Top author discusses book during Black History Month
Author Dorothy Koomson is returning home to give a talk about her latest novel for Black History Month.
The Rose Petal Beach is a thought-provoking tale of what happens when family and friendships become intertwined.
Protagonist Tami Challey is happily married with two children and a loving husband, but one evening a knock at the door of the family home changes everything.
Tami's world falls apart as she watches the arrest of her husband for a terrible crime.
Her world unravels around her, while she is faced with a choice that could lead to murder.
Koomson, known as the queen of the emotional thriller, will speak to visitors about the novel and what inspired it.
The author grew up in South London but now lives in Brighton and has seven published books under her belt.
Sales of her novels have exceeded 1.5m copies in the UK alone and have been translated into 30 languages.
In 2010 Dorothy's first gritty thriller The Ice Cream Girls was short-listed for the Galaxy British Book Awards and is being adapted for television screens by ITV.
The author is a self-confessed gadget geek and avid social networker, topics which are likely to come up during the discussion.
