Welcome to Welcome: a recovery centre, hidden away in a country village off the south coast of England, 1999.
When 18 year old Kat arrives with A - her outspoken, sassy disease - they're sure they've landed in the wrong place.
It takes a greek chorus of recovering inpatients, in particular bi-polar sufferer, Jack, to blast open the doors of taboo and remind Kat of the strength she is capable of.
When tragedy strikes in their troubled microcosm, Kat must fight to end the war with her compelling illness in order to protect the next generation.
Welcome is a psychological thriller. It is, ultimately, a story about how far our will power can stretch, to destroy and overcome. It will be available to read in 2024.
