I’m delighted to announce that my new book Gone in the Morning: A Writer’s Journey of Bereavement has just been published. We are often reluctant to talk about death and how it affects us, yet we all face loss and bereavement at some time in out lives. The book is a memoir about the death of my wife Chris Seeley and how writing has supported me as I’ve mourned her passing.
‘A heartbreakingly moving and yet wonderfully hopeful chronicle of a unique and mysterious journey – from the shattering illness and death of the author’s wife Chris to a beautiful reborn wholeness.’
– Judith Hemming, Psychotherapist
‘Told with the raw pain and profound honesty of one who has been through the whirlwind and stepped out the other side. This will be a precious gift for others searching for comfort and solace whilst experiencing the anguish of losing a loved one.
– Jaki Harris, Grief and Loss Specialist
‘A beautifully crafted tale of one man’s grief – and a testament to the healing power of art. Essential reading for those on the lonely road of bereavement.’
– William Ayot, author of Re-enchanting the Forest: Meaningful Ritual in a Secular Age
We’re having a launch at Hawkwood College, Stroud, 7.30-915pm, 12 October.
