Only About Love
by Debbi Voisey
Coming 5th August
There’s no such thing as a perfect family. A perfect life. A perfect man.
Frank is proof of this. He’s everyman and yet as unique as a fingerprint. With a wonderful wife and children who are the loves of his life, he couldn’t ask for anything more. But time and time again he keeps risking it all.
In snapshots through time, Only About Love takes a sweeping loop around Frank’s life as he navigates courtship, marriage, fatherhood and illness. Told through the perspectives of Frank and his family, this story is one of intense honesty about the things we do to those closest to us.

‘Debbi Voisey’s writing is breathless, red-raw and brutally honest.’ – Tracy Fells, 2017 Regional Winner (Canada & Europe) Commonwealth Short Story Prize
‘Gut wrenching, heart-warming, playful with time, language, and memory; a gathering of special moments relived that remind us that time is never on our side so to make the most of it whilst we have it.’ – Lisa Blower, author of Pondweed
