“You might think that an unbreakable family curse is something that only happens in fairy tales, but I’m here to tell you that it’s real.“
My little brother died just a few months before the Covid 19 pandemic hit the world and I wrote this book over the long weeks of lockdown.
“Somebody Up There Likes Me” is a personal memoir about my family and the discovery that my mum was a carrier for the deadly illness Huntington’s Disease. It’s a story about life, death and facing your darkest fears, and what I learned in the process of caring for my brother. Although the subject matter is very specific, and perhaps sounds gloomy, it is absolutely not a misery memoir. It’s more a story about relationships and the search for purpose and connection. In the end, it’s a story about love.
“I read this in one gulp, just couldn’t put it down”. “The best book I’ve read all year.” “Deeply moving, but funny too: a tribute to the strength of love.”
In order to reach a wider audience, the book is published by amazon but is also available to buy through my website shop.
Every copy ordered directly from me will be signed and accompanied by a little gift as a thank you, and 10% of all sales go towards research into a cure for Huntington’s Disease.
