AN author is set to launch a new novel about parenting.

Parent of two, Sarah Stovell, 44, of Hexham, is set to launch a novel called ‘The Other parents’ - a story that will highlight some real life situations faced by many parents.

Speaking about the novel, Sarah said: “I think as parents we are always comparing ourselves to other parents - who’s doing it better than we are, who’s coping better than we are, who just seems to do it entirely differently to the way we do it. Parents can also be a judgemental bunch and I wanted to cover all of that in the title.”

The book has already made a reputation for itself as Hello magazine claims that it is ‘set to be one of the most talked-about books of 2022’.

When asked about ‘’The other parents’ release, she said: “I am quietly excited for the release, but I try not to pay too much attention to it. It’s too easy to get obsessed with sales figures, Amazon reviews and how all the other books in the world are doing. I would rather ignore all that and write the next book.”

Sarah is also the author of four previous novels including thriller Exquisite, which was chosen by The Times as one of the top 40 crime novels of the past 50 years. The book will be available across the UK on Thursday, January 20 and in the US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand later this year.
