I am thrilled to reveal the cover of my forthcoming novel, The Poppy Factory, to be published on 28th August 2014. As you can probably gather, the novel was inspired by this year’s anniversary of WW1, but it also has a very contemporary theme, featuring a woman army media who served in Afghanistan.
My publisher, Harper Collins Avon, is generously making a donation for every paperback copy sold to The Poppy Factory charity, to help support their excellent work in helping disabled veterans back into work and normal lives. So please order your copy now!
I shall be out and about over the coming weeks doing talks and signings and would love to see you. (for more events please click here)
