Fiona and the Whale

With her personal life on the rocks, it's going to take a whale sized miracle to keep her afloat.

Event planner Fiona Reeves did not have her husband's sudden departure on her schedule. However, she’s certain that it's only a hiccup and he'll be back in no time, begging for forgiveness. Fortunately there’s a distraction of mammoth proportions swimming in the River Thames. 

Absorbed by the story of Martha the sperm whale, Fiona attempts to carry on life as usual as she awaits her husband's return. However, nothing can prepare her for the dramatic turn of events that throws her life into ever greater turmoil. The road ahead has many paths and for Fiona it’s time to sink or swim.

Fiona and the Whale is a poignant and often hilarious contemporary fiction novel. If you enjoy topical tales, second chances and a little bit of romance, you'll love this new book from the Kindle Storyteller Award Winner, Hannah Lynn.

Author Q&A
1. What is the first book that made you cry?
It was The Horse Whisperer.  I can still remember being on holiday with my family. We’d finally got to the hotel, everyone was exhausted and went to bed, and I just had to keep reading. When they woke up they found me in a puddle of tears!
2. How long, on average, does it take you to write a book?
Honestly, with me there is no average! A first draft can take anywhere from a couple of weeks, (once with The Afterlife of Water Augustus) to well over a year. And then comes the editing part. Sorry, that wasn’t the most straightforward answer! 
3. How do you select the names of your characters?
Sometimes they have a certain name that I feel fits straight away. Other times I need to adjust them to fit in with the story and other characters. It feels a little like finding a name for a baby.
4. What creature do you consider your "spirit animal" to be?
Okay, this has required some thought. Possibly an otter. I like that they hold hands when they sleep so they don’t drift apart. It feels like that simple act could be a metaphor for so much more.
5. What are your top 5 favorite movies?
1. The Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.
2. Never Let Me Go. (Also my favourite book.)
3. Dances with Wolves
I’m honestly not sure what others. I’ve found this amazingly tough to answer!
6. If you were the last person on Earth, what would you do?
Read, write, sing, garden. Peaceful things. Eat a lot too probably. Provided there was still food.
7. What fictional character would you want to be friends with in real life?
Lady Door from Neverwhere. That girl is brilliant.
8. Do you have any advice for aspiring writers?
Just keep writing and reading. You’ll never get anywhere if you stop.
9. What book do you wish you had written?
Never Let Me Go. The premise is so incredible yet so simple
10. Tell us 10 fun facts about yourself! :)
I have lived in five countries
I have climbed one mountain

I really like a good spreadsheet.
I really don’t like peanuts in anyway.
