A Novel Way to Support Victims of Abuse

When In Search of Adam was published I was overwhelmed by the response of readers. I had explored themes of sexual abuse and self-harm and this prompted many people to contact me, to tell me of their own experiences.

I wanted to find a way to give something back to those whose lives have been touched by abuse.

The novella, Disraeli Avenue, has been published as an ebook, asking only for donations to the charity ‘One in Four’ in return. The charity offers unconditional support for people who have experienced sexual abuse and sexual violence and as a small organization, desperately needs funds to continue its work.

Dianne Ludlow from One in Four said “We are delighted that Caroline is doing this for us and as a small charity any funds raised will make a real difference.”

Disraeli Avenue (the street in which In Search of Adam was set) is a collection of short insights into the lives of the people living there.

My publisher, The Friday Project, are in full support. MD and Publishing Director Clare Christian said “This is a fantastic idea which will raise money for a very important cause and give fans of Caroline’s writing much pleasure at the same time.”

The eBook can be downloaded from or from from February 18 2008.

I know that each and every donation will make a difference.

So, if you can, please please please donate.

Many thanks for your support, for wanting to help me to make a difference.
