Blog tour: Cheryl M-M’s Book Blog

On the latest stop of the Half A World Away book blog tour, I’m talking on Cheryl M-M’s blog about what lies behind the book’s title. It’s an REM song, because I often steal song titles for my books (two of them from Cyndi Lauper!), and it’s a song which I strongly associate with Berlin when I used to travel there a lot. I think it also applies to East Berlin at the time: “East Germany in 1987, the time that the book is mainly set, was half a world away from life in Britain or even West Germany – the same, but distinctly different.”

Cheryl has also given the book a great review.

“A riveting read, and a bold combination of love and history.” – Cheryl M-M
