Thank you for listening to this edition of the Alternative Stories and Fake Realities Podcast. 

 In this edition we speak to Cailean Steed, the author of a new novel “Home” which is published by Raven Bloomsbury on 19th January.  The novel deals with Zoe, a young woman who has grown up as part of a repressive religious cult who returns to rescue her sister. 

Excerpts from the audiobook of “Home” in this episode were read by Paula Masterton.  The audiobook is published on the same day as the hardback and e-book versions of the novel.
