Kirsten Hesketh’s debut novel, Another Us, is the poignant and funny story of a marriage under strain. Emma and Daniel’s son has been diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome; horrified to discover that 80% of such marriages fall apart, Emma is determined to not let hers become a statistic. With its focus on family life, its humour and its exploration of relationships, Another Us is written for readers who enjoy character-driven books with satisfying emotional content and a little grit.
Kirsten has a background in advertising and now runs her own consultancy specialising in psychological interviewing and focus groups. Over the past 25 years, she has interviewed the Great British public on everything from Rolos to razors and is particularly known for her ability to explore ‘sensitive’ issues.
Kirsten is married with a teenage son and daughter and two exceptionally fluffy moggies. She is a keen amateur archaeologist and loves to spend her weekends hacking through the mud on a local Roman dig. She is also a staunch supporter of Wycombe Wanderers - especially when they are winning!
