  • “Stunning… A new writer who possesses breathtaking originality and verve”. Ian Kirkpatrick reviews Rites. http://iandavidkirkpatrick 
  • “A wonderful sense of uncertainty” “Insightful observations” “A fine debut novel”. David Hebblethwaite reviews Rites. http://davidhblog.wordpress.com/
  • The wonderful local news channel One&OtherTV came to the book launch of Rites on Saturday 16 June 2012 and made this gorgeous short film about the event. Crikey, all my friends are good looking. http://oneandother.tv/#.T-gezmuo9NE.facebook
  • First radio interview about Rites! With the lovely Elly Fiorentini on BBC Radio York. In which, despite horrific nerves beforehand, I had a grand old time. Starts about 9 minutes in.  http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p00rxwmd
  • In which my cherished University shows off about my book, and I am very happy to let them. Please note the reference to Rebecca Pedley’s role in producing Rites – fantastically astute young editor with a critical acumen I could only dream about at such a tender age. She’ll go far.    http://www.york.ac.uk/news-and-events/news/2012/events/sophie-coulombeau/
  • Interview by Stephen May, author of ‘Life! Death! Prizes!’ (Bloomsbury). In which I am compared, for the first and only time, to a Spartan. The man has not seen me deconstruct an all-you-can-eat buffet. http://thesecondbesttime.blogspot.co.uk/?spref=tw
