Cake ... wine ... the wonderful independent bookshop at Canterbury Christ Church University ... oh, and my book! Please join us for the launch of Gina's Therapy at 6pm Thursday 23 April.


I'll be doing a couple of readings and will be delighted to sign copies after.

Gina has enough to deal with for one week: a disapproving daughter, her ex-psychotherapist living next door and a hopeless ex-husband she’s still in love with. Without a diagnosis of cancer. 

Catapulted into the unknown territory of surgery, chemo and support groups, Gina faces her predicament with strength, wit and a faithful pair of elasticated-waist trousers. As treatment progresses, Gina finds herself asking surprising questions. Will she ever be able to concentrate on what her oncologist is saying, without being distracted by his enormous moustache? Should her best friend’s thirty-year love of David Essex prevent her advice from being taken seriously? And how will she explain her bald bonce to her seven-year-old granddaughter? 

Blessed with the ability to delight in life’s absurdities and contradictions, Gina’s Therapy is a warm-hearted exploration of the things that matter most in life and the power of stories to transform our experience.

Unfortunately, due to lockdown, it's not possible to buy the book in paperback at the moment because bookshops are closed and distributors have stopped distributing. However, it is still available as an ebook via Amazon. (The Kindle app is free to download and can be used on tablet, computer and smartphone.) 

Silvia has also written a rom com under the name of Silvia Forrester.
