Recently, my third novel The Secret Life of Alfred Nightingale was selected by an independent publisher Backlash Press as one of their ‘curated indie’ titles. Backlash describes itself as a small, independent press publishing house dedicated to releasing work that narrates a contemplated resistance to obedience and trend. As part of their work, they take self-published books of literary merit to help give them extra exposure, so this is a wonderful boost for me.
The founder of Backlash Press, a mother herself, is interested in how motherhood impacts on creative work and I was interviewed by her to talk about my work and the intricate dance between writing, creativity and motherhood. Click here to read the interview.
