Beth Morrey - Author

About the Author

Beth Morrey is an ex-TV producer who was behind shows you watched and loved, like The Secret Life of 4 Year Olds; shows you might not have watched but would enjoy, like 100 Year Old Drivers; and shows that you haven’t watched and maybe shouldn’t, like Sun, Sex & Suspicious Parents

Since her early twenties, Beth has been trying to write a book. Her first attempt was a spin-off from Mary Poppins called ‘Sister Suffragette’, which was all about Winifred Banks’ adventures when she wasn’t at home singing. It’s probably for the best that it’s still in a drawer somewhere. Beth was previously shortlisted for the Grazia-Orange First Chapter award, and had her work published in the Cambridge and Oxford May Anthologies while at university. Saving Missy is her first full-length novel, written in a café in Highbury during maternity leave. It was a Sunday Times bestseller, and has sold in 16 countries. 

Beth has a husband who is a radio presenter, and two sons who are very tiring. In her spare time, she enjoys running, cooking, and stroking her dog, who would rather be elsewhere. 

Beth can also be found on Instagram: @bethmorrey

Saving Missy

Saving Missy

Author: Beth Morrey Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 06/02/2020

'A touching, deftly written debut that celebrates community and kindness' Sunday Times Missy Carmichael's life has become small. Grieving for a family she has lost or lost touch with, she's haunted by the echoes of her footsteps in her empty home; the sound of the radio in the dark; the tick-tick-tick of the watching clock. Spiky and defensive, Missy knows that her loneliness is all her own fault. She deserves no more than this; not after what she's done. But a chance encounter in the park with two very different women opens the door to something new. Another life beckons for Missy, if only she can be brave enough to grasp the opportunity. But seventy-nine is too late for a second chance. Isn't it? 'Bittersweet, tender, thoughtful and uplifting ... I loved it' Nina Stibbe
