Book review: The Nearest Far Away Place by Hayley Long

A book about grief and brothers looking out for each other Being honest, I don’t usually choose books about grief. However, the ‘brothers looking out for each other’ reminded me of Supernatural (and who doesn’t love Sam and Dean?).

Book review: Every Day by David Levithan

The film version of David Levithan’s Every Day will be hitting the cinemas on the 23rd of February. The trailer looked interesting so, I decided to read the book first.

Real life doesn’t make sense… but does fiction have to?

When I wrote my first book, ShockWaves, I had a ‘nearly agent’ who I worked with for over a year before our ways parted.
