Amy, aged 33, said: “The story is set in Sheffield and the main character encounters a lot of situations that could result in homelessness so it is very relevant to Roundabout. It is a great charity and they do such important work.”

Strong Stuffis Amy’s second novel, following 2019’s The Raven Wheel. It is available to pre-order now from major bookstores.
