Student's first novel is published before she finishes her degree
A FIRST novel, penned by a Sunderland student, has hit the shelves a year before she has even finished her degree.
Having written the book throughout her second year at Sunderland University, Amy McLean hopes to follow in the footsteps of Carolyn Jess-Cooke, a former Sunderland lecturer whose novel, The Boy Who Could See Demons, inspired Amy to write her book.
Amy's novel, Walk On, is the story of a woman in a violent relationship with her husband and the supernatural intervention of a Guardian Angel. Walk On by Amy, 21 has now been published.
The fledgling author, who studies English and regularly uploads video blogs of reviews of TV shows and films, is thrilled with the finished article. Amy has also been a regular video blogger speaking about her experiences of the city and university life.
Amy, who previously attended Torry Academy in Aberdeen said: "I have been working on the book for the last ten months and I am overwhelmed and delighted with the support I have received online and by friends and family. Only a few people knew I was writing a novel along the way but it is amazing people actually care enough to regularly tune in to what I have to say. It really means a lot especially through those hard moments while writing the book."
Her book has a hint of spirituality and centres on the character of Maggie who enters into a happy marriage, or so she thinks. Her husband Peter turns to violence and a Guardian Angel called Angel Ariana arrives in Maggie's life to guide her but will it be too late for the main character?
Walk On by Amy McLean is available on Amazon and Kindle.
