Nostalgic for the 90s, when Kate Moss reigned supreme, the mobile phone was something only self-important eejits owned, and most of the world did not use the internet?
Here’s where I come in…
Artists Town, my coming-of-age novel, is currently part of a free book promotion at Hello Books. Here’s the blurb…
First love—it will change your life for ever…
Daisy has been dragged along on a family holiday against her will. Still, the holiday has its compensations. Katrina, the resident ‘cool’ girl who takes Daisy under her wing, and her gorgeous, older cousin who sends smouldering looks in Daisy’s direction.
Is this holiday about to change her life for the better?
The escape from London has affected Daisy’s dad. He has madcap schemes in mind for how he’s going to invest in the town’s small businesses and improve them. But where is all the money for this coming from?
Daisy finds love, a close friendship and freedom in her new life but the secrets that lie buried there are about to surface, and their revelation will be explosive and life-changing.
Set in the early 1990s, Artists Town is a heart-warming coming of age tale that explores friendship, first love, learning to be cool and navigating life’s challenges. Featuring relatable, engaging characters and situations, the story will suit anyone who remembers growing up in the 1990s in the days before mobile phones and social media, those with a fondness for small-town life and those who like love stories with a twist.
Here’s what the reviews said:
“Took me only 3 nights to start & finish this book. I absolutely loved it. Took me back to my teens, it was funny, uplifting, and also very sad.”
“YA Fiction at its finest and COMPULSORY for diabetic teens’ parents.”

Hi Emma, thanks for the free book access.
I barely remember the 1990s. It’s hard not to remember a time without a mobile phone. I had one in 1995 along with internet access. I didn’t get into social media until 2009 with a Facebook account (perhaps there was a brief dalliance with MySpace too).
I know, isn’t it? Ah, MySpace… funny what things survive and what don’t…
Is Artists Town inspired by Kirkcudbright, perhaps? X
Might well be! x
