Radio Honey

“This was great fun to read!...A ballsy, sex-positive protagonist still feels relatively radical (even though it shouldn’t), and the all-women radio station is a gem of a set-up (even better that you have personal experience, since it lends credibility and depth to your portrayal whereas too often a character’s job can feel like an incidental detail poorly fleshed out)—plus the nineties flavour of the story should attract a lot of readers, such is the current vogue.…With Radio Honey you have a strong basis for a surprising and relatable novel: the humour comes across well and your varied cast of characters interact wonderfully.”
