My new novel is out now
February 2, 2020 § 3 Comments
My new novel ‘Transgression’ has just come out and is available here , £6.99 for the paperback and £2.50 for the Kindle edition. It’s set in 2009, a period of intense climate activity and I hope that its twin themes of climate protest and psychotherapy might appeal to readers of this blog.
“It’s 2009 and in the aftermath of the financial crash, critical climate talks are heading for meltdown. Nineteen year old Clara Fortune steps from adolescence into a life of climate protest. Simultaneously her father Thomas breaks one of the sacrosanct boundaries of his profession. As Thomas’s colleague Esther Dunn struggles desperately to dissuade him, her son Felix draws Clara deeper into the world of radical climate action. Esther, haunted by the transgressions and losses of her own past and distracted by Felix’s entanglement with both Clara and with increasingly daring protest, finds the situation slipping beyond her control.
What does it mean to break the rules? Of nature? Of society? Of one’s faith? Of one’s profession? In a rapidly heating world, this psychologically astute tale raises questions for us all.”
The paperback edition is also available from me direct £6.99 plus £2.01 postage and packaging to the UK with payment through, Goldfin, my family Pay Pal account. Click Pay Pal

I greatly enjoyed this novel. Congratulations on finding the right tone for such important issues. I’m a music therapist and involved in climate activism, more of the persuading variety rather than direct action although my Dad has done a stint in XR for a couple of years so I have been watching slightly anxiously but also proudly from afar and have joined in with some of the XR families events. This is a great insight into how the XR movement started. I appreciated the interplay of themes you so skilfully wove together. Thank you.
