My novel, 'Simon's Choice' is due out in a few weeks, published by Night Publishing. I'm seeking reviews and wondered if the novel might interest anyone.
"But, Daddy? Who will live with me in heaven?"
Doctor Simon Bailey's previously perfect life is shattered when his seven year old daughter is given months to live.
Whilst he can almost come to terms with her impending death and feels he may one day deal with never being able to see her again, he can not stand the idea of his child facing death alone.
He answers her question in a moment of desperation, testing his marriage, his professional judgement and his sanity to the limit. He offers to go with her.
As cracks form in the foundations of a family that once appeared unbreakable - we wonder, as do his loved ones - will he really make the ultimate sacrifice?
Journeying from the plastic palaces of Disneyland, to the funeral pyres of the Hindu Sati and combining poignant moments of both humour and pain, Simon's Choice is a is a penetrating account of parenthood at the sharp-end.
