An Unexpected and Exciting Announcement
As part of Domestic Violence Awareness Month in October, my novel, A Life of Their Own, is being reissued as a second edition with a brand new cover pack shot, on 9th September.
As an author, this is fantastic news and something I am thrilled about. But it is the recent surge in cases of domestic violence during lockdowns that has meant this novel has never been more relevant.
I have a series of events, interviews and media coverage lined up and I do hope that if you are local to an event, you will come along as it would be lovely to see you. In the meantime, I would love to hear your thoughts on the new cover.
Available for Pre-Order Now
The new edition is available to pre-order now in the ebook version from Amazon at £3.99 and will soon be available to pre-order in paperback through my publisher, SilverWood Books. Both versions have a release date of 9th September. The paperback would make an ideal Christmas present! 😉
The ebook can be pre-ordered from Amazon, just click here or on the image below.
A Life of Their Own
A story of love, hope and resilience.
A Life of Their own has been described as inspirational for anyone suffering
from domestic violence as it follows Kate, both emotionally and physically, as
she flees an abusive marriage with her two young children.
I’ve mentioned in the past that this is not a traumatic read, instead, it focuses on moving forward and starting over. Kate must rediscover her strength and determination to ensure the safety of those she holds dear.
The Writing Process
While writing A Life of Their Own, it was essential to me that the setting,
the surrounding landscape, the senses and emotions the countryside
stirred, were truly authentic to the state of Colorado.
This was also the case for the topic of this novel.
My research was harrowing at times but, again, it was
essential that the emotions and fears I brought to this novel were
authentic and credible. It would have been an insult to everyone who had
found the strength to tell their story, otherwise.

and shown herself to be a successful
adult fiction novelist.” The Courier
