This summer, when you are lying poolside, and the woman over from you is cackling with laughter, it’ll be because she’s reading her brand new paperback copy of Amy Nickell‘s Confessions of a Single Mum!
Published in paperback today by Headline, it was described by The Sun as a ‘frank and down-to-earth story, inspiring and honest’
Want to know what it’s really like to be a single mum? Perfect for fans of Part-Time Working Mummy and Why Mummy Drinks, this will inspire you to own your single status and make you realise that you’re not alone.
When Amy Nickell left university, she managed to nab herself a real life paid job as a celebrity reporter in London town. She literally got paid to ask Robert Downey Junior out for Nando’s, while living with her gay best friend, their Harry Styles cardboard cutout and their pet toad, Snoop Frog, and drank prosecco way before it was in fashion. Things were good, they were fun, they definitely weren’t serious. However, that life took a very grown up, very serious detour when Amy found herself expecting the unexpected and pregnant age 24. Pregnant and without a boyfriend. And so her life took on an altogether new direction…
Here in Confessions of a Single Mum, Amy debunks single mum myths, delves into the world of dating (nothing ruins sexy sofa snogging ambience like the watchful eye of Daddy Pig), going back to work just ten days after giving birth, lactating WAY too close to Simon Cowell, as well answering the questions that come with having a family that is anything but nuclear.
Amy’s wonderfully frank, honest and hilarious story will inspire other parents to own their single status as well as anyone whose life has thrown them a curveball.
Praise for Confessions of a Single Mum:
‘A joyful and moving first person account of solo parenthood and confronting societal expectations of “family” after falling pregnant age 24. Bravo Amy!’ Pandora Sykes
‘This goes off like a rocket and never lets up . . . this is like going out with your best mate for a coffee and them telling you their whole experience’ Penny Smith
