Description

I am very, very excited to at last be selling my long-laboured-over graphic memoir, Lighter Than My Shadow, chronicle of my struggle and recovery from eating disorders and sexual abuse.

From the blurb:

"Like most kids, Katie was a picky eater. She'd sit at the table in silent protest, hide uneaten toast in her bedroom, listen to parental threats that she'd have to eat it for breakfast.

But in any life a set of circumstances can collide, and normal behaviour might soon shade into something sinister, something deadly.

Lighter Than My Shadow is a hand-drawn story of struggle and recovery, a trip into the black heart of a taboo illness, an exposure of those who are so weak they prey on the weak, and an inspiration to anybody who believes in the human power to endure towards happiness."

You can read a 24-page preview of the book at: www.lighterthanmyshadow.com

This book is over 500 pages long, therefore it's really heavy and extremely costly to post, especially overseas. Buying directly from me this way won't be the cheapest option, but as a thank you for buying this way I will sign and sketch in every copy. If you have any special requests, please just let me know!

    This book is so well drawn and it tells you exactly how anorexia can take hold but it is also a message of hope which will help many people.
    Information in an easy to understand format for any age group.
