Hello! Dawn Roma Rice Pudding French here, writer of the No.1 bestseller -- A Tiny Bit Marvellous. No.1 because YOU bought it, so thank you very much indeed for that.

It meant an awful lot to me to be accepted, at last, as an author, after my previous long career as a laptop dancer. I used to dance... on laptops...

Your support gave me the confidence to write my latest novel, here's the title, are you ready for it... OH DEAR SILVIA, yep, that's what it's called.

This is a very different type of book. A woman has come off a balcony and, initially, we're not entirely sure how. But, now, she's in a coma. This is my main character, Silvia Shute, a woman who has lived a pretty selfish life and always done exactly what she wanted. Until now.

Silvia has been harbouring a HUGE, terrible secret

On top of which, there are a couple of certifiably bonkers people in her life who will stop at nothing to wake her up. So she's at the mercy of the mad, the bad and the beloveds in her life. And the truth is about to pay Silvia a visit again, and again, and again...

This is a book about forgiveness, love and the loss of it and, of course, stick insects!

So buy it please, or look like a fool!

Love

Dawn
