Here is what readers have to say about Impersonation

“An intriguingly original literary detective story…  a clever premise, disturbingly well developed.” Michael Palin                                                                                 

“Tamsin Kate Walker’s  powerful debut novel has an elegant and assured style which balances mystery, dark humour, and a subtle evocation of place and character which fits perfectly with the suspense of the plot. A talent to look out for.” J. P. Davidson, Author of Planet Word

“Tamsin Walker’s terse mystery takes us on a tonal journey from the suburbs through London, Scarborough and the Hebrides and is written in a style both seductive and elegant. Skilfully plotted, the novel entertains, manipulates and subverts our expectations several times over. Fast paced and engaging – this is far from an impersonation, this is the real thing.” G Mills, on Amazon

“What fun! I looked forward to every chance I got to read more about Ruth Morton and her unusual stalker situation. I especially liked Walker’s use of literary irony. The reader often knows more about what’s happening than any of the individual characters. I was sorry when the book ended, which I always take to be a good sign.” J.E. Jordan, on Amazon

“A thoroughly entertaining read and one that, as a daily commuter surrounded by fellow rail travellers, I found particularly fascinating. It’s intriguing twists and turns lead to a gripping and dramatic climax on the beautiful and remote Scottish island of Iona – so vividly drawn I could taste the salt air. The skill of the storyteller kept me guessing till the end.” Ruby Lawless, on Amazon

What the press had to say about Molly Eyre (première in Jan 2013)

It’s not easy being a mother. Young women with children are no strangers to demands –be they related to the incompatibilities of career and family, or “merely” to the expectations of children, partners and other family members. In her comedy Molly Eyre, British-born, Berlin-dwelling author Tamsin Kate Walker homes in on this juggling act, which pushes women to extremes. In his multifaceted role as director, set and costume designer, Jürgen Weber conjured up a witty and entertaining production…

This playful approach is inherent in Walker’s text, which sees Molly make the creative process of the play a part of the play itself – a self-reflective plot device, which is not unusual for post-modern authors, but which is rarely done so coherently. It is this second level in particular that keeps the 75 minutes filled with surprising twists and turns, so that by the end of the performance, the colour and use of the kindergarten room have ceased to matter…

…A racy evening, highly recommendable. (Mainpost, 11.12.2013)
