'Hamlet is Not OK' is the story of a 16-year-old girl who gets busted for not doing her homework (this bit may be slightly autobiographical). When her tutor makes her read Hamlet out loud - they are sucked into the play. She meets Hamlet, realises he is totally messed-up and tries to help him solve his problems. And she has some really strange solutions.

I'm super proud of this book. It was my covid project. During lockdown, I had so much fun immersing myself in Shakespeare's world. I've tried to write a novel that makes all that beautiful language accessible to a younger audience while exploring the heavy duty issues in the play, that are still so relevant to teenagers today.

Please come along to the launch! I will be performing a reading from the book, telling stories about how I came up with the ideas and signing books after the show. Books will be available for purchase.
