British author Jenn Ashworth has written three novels, various short stories and also works on freelance story-telling and creative writing projects.
In 2011 she was deemed as one of the UK’s 12 best new novelists.
“A Kind of Intimacy” was her first book and won the 2010 Betty Trask Award.
Her other two books include “Cold Light” and “The Friday Gospels”. Her novels have been published in the US and translated into French, German and Italian.
Annie is more than a little overweight, lonely and hoping for a more meaningful future. A self-help book addict, she moves into a new home and sets out to be “neighbourly”, particularly with the man next door.
Wishing to put her violent past and less than conventional sexual exploits behind her, Annie does everything in her power for a new image and life, oblivious to any wrongdoing.
A darkly comic story that results in a bloody climax.
