Sue Featherstone and Susan Pape are both former newspaper journalists with extensive experience of working for national and regional papers and magazines, and in public relations.

More recently they have worked in higher education, teaching journalism – Sue at Sheffield Hallam and Susan at Leeds Trinity University.

A Message from The Editor

I fell in love with Sue and Susan’s novel from the first page. This is a character-driven novel of the highest calibre; an absolute masterpiece in voice. It’s all pulled together with raw and clever detail that sets it apart from many other books in the genre. You absolutely cannot miss it.
