Yay, it’s nearly out!
My latest book, The Finnish Girl, a prequel novella to The Englishman, will be published on 15th April and is now available to pre-order.
This novella, just as The Englishman, is based on true events, and was very hard for me to write. But I felt compelled to revisit those early years in Finland, before I met my Englishman and moved to the UK. Although The Finnish Girl is a fictionalised account of the time, I still feel very connected to the story and find parts of it very painful. Those of you who are not authors will wonder at this compulsion to revisit difficult periods in one’s life, but it is what we writers do. Especially if we are of the Scandinavian persuasion. 😉
The Kindle version of The Finnish Girl will be out 15th April, but you can pre-order the book now.
