Talking To The Moon was published in March by Nosy Crow: https://nosycrow.com/product/talking-to-the-moon/ Although listed as being for 8-12 year olds, many other readers will enjoy the sensitive story. The locally-based author, S.E. Durrant, explains that the story ‘is narrated by ten year old Iris who is staying with her grandmother, Mimi, in Brighton. As Mimi becomes increasingly forgetful a mystery from her past emerges, one that Iris is determined to solve.’

The author writes that she features the West Pier in the book ‘as it is so evocative of passing time and fading memories. As a backdrop to the lives of my two main characters, it illustrates the inter-generational gap between Iris and Mimi, and how a much-loved feature of the Brighton landscape can change within one lifetime.’
