What if you could go back in time and fix the biggest mistake of your life?
Two years ago, Maisie’s best friend walked out of her life and she hasn’t heard from him since. When she wakes up in 1994, she naturally assumes she’s dreaming. But when she finds herself in the past again the next night and her actions in the dream alter her present-day life, she begins to wonder if she’s somehow hopping back in time. And if she is time-travelling, can she save her friendship with Jonas?
When Maisie is forced to relive Christmases of the past, will she face up to her mistakes, or make them all over again?
The 12 Christmases of You & Me is a magical tale of friendship, first loves, and learning to live in the present.
I've loved working on The 12 Christmases of You & Me as it combines three of my favourite things: Christmas, time travel fiction and 90s nostalgia. The story has been in my head for a long time, but although I've written magical stories before (Everything Changes But You and The Mince Pie Mix-Up) I wasn't sure if I could pull off a time travel novel. I kept thinking about the story and how it would work, but I wasn't brave enough to dive in and give it ago.
But then last year, after a recommendation from my brother (thank you, Marc!), I watched Dark on Netflix with my teenage daughter and absolutely loved it (we binged the two available seasons in a few days). Dark involves time travel and it fired me up to finally get my own story out there - and I'm so glad I did! I can't wait to share Maisie's story - though I'll have to wait until October.
The 12 Christmases of You & Me is out on 20th October 2020 but is available to pre-order for just 99p now.
