A Peek into Gale

Gale – honouring the 5% of the population who are red heads

For those like me, who grew up with red hair, blushing, freckled and chubby: my novel Gale recognises that not all heroines are skinny, perfect, blonds or brunettes!
Nor should they be.

Gale (working title) is my coming of age novel set in 1980s Leicester, England. Sarah has the power to create a wind like energy she calls Flow – which gets her into plenty of trouble. Life is not a breeze and she suffers isolation and bullying before she works out that she needs to fix herself not her classmates.
