I feel like everybody else is an author, and I’m just an ordinary person who wrote a book. And my book’s kind of about that impostor syndrome, of feeling like you’re not really the real thing.
Debut New Zealand author Rose Carlyle is living every budding writer’s dream — her first novel, The girl in the mirror, has had book publishers competing and major Hollywood studios vying to snap up the film rights. A lawyer who lives in Auckland with her three children, she wrote her debut novel early in the morning before work and family life.
Several commentators have already said she looks set to be the next big thing in New Zealand publishing. Be one of the first to read what the fuss is about by reserving a copy!
The girl in the mirror / Carlyle, Rose
“Identical twins only look the same … Beautiful twin sisters Iris and Summer are startlingly alike, but beyond what the eye can see lies a darkness that sets them apart. Cynical and insecure, Iris has long been envious of open-hearted Summer’s seemingly never-ending good fortune, including her perfect husband Adam. Called to Thailand to help sail the family yacht to the Seychelles, Iris nurtures her own secret hopes for what might happen on the journey. But when she unexpectedly finds herself alone in the middle of the Indian Ocean, everything changes. ” (Adapted from Catalogue)
