn't be writing another book for a while, I've gone and changed my mind, thanks to my persuasive publisher. My new novel will be called The Sapphire Owl, and will be set in the Ritz Hotel in 1940s Paris, from the Occupation to the Liberation. Although not a sequel, it will be connected to The Secret Heiress through some of its characters. Expect more information on this website in coming months

The Secret Heiress will be released as an audio book by Bolinda, to be made available in both CD and digital format, in December.

The Secret Heiress will be translated into Russian for publication by Hemiro in 2018.

I will be speaking at the 2017 Historical Novel Society Australasia Conference Melbourne, 8 - 10 September, at Swinburne University.
