A Dying Year

A Dying Year will be the first volume published in the Outside the Frame project. It tells the story of the period leading up to the death of my mother and my ex-husband during three weeks in October 2008, and the aftermath which saw the collapse of my previously tight and fairly functional family. Around 75,000 words in length, it may appear in late 2018 or early 2019.
