Unfortunately, the more likely scenario is that I'll be at home in Australia breastfeeding my newborn. Talk about timing! I fully intend to visit the US in 2018, and D.C. will definitely be on my list because a good friend of mine lives there. In the meantime, I'd be happy to post over signed bookplates to your store, and and / or Skype in to a book club or event and answer questions. You might even get a glimpse of my baby. Thank you so much for reaching out and I'm thrilled you enjoy my books. Sally xx(less)

Hi Liza,
Firstly, best of luck with your novel. Be sure to let me know when it's on the shelves--I'm a sucker for a novel about midwives!
THE SECRETS OF MIDWIVES will be available in Australia as of January 27th, 2015 ... very soon. It's available for pre-order now, or you can wait and go into your local bookstore once it's released.
Thanks so much for your question and I hope you enjoy the book.

“I like it when people remember that I'm a person, not just a person with Alzheimer's.”
Sally Hepworth, The Things We Keep

“When you get to my age,' he says, his face softening, 'you don't waste time with regrets. In the end, you just remember the moments of joy. When all is said and done, those are the things we keep.”
Sally Hepworth, The Things We Keep

“I never had a good answer to Mom's question. 'If I don't remember, will I have been here at all?' But maybe her question was flawed. Maybe it doesn't matter what you remember. Maybe if someone else remembers and speaks your name, you were here.”
Sally Hepworth, The Things We Keep
