I love a good psychological thriller and this one sounds just so intriguing!
Beside Myself is a literary thriller about identical twins, Ellie and Helen, who swap places aged six. At first it is just a game, but then Ellie refuses to swap back. Forced into her new identity, Helen develops a host of behavioural problems, delinquency and chronic instability.
With their lives diverging sharply, one twin headed for stardom and the other locked in a spiral of addiction and mental illness, how will the deception ever be uncovered?
Exploring questions of identity, selfhood, and how other people’s expectations affect human behaviour, this novel is as gripping as it is psychologically complex.
Ann graduated from Cambridge University with a first-class degree in English literature and went on to do a master’s in creative writing at UEA. She has also trained in sub-editing at the London College of Communication and earned a postgraduate diploma with distinction from the London School of Journalism.
Following a few years of strange and rather varied jobs, these days, Ann is a freelance writer and editor, available for copywriting, journalism commissions, speaking engagements and sub-editing shifts.
Her non-fiction book “Reading the World: Confessions of a Literary Explorer”, inspired by her year-long journey through a book from every country, was published in 2015.
“Beside Myself” is her debut fiction book and is due for release in January 2016
When not writing, Ann can often be found performing with some of London’s top professional choirs. Singing has taken her to such far-flung destinations as the Red Sea, the Arctic Circle, India, and Texas, as well many places in between.
