New novel on the way

I’m very happy to share the news that my new novel is called: HELLO FROM THE GILLESPIES.

The cover copy reads: “For the past thirty-three years, Angela Gillespie has sent to friends and family around the world an end-of-the-year letter titled ‘Hello from the Gillespies’. It’s always been cheery and full of good news. This year, Angela surprises herself – she tells the truth….

The Gillespies are far from the perfect family that Angela has made them out to be. Her husband is coping poorly with retirement. Her thirty-two-year-old twins are having career meltdowns. Her third daughter, badly in debt, can’t stop crying. And her ten-year-old son spends more time talking to his imaginary friend than to real ones.

Without Angela, the family would fall apart. But when Angela is taken from them in a most unexpected manner, the Gillespies pull together – and pull themselves together – in wonderfully surprising ways…

From the bestselling author of The House of Memories comes a heartfelt and hilarious novel about miscommunication and mayhem in a family like no other.”

HELLO FROM THE GILLESPIES will be published in Australia and New Zealand in October, and the UK, Ireland, USA and Canada in November. The e-book is now available for pre-order on e-retail sites.

I hope you all like the sound of it – more details soon…
