The Mother I Could Have Been Publishes Today!

November 2019

Kerry Fisher's new novel, The Mother I Could Have Been, is out today.

As a child, Vicky Hall never had the sort of family she wanted. The least important person in her new step-family, ignored by her mother in favour of her two younger half-siblings, Vicky was always an afterthought. Sitting alone at her graduation ceremony at the age of twenty-one, she vows to create her own family and her own life, one which is full of the love and attention she has always craved.

When Vicky meets William and falls pregnant in Greece that summer, it isn’t planned. But the two of them believe they can make it work, showering their child with the love which they believe should be enough.

But when her son Theo is two, Vicky leaves him in the care of her mother-in-law, walks out of her front door and drives to a hotel where she takes a room for the night. She doesn’t return.

It’s unthinkable.What kind of mother does that?

The kind who is hiding a story you can never imagine.

Congratulations, Kerry!

The School Gate Survival Guide release

July 2014

We are excited to announce the publication of Kerry Fisher’s The School Gate Survival Guide in e-book today.

The School Gate Survival Guide will be published in paperback by Avon on 11th September but is available now in e-format.

Feisty Maia is a cleaner for ladies who lunch. She spends her life wiping up spilt Sauvignon Blanc and vacuuming around handbags before rushing back home to run around after her children's hopeless father on an estate where survival depends on your ability to look the other way. 

But an unusual inheritance catapults her into a different world where it seems no child can survive without organic apricots and Kumon maths classes and no woman can contemplate a week without pilates and pedicures.

As she dashes from coffee mornings to her mops and buckets, she is drawn to the one man who can help her 
family fit in. 

But is his interest in her purely professional or will her modern My Fair Lady experiment end in disaster? 

Congratulations, Kerry!

The Woman I Was Before out today in PB!

May 2020

Kerry Fisher's The Woman I Was Before is now out in PB.

Of all the emotions single mother Kate Jones feels as she walks into her brand new house on Parkview Road, hope is the most unexpected. She has changed her name and her daughter’s, and moved across the country to escape the single mistake that destroyed their lives.

Kate isn’t the only woman on the street starting afresh. Warm, whirlwind Gisela with her busy life and confident children, and sharp, composed Sally, with her spontaneous marriage and high-flying career, are the first new friends Kate has allowed herself in years. While she can’t help but envy their seemingly perfect lives, their friendship might help her leave her guilt behind.
Until one day, everything changes. Kate is called to the scene of a devastating car accident, the consequences of which will test everything the women thought they knew about each other, and themselves.

Can Kate stop her own secrets from unravelling, or was her hope for a new life in vain?
