Someone Else's Skin is published in the US today
My sister, who encouraged me to write stories when we were both small, reminded me that we used to stand in bookshops and say of the shelves, 'One day, my books will be there...' I was in love with the little penguin in its orange oval, so she would add a footnote to my yearning: 'He'll be on your books one day.'
Today is that day: 24 June 2014. Penguin is publishing Someone Else's Skin, and introducing Marnie Rome to American readers. I hope they like her as much as UK readers do. Thank you, Penguin, for dreams come true.
US readers can buy Someone Else's Skin online here, or from bookshops like Sunriver where it's a Staff Pick.
