It has been a roller-coaster of a year, full of excitement and drama, with thrills and spills and a lot of hard writing along the way. I am delighted to announce that I have moved publisher to be with the brilliant Simon & Schuster UK who will be publishing my new book – THE LIBERATION – on 3rd November 2016. They are a wonderfully warm and supportive bunch of people, and boy, do they know how to throw a party! (I am already looking forward to their Christmas beano.)
THE LIBERATION is set in Italy 1945 when the war has just ended and the British and American troops still control the devastated country. The story of Caterina Lombardi takes place in beautiful Naples and Sorrento, so of course I had to make an extended research trip to those sumptuous cities – as well as to the exquisite Isle of Capri. Tough, I know, but somebody has to do it!
Here’s the atmospheric cover that Simon & Schuster have created for it. I adore it. I hope you do too.
