In 2015, The Christmas We Met will be published by Orion, followed by The House Of Dreams, which is set in Marseilles, France during World War II and follows a group of rescue workers, refugee intellectuals and artists in hiding. The House Of Dreams will be published by Thomas Dunne/ St Martin’s in 2016.
