Every Hidden Thing. Launch 28th August 2013


WellImage, I can scarcely believe the launch is at the door. We have spent the last 10 days on holiday at the seaside, and now I have to get my sleeves rolled up for the launch party. Have I ordered enough snack trays, and hired enough glasses? Wine, beers, bubbly? This book launch is the culmination of 8 years hard work and now it is out there in the public domain. My first child, going out into the big world. Will she be a success? Will she get rave reviews? We’ll have to wait and see!

In the meantime you can download 15% of the book for free

I have always been surrounded by books. My parents had books, books and more books. I haunted the library as a child and when I grew up I worked in books shops. When I had children and they went to school I ran the school library. And my husband keeps on telling me there are too many books in the house. They somehow seem to pile up on every available surface almost of their own volition. I fight back and donate mounds of them to the local library but somehow it is a losing battle. I just find more taking their place! For the last eight years or so I have been wrestling with writing a novel and what a fierce tussle it is. I am about to publish this magnum opus in a few weeks time. I feel as I did when I gave birth to my children; nervous but excited!
