Debut Spotlight: Saskia Sarginson

I stumbled across the author I've decided to highlight in today's debut spotlight feature purely by accident when browsing on her publisher's Facebook page last night.  I love the sound of Saskia Sarginson's debut book, The Twins, which is being published as an eBook on 19 March and will be published in paperback in August.

Saskia Sarginson was awarded a distinction in her MA in Creative Writing at Royal Holloway after a BA in English Literature from Cambridge University and a BA in Fashion Design & Communications. Before becoming a full-time author, Saskia's writing experience included being a health and beauty editor on women's magazines, a ghost writer for the BBC and Harper Collins and copy-writing and script editing.

They were identical in every way

Until the unthinkable tore them apart

Isolte and Viola are twins. Inseparable as children, they've grown into very different adults: Isolte, a successful features writer for a fashion magazine with a photographer boyfriend and a flat in London, and Viola, desperately unhappy and struggling with a lifelong eating disorder.

What happened all those years ago to set the twins on such different paths to adulthood? As both women start to unravel the escalating tragedies of a half-remembered summer, terrifying secrets from the past come rushing back - and threaten to overwhelm their adult lives...

If the above is not enough to tempt you to add this book to your wishlist, then perhaps this book trailer might..
