After I’ve Gone
A gripping new thriller from the number one bestselling author of While My Eyes Were Closed.
On a wet Monday in January, Jess Mount receives the devastating news that she hasn’t got long left to live. She doesn’t hear it from a doctor, though. She discovers it when her Facebook timeline skips forward eighteen months and friends and family start posting tributes to her, following her death in a terrible and mysterious accident.
At first, Jess thinks this must be a sick joke by a colleague jealous of her handsome new boyfriend. But as the posts continue and it becomes clear that no one else can see what she can, Jess is forced to confront that her impending death might be all too real . . .
About Linda Green
Linda Green was born in North London in 1970 and brought up in Hertfordshire. She wrote her first novella, the Time Machine, aged nine, but unfortunately the pony-based time travel thriller genre never took off. Undeterred, she declared that her ambition was to have a novel published (she could have been easy on herself and just said ‘to write a novel’ but no, she had to consign herself to years of torture and rejections). She was frequently asked to copy out her stories for the classroom wall (probably because her handwriting was so awful no one could read her first draft), and received lots of encouragement from her teachers Mr Roberts, Mrs Chandler (who added yet more pressure by writing in her autograph book when Linda left primary school that she looked forward to reading her first published novel!) and Mr Bird.
