My debut novel, Almost Adults, is out this year!

It’s published by Ebury Press at Penguin Random House and is out on 8th August.

Almost Adults is about four twenty-something women navigating the world of adulthood. Not the ‘18-year-old learning to do their laundry for the first time’ kind of adulthood, but the painful, sh*tty, funny, downright messy type of adulthood later in life that even your mother couldn’t prepare you for.

It’s a book about loss and heartbreak and mental health, but it’s also a celebration of one of the most powerful kinds of love there is: female friendship. I wanted a different kind of protagonist; a realistic, relatable, no-holds-barred heroine. So I wrote about four of them. I hope you love them just as much as I do.

It’s also supposed to be quite funny.
