Update - and new novel 'Between The Regions Of Kindness'

Dear All,


I am sorry not to have been in touch sooner.  Ever since Dead Babies And Seaside Towns was published in July I have been busy - mainly with the huge amount of publicity which the book received.  Most of that publicity was generated by the amazing Amy Winchester at Unbound.


For those who might have missed some of this the book was in The Times, The Independent, The FT, The Mail on Sunday, Woman and Home, several other magazines and numerous on line publications and blogs.  The book also recently had an amazing review in The Lancet - particularly important as the medical profession are obviously people with power to reduce stillbirths.  None of this would have been possible without your support.


I also want to let you know that Unbound have recently decided that they want to publish my new novel 'Between The Regions Of Kindness.'  This book has been many years in the making and is about the costs of peace, and whether family or conscience should come first.  I'm so excited to be able to work with Unbound again as I know that together we will do a great job.


But I do need to raise the subscriptions first.  If you would consider signing up and helping to spread the word I would be so grateful.  The link is here:


My proceeds from the book are going to be donated to FIRST STORY (an amazing charity which changes lives through writing).  You can find their website here:


Thanks and best wishes,
