Kate Mosse 'needed a break from Languedoc trilogy'

21st October 2009

Bestselling author Kate Mosse's new novel might be different to what her fans are used to, she has said.

In an interview with the Journal, Mosse revealed that she decided to take a break from her Languedoc trilogy which included 2005's Labyrinth and 2007's Sepulchre when she wrote The Winter Ghosts.

'Part of the reason I wrote The Winter Ghosts is that my stock in trade is big, historical, epic books with a cast of hundreds and great sweeps of history,' she explained, pointing out that the new book is small and self-contained.

Mosse also told the newspaper that she could not continue working on her trilogy while penning her latest novel as she can only work on one project at a time, although the final instalment - Citadel - is due out in 2011.

She also described the process of writing a smaller novel as 'very different' to her normal approach but said it allowed her to clear her head before starting the last part of her trilogy.

Labyrinth was the top selling paperback of 2006 and scooped the best read category at the British Book Awards 2006.
