This is my first public event! Home crowd! Delighted to be interviewed by Kirsty Wark.

You Will Be Safe Here is the stunning and shocking debut novel from the award-winning author of Maggie & Me. Set in South Africa, it explores legacies of abuse, redemption and the strength of the human spirit.

Spanning more than a century of South African history and featuring a cast of memorable characters, this is a deeply moving novel of connected parts. Inspired by real events, it uncovers a hidden colonial history and present-day darkness while exploring our capacity for cruelty and kindness.
