Well, time flies when you’re having fun, as they say – and also when you’re busy penning books.
Casting Off received lovely reviews – and also demands from readers to know what happened next: did I ever make it to the Caribbean? Did I find a happy, fulfilling life at sea? And did I get my happy-ever-after with Guy?
So I wrote a sequel.
Here’s what it’s about:
Former stressed-out city girl Emma is in Malaysia, living on a yacht with handsome Guy, with plans to explore the world’s most remote and exotic places. Life couldn’t be more perfect.
But when she is eventually forced to return to London, to her old crippling life, Emma finds herself struggling with anxiety and panic attacks. Running, or sailing, away is just not an option this time.
A beautifully-written story for those who dream of adventure, Untie the Lines is also a deeply moving tale about recognising the ned to live a balanced life – for without balance, we fall.
