Why Mummy Drinks and Swears! with Gill Sims

November 21 | 19:00 - 21:00

Stirling Adults Panel Event / Author Reading Scottish Writers

Gill Sims is the best-selling author of Why Mummy Drinks, which spent a staggering 6 months in the Sunday Times Top 10, was the best-selling debut hardback novel of 2017 and was shortlisted for Debut Novel of the Year in the British Book Awards. Her second book, Why Mummy Swears, is a Sunday Times No.1 best seller. Mummy's back, this time with a few choice words to share... Daddy is constantly off on exotic business trips. Boy Child Peter is connected to his iPad by an umbilical cord and Girl Child Jane is desperate to make her fortune as an Instagram lifestyle influencer... Gill lives in Scotland with her husband, two children and a recalcitrant rescue Border Terrier, who rules the house. Gill's interests include drinking wine, wasting time on social media, trying and failing to recapture her lost youth and looking for the dog when he decides to go on one of his regular jaunts. For more information on Gill, please follow her blog - Peter and Jane Facebook Scotland. Refreshments will be served at this event.
