My novel Dark Chapter was first published in hardback in the UK on 1 June 2017. Since then, I’ve spoken at more than 40 events in various countries , ranging from literary festivals to private salons, from receptions with ambassadors to discussion groups with rape crisis centres.

In 2018, my US book tour kicks off, and I’ll be coming to the East Coast and Midwest later in the year. Here are my upcoming events — and feel free to come say hi, if you’re at one of them!

As an author and activist, it’s very important for me to be connecting with potential readers and those affected by sexual assault.  I also enjoy speaking about the craft of writing fiction for creative writing programmes.   If you’re interested in having me speak for your organisation or event, please contact me on Twitter (@winniemli) or via my literary agent: maria (a)
