Ash and the Favour Man
|By:||D Michelle Gent|
|Genre:||Womens biographical fiction|
Nine-year-old Ashleigh is no ordinary girl – through no fault of her own.
She has an attitude to rival any Diva and the solid steel determination to back it up.
The only thing her parents taught her was how to take a beating and she is sick of learning that particular lesson.
When she is introduced to ‘The Favour Man’ lives are going to be changed – some for the better, others not so much. Not much in Ash’s life runs smoothly but in the autumn of her ninth year, she is forced to deal with more adventure, hardship, abuse and pieces of the harshest reality than she could have imagined and it knocks the previous years’ experiences into a cocked hat.
Junkies, dealers, paedophiles and hitmen all show up virtually on her doorstep and she has a battle on, not only to stay alive but to keep hold of her sanity if she can.
D Michelle Gent is Derbyshire-born and bred. She moved to Nottinghamshire and then on to France where she has recently been recovering from illness. Now on the mend, she has returned to her love of writing and creating stories. Ash and the Favour Man is part fiction, part autobiographical – the challenge for the reader is to work out which parts of the story are true.
