I’m going to be launching Remote Control, the third and final book in my Control Freak series at Todmorden Library, on 23 October. The event, From Care to Where -Tales of Young People Leaving Foster Care and Children’s Homes, will be part of a general celebration for the start of National Care Leavers Week.
Remote Control tells the story of care leaver Holly Richards, and her younger brother Ryan. In this book Holly gets left holding the baby when her foster sister, Lucy does a disappearing act, and Holly bumps into someone from her past she hoped she’d never meet again… Meanwhile Ryan is battling his own demons and seems bent on self destruction…
Remote Control is the third novel in the series about Holly Richards and her younger brother, Ryan.

Can Holly break old patterns and learn to let other people take control of their own lives, so she can get on with her own?
