Just who is this Makovesky woman anyway?
Liverpool lass Tess moved away to work at a tender age. Since then her movements around the country have resembled a game of ‘Pong’, but she’s now settled in the far north of England where she roams the fells with a brolly, dreaming up new stories and startling the occasional sheep.
Tess writes a distinctive brand of British comedie noir and her short stories have darkened the pages of over a dozen anthologies and magazines. She sets much of her work around the city of Birmingham (the original one in the UK), in particular the leafy but dubious suburbs, the back streets, and of course, the many canals. She often includes references to Pink Floyd songs, not to mention the occasional elephant.
Her crime caper novel 'Gravy Train', featuring a bunch of losers chasing a bag of money around the back streets of Birmingham, is available from All Due Respect. Pyschological noir novella 'Raise the Blade' is also available from Caffeine Nights Publishing.
