|Me and my brother in the Puncak, outside Jakarta, c.1978|
|Available on Amazon on 6/6/16|
My story is about the wife of a diplomat who struggles to come to terms with her ruinous marriage, against a backdrop of illicit love affairs, parties and general revelry. Her gilded, ex-patriate life in Jakarta begins to unravel as her husband becomes increasingly possessive and seeks to control her every movement. In the end, she faces an agonising dilemma to win back her freedom.
In the run-up to the book launch, I am frantically proofing, re-writing and honing the cover design with my friend Alex Nicoley, a talented graphic designer. I am terribly excited that this book - which has taken me a good few years to write - will finally see the light of day. The python in the garden will also be playing a cameo role! So if you enjoy a literary thriller with a dash of romance, then please take this journey with me back into time, to a place where fear and fun were inextricably bound.
