BRONTE’S MISTRESS by FINOLA AUSTIN (published August): Debut novelist FINOLA AUSTIN will be in the UK in September to promote her book, BRONTE’S MISTRESS, an intriguing re-imaging of the scandalous affair between Branwell Brontë, and his married, and much older, employer, Mrs Lydia Robinson, mistress of Thorp Green Hall near York. Finola was born in Kent and brought up in Northern Ireland, and now lives and works in New York. She obtained a Masters degree in nineteenth-century literature at the University of Oxford and founded an award-winning blog, the Secret Victorianist, dedicated to the culture of that period. She is available to write articles and for interview.
HIDDEN by ANNABEL CHOWN (published September): At the age of 31 ANNABEL CHOWN was living the life of a young, single Londoner. A successful architect by day, she spent evenings partying with friends and worrying about finding a boyfriend. Then she found a lump in a breast, changing her world overnight. HIDDEN is her incredibly honest, raw account of the devastating impact of being diagnosed with cancer in your early 30s, the treatment she endured, and her life after cancer. It’s an extraordinary memoir of courage and determination that gives hope to anyone who has been forced to radically change their lives. Annabel lives in London and is available to write articles or for interview.
