Debbie Johnson

Debbie Johnson is a best-selling author who lives and works in Liverpool, where she divides her time between writing, caring for a small tribe of children and animals, and not doing the housework.

She worked as a journalist for many years, until she decided it would be more fun to make up her own stories than to tell other people’s.

After trying her hand at pretty much every genre of writing other than Westerns and spy dramas, she specialises in uplifting women’s fiction that seems to make people laugh and make people cry, often at the same time.

Her books include The A-Z of Everything and the hugely successful Comfort Food Cafe series. Debbie’s work is published in the USA, France, Germany, Holland, Turkey, Italy and Ukraine.


A heart-warming story about what happens to a young family after they're derailed by a tragedy. There's humour, tears and above all, hope. Bring tissues

This book will tug on your heartstrings ... It's clever and wise, brimming with warmth and poignancy. For all of us who have ever harboured a 'what might have been' regret, this is a must-read

Beautifully written, full of gorgeous prose and killer one-liners. A laugh-cry lovely book from first page to last. What a lovely, lovely book this was!
