Lakesedge is the debut novel from Australian author Lyndall Clipstone, and it’s a great one. Steeped in gothic romance and fantasy, Lakesedge tells the story of Leta, a girl who finds herself inexplicably drawn to the Lord Under, a sinister death god lurking in the black waters of the lake. Powerful, immersive, and superbly written, Lakesedge will entrance readers with a deep mystery that will leave you hanging for the next book, Forestfall.

Andrew caught up with author Lyndall Clipstone to talk about the journey to bringing Lakesedge to life from a short story, into a debut novel, while also touching on the power of gothic romance, the joy of world building, and more in this interview.
