"Empathetic, serious, forgiving, ominous, tender, terrifying... Brick Mother follows the lives of ordinary people tasked with the extraordinary challenge of caring for the mentally ill. Human weakness is witnessed, measured and forgiven in the same breath. Bradley has performed the unlikely feat of inhabiting a cold government building with a nurturing human heart. A thoughtful, thought-provoking and mature debut." (Mishka Shubaly, best selling author of The Long Run)
I'll be launching my debut novel, Brick Mother, at the Leeds Big Bookend festival this June, along with fellow Dead Ink author Richard Smyth, who will also be launching his debut novel at the same event. The launch event is on June 7th at 2pm in Leeds Central Library. The facebook events page is here.
