On the 25th of October, 2018 I was very lucky to be at the book launch for Three Kinds of Kissing by the late Helen Lamb.
The event was beautiful and for me personally a life-changing experience. I have been to 100’s of book launches and this one was incredibly special. The love in the room for Helen Lamb was so extraordinary. I was deeply moved by it and meeting and talking to Helen’s friend and husband I felt I was very very lucky to be there.
Chaired by Heather Pearson who was truly marvellous at bringing Helen’s love of her writing and giving those who didn’t know Helen, a glimpse into her personality. We had readings by Tracey Emerson and Shelley Day and a talk with her former writing students Catriona Courtier and Fiona.
Helen’s book is available now in paperback and Kindle edition. (Links below).

Once upon a time, there was a girl who lived in a house of clocks, a house that ticked like a bomb… Officially, Olive’s only been gone one day, but Grace knows she’s been lost much longer. Her schoolmate’s disappearance forces Grace to recall the dark secrets she and Olive still share – including the one that shattered their friendship four years ago, the one that haunts Grace now. With the adults around her caught up in their own dramas and deceptions, Grace struggles to make sense of her past and present before she too becomes lost. “Three Kinds of Kissing is a modern classic about friendship, loss of innocence and the myriad ways families can self-implode.” – Cynthia Rogerson
