Sarah Marie Grayeabout this book: Suicide is a difficult subject to talk about. And although writing a novel isn't an easy task, writing about suicide - putting my thoughts into the heads of my characters - was far easier than talking about my mental health.
With The Second Cup, I hope to capture what it's like to not feel as if you fit into the world - to feel uncomfortable in your own skin. I've written it for all the people who, like me, wonder if they tick half a second out of time with the rest of the world.
Faye, Beth, Abbie and Olivia come from different family backgrounds, they are successful in their careers and in their love lives to a greater or lesser degree. What they have in common is they are all struggling with mental and emotional issues.
When Faye discovers Jack - her ex and the love of her life - has killed himself, it brings life into sharp focus for all four of them.
A cup of tea does not cure everything.
