Darling Helen Richardson is part of our Teacher Training Class of 2017 and is the obvious choice to be our latest student of the month. Why? She’s only gone and had a novel published. It’s called Waking, and the author Phoebe Morgan had this to say about it: ‘Beautifully-written, cleverly-plotted, and with a creeping sense of darkness, 'Waking' will stay with you long after you turn off the lights at night...’ The blurb gives you a sense of what to expect:
There are dark corners in your mind that even you can't get to. Anna Caldwell is terrified of falling asleep. A nightmare, her very own, will be there waiting for her. After sharing her bed with the same vision for fifteen years, she's desperate to shake it. But it only holds on tighter. Then Anna meets Jack. She's drawn to the strange, alluring tension that she feels when she's around him. It's as though it's meant to be. But creeping beneath the roots of their intimacy is darkness. If you knew your dreams were trying to tell you something terrible, would you listen?
Sounds amazing, no? It comes out October 12th and you can buy it here: https://www.waterstones.com/book/waking/helen-richardson/9781786153449
