About the Author

Caroline spends most of her days writing, having fulfilled her dream of having a job she could do in pyjamas. She also works in Human Resources sometimes. She is openly competitive and loves playing board and card games. She can often be found in casino poker rooms, and wishes other people would want to play Cluedo for money. She lives with her husband in Manchester where the two are captive to the whims of a small, controlling dog.

Like A House On Fire

Author: Caroline Hulse Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 30/04/2020

'I loved The Adults! Funny, dry and beautifully observed' Gill Sims George and Stella's marriage is over. They can't decide exactly when that happened (Was it the coke can? Or that comment about Jurassic Park?), but they both agree that it has. A couple of months after the separation, Stella's mother, Margaret The Force of Nature Foy sends out invites for her murder mystery anniversary party - with George on the invite list. Stella hasn't told her parents about the divorce, she couldn't bring herself to. And with her father's business shutting down, Margaret's recent cancer diagnosis, and some very odd behaviour from her older sister Helen, now is clearly not a good time. All they have to do is make it through the day without their secret being discovered. And in doing so, they may find each other again - or see their past and future both go up in flames...

The Adults

Author: Caroline Hulse Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 27/11/2018

'Genuinely unputdownable books are rare in my experience. This is one. A brilliant, original comedy' Daily Mail 'I loved The Adults! Funny, dry and beautifully observed. Highly recommended for anyone whose perfect Christmases never quite go according to plan!' Gill Sims, #1 bestselling author of Why Mummy Drinks and Why Mummy Swears * * * * * MEET THE ADULTS... Claire and Matt are divorced but decide what's best for their daughter Scarlett is to have a 'normal' family Christmas with them all together. Claire brings her new boyfriend Patrick, a seemingly eligible Iron-Man-in-Waiting. Matt brings the new love of his life Alex, funny, smart, and extremely patient. Scarlett, their daughter, brings her imaginary friend Posey. He's a rabbit. Together the five (or six?) of them grit their teeth over Organized Fun activities, drinking a little too much after bed-time, oversharing classified secrets about their pasts and, before they know it, their holiday is a powder keg that ends - where this story starts - with a tearful, frightened, call to the police... But what happened? They said they'd all be adults about this... * * * * * 'Such a breath of fresh air! Witty, intensely human and (dare I say it) relatable ... The perfect comedy of errors' Katie Khan 'The Adults is my top read of 2018 so far. Absolutely hilarious ... This one will stay with me for a long time' Cathy Bramley 'Packed with sharp wit, engaging characters and off-beat humour, this is a fresh and feisty thrill-ride of a novel' Heat 'I took this book on holiday and couldn't put it down! I've never read anything quite like it' The Unmumsy Mum 'Gripped me from the start. Reminiscent of Liane Moriarty's Big Little Lies - a sure-fire winner' Cass Hunter, author of The After Wife 'Brilliantly funny - will have you wincing in recognition' Good Housekeeping 'I have a feeling Caroline Hulse might be a genius, this book is so brilliant. t's funny, clever and original - I loved every minute of reading it. Also, Posey should get a spin-off TV show' Lucy Vine, author of Hot Mess 'Funny, poignant, real - a truly original book that made me laugh, cry and cringe in equal measure. I loved it' Charlotte Duckworth 'Razor-sharp comedy - barbed and brilliant. The characters are totally convincing ... Sparky, heart-felt and fantastically fun, this is a fabulous debut' Sunday Mirror
