My characters – Matty, a long-term patient, and Janice, a novice social worker – will give you a rare insight into life in the old asylums. With themes of mental health, forced adoption and the concept of home, Matilda Windsor Is Coming Home provides lots of material for debate, but is nevertheless ‘warm, uplifting and surprisingly funny for all the sadness and injustice portrayed’.

Frequently asked questions
How can we get copies of the novel?
You can buy Matilda Windsor Is Coming Home from most online stores in paperback and e-book, including from the publisher Inspired Quill (who will give you a discount on orders of five or more -- contact here). There are various options via this link.
Your local independent bookshop can order copies, sometimes with a group discount, and your library can get you copies too. They shouldn’t have any difficulties getting books for you but, if they do, you can download a PDF ordering information to pass on to them:
We’re not an official book club, just a group of friends who like to chat about books. Can we still have these resources?
We’re not in the UK, would you still join us for a Q&A?
Yes, so long as we can agree a mutually convenient time. Or you can send me your questions and I’ll make a video with my answers.
We only want the discussion sheet, is that okay?
Of course, that’s absolutely fine.
We’re booked up months ahead, should we hang on and register later?
I genuinely don’t know how long I’ll keep this offer open, so I’d advise you to sign up now so you don’t miss out.
Are you sure this is free?
Yes, it’s my way of thanking you for taking a chance on a less well-known author.
