Sleepless Nights hits the bookshelves in the US on 11 August with HarperCollins. The novel has two heroines; the first, Q (or Quinn) has just become a mother for the first time, and is wondering what this means for her life, career, and marriage. The second, younger sister Jeanie, has come out from England to help Q in America with the new baby. At the same time she's figuring out what to do with her own life. Boyfriend Dave seems dangerously romantic, and Jeanie is not ready to settle down yet. She'd like to enjoy life a bit longer - but will the challenges of a new economy force her to hunker down?
