A delighted Doncaster author is celebrating after receiving five star reviews for her debut book, and she’s already on with her second.

Teresa Gwatkin, of Conisbrough, is ecstatic with how well received her Forever Lost book has been - with the Kindle edition boasting stunning success as well as selling over 100 copies via email in the first few weeks.

And the 48-year-old said it is not just women who have loved the novel which centres around Megaan who, after a raucous childhood living with her alcoholic mother and a secret their only bond, the main character goes in search of a more fulfilling life.

“I’ve had men who’ve read it say they loved it,” said Teresa who achieved her dream of becoming an author after having to give up her sales job because of a back problem.

“Everyone has said that they can relate to at least something that has happened in the book.”

She hopes that the book’s early success will continue when the paperback becomes available via Amazon this June.

The Kindle version is available at for £3.08. Printed copies are £5.99, email
