I am extremely saddened to hear of the passing of a truly wonderful person, Solenne Peltier. She was always very present within the Strike fandom, and I followed her on Twitter for many years. She was a huge fan of Tom Burke and the BBC series The Musketeers. She often produced artwork of the characters, which I’m sure many will be familiar with.
I feel very grateful to have met Solenne at the Cuckoo’s Calling premier at the BFI Southbank in 2017. Though our meeting was very brief, I will always remember her very warm smile.
We have lost a lovely woman, but the memories of her will live on, and her artwork will always be there for people to enjoy.
Sending her friends and family my deepest condolences.
Rest in Peace, Solenne
Here are some messages from some of her friends on Twitter.
