Author’s acknowledgements

I thank you

My mum and dad, Hazel and Michael, for moving down south when I was five, leaving me with a funny accent and a lifelong love of language.

Martin Hennessey, John Simmons and the good people of The Writer for giving me the chance to do this job I love, and inspiring me with their talents, too.

And Oisín, for again putting up with endless talk of deadlines and word counts.
