What you need to know before your trail

Georgie Chancellor has worked hard to have a perfect life, and it is, on the outside. She has a beautiful home, successful husband and two wonderful children. Everything she dreamed about as a girl is hers. Not that she ever thinks about her past, anymore.

But when her family enters her into a stand-up comedy competition. Georgie finds on stage, only the truth will do.

Encouraged by Jaz, her handsome mentor, she riffs about her family and what life is really like behind the facade. Audiences love it, and Georgie’s star begins to rise.

Will stand-up success destroy everything she has created?

Travel Guide

Stand Up Mam

A novel with a North East focus with a keen visit to Edinburgh for the comedy festival that runs through the entire story. There is a brief sejour in London – to Regent’s Park to be precise, where Georgie and Jaz learn how to dance the tango.

Lovely to see the North East celebrated in another fine story! The author is from the North East too so it’s a nice homage to home.
