Gold Dust is thrilled to announce another success story for a writer as a result of being mentored by one of our team. Sarah Aspinall, mentored by novelist Jane Rogers, has published her memoir of life with her mother, Diamonds at the Lost and Found ( Harper Collins ) and already garnered some terrific endorsements from the writer Marian Keyes and a place in the Bookseller’s recommended titles. Described as ‘the astonishing, beguiling story of Sarah Aspinall’s harum scarum childhood, and a love letter to a woman who defied convention to live a life less ordinary.’ We wish Sarah all the best with it.
'I worked with Jane Rogers who is a very talented writer herself, and a warm and encouraging mentor with years of experience of working with new writers. Together we got the book into a good enough shape for me to find an agent and he got two competing offers for me.'
