THE CHARMED LIFE OF ALEX MOORE, published by Pan Macmillan in May 2018, is a grown-up adventure with a magical twist, set between the startups of London and the wilds of Orkney.
There are success stories - and there are true stories
How would you feel if everything in your life suddenly started to go . . . right?
Six months ago, Alex Moore was stuck in a dead-end job, feeling her potential quietly slip away. Then, seemingly overnight, she launched her dream start-up and became one of London's fastest rising tech stars. At thirty-one, her life has just begun. But Alex's transformation isn't easy for those around her. Her friends are struggling to accept her rapid success, her parents worry she's burning out and her fiancé is getting cold feet.
Then weird things start to happen. Muggings, stalkers - even a wild claim that she murdered a stranger. But when Alex visits the Orkney Islands to recharge, weird turns into WTF. Because there she discovers the world's oldest secret - and it's a secret that Alex's stratospheric rise has royally messed up.
Full of heart and humour, this is a very modern adventure - with a most unexpected twist.
