I am thrilled to see the first prints of the Arts Council-funded booklet that documents the creative and research process of my novel, My Sister’s Bones. As well as extracts from the novel I have also included highlights from interviews I conducted with human rights organisations, foreign correspondents and psychologists in the course of my research. Through their words I hope to express both the horrors of war and the terrifying effects of Post-traumatic Stress Disorder.

 

For this project I worked alongside artist and illustrator Nick Ellwood who has created a series of images around the key locations featured in the novel which include: Aleppo, Herne Bay and the mysterious Roman twin towers at Reculver. He has also taken the major themes of the novel – PTSD, perception and war – and produced his own original and powerful visual interpretations.

I hope you enjoy exploring the world behind the novel!
