The Weaning


The Weaning

The Weaning is my second novel. I wrote it as part of a PhD in creative & critical writing at the University of Sussex, investigating autobiographic practice.

Here’s what the book looked like while I was writing it:

current state thesis

I hope it reads as both a meditation on the act of reading and writing as well as a gripping suspense narrative. Here’s the publisher’s ‘blurb’:

‘When professional couple Nikki and Rob uncover their childminder Bobbi’s secret everything changes. Bobbi has a child-shaped hole in her life that her ‘silver fox’ lover can’t fill. Now she is seeking out children once more. Troubled young couple, Kim and Connor are battling with social services to keep their baby, Jade – but they needn’t worry, Bobbi soon arrives to help solve all their problems.’
