A Secret Sisterhood is out now

After years of research and writing, I’m delighted that A Secret Sisterhood – co-written with Emma Claire Sweeney, and with a foreword by Margaret Atwood – is out in the UK.

Emma and I are so pleased to have had the chance to offer something of a taster of the book in interviews and feature articles with the Daily Telegraph, the Yorkshire Post and The Pool, among others.

We’ve also got some related events coming up, the next one being a talk with author and playwright Samantha Ellis at Waterstones Crouch End on Wednesday 7 June.

Tickets are £4 and can be reserved here.

You can find a list of my other future events with Emma here.

 

Writing on the Wall festival, the Yorkshire Post and more on Something Rhymed

I’m delighted to announce that I will be reading an extract of my as-yet-unpublished first novel A Tiny Speck of Black and then Nothing at the Writing on the Wall festival in Liverpool on Wednesday 14 May.

As a former third prize winner of the SI Leeds Literary Prize, I’ll be taking part in an event at Siren Café headlined by Helen Walsh, author of gripping new novel The Lemon Grove. My book A Tiny Speck of Black and then Nothing also won third prize in the Yeovil Literary Prize and was long-listed for the Mslexia Novel Competition.

In other writing news, the Yorkshire Post recently featured an article on Something Rhymed, the literary website I run with Emma Claire Sweeney. Throughout 2014, Emma Claire and I are profiling the writing friendships of well-known female authors, and this month we’re turning the spotlight on Emily Dickinson and Helen Hunt Jackson.

We’re still actively looking for more literary pals to consider for the site, so please keep letting us know your thoughts by Tweeting us, or contacting us via somethingrhymed.com.
