Annie Mac will release her debut novel Mother Mother next year.
The DJ and Radio 1 broadcaster confirmed the news on social media, and it seems to be a return to her native Northern Ireland.
Mother Mother lands next year, and it's the product of a six month writing course, allowing her to realise a long-held ambition.
Waterstones bill the book as a "powerful coming-of-age novel and an intimate family study. It's about finding light in dark places, and it examines the cost of unconditional love."
Speaking on Twitter, Annie Mac said: "I have always written, private journals, poems, observations on life. It was something I did to keep my life and thoughts in check."
She added: "Two years ago I started writing a scene set in Belfast and writing it felt so good I enrolled in a six month writing course to help me with the discipline to start a body of work."
"I’m so grateful to have been given a chance to publish the finished novel, and I hope that it moves readers in some way, and even stays with them for a while."
It’s hard to write anything about this thing without gushing and using an excess of expletives but I will keep it to a minimum. I have always written, private journals, poems, observations on life. It was something I did to keep my life and thoughts in check.— Annie Mac (@AnnieMac) October 12, 2020
Annie Mac will publish Mother Mother on May 27th 2021 via Wildfire Books.
