Thursday the 11th of January 2018. It’s 08:55 in the morning and I’m listening to the soundtrack of a movie called ’Moon’. It’s a film I’ve never watched, but I know it’s soundtrack quite intimately. I usually listen to film scores when I’m writing, so if you follow me on Spotify and notice that I’m listening to something by Hans Zimmer, Bladerunner, Moon or the noises of Stranger Things you can be pretty sure that I’m working on The Passing. If I’m listening to 90s grunge, then I’m stuck in PowerPoint doing something for a client. If I’m listening to Public Image Limited, I’m doing my tax. I’ll listen to John Grant when I’m cooking. These are my soundtracks.  We all have them, don’t we?

Extract from the novel
“Peel back each of the layers of the Sarah brand onion, and find your inner story, the one thing that we can align to the core values of the Coalition and will become the thread that runs through the fabric of your rich personal brand tapestry. This will become ‘Sarah’ within the network, the Sarah of value, the Coalition Sarah: full, swollen with value, useful and whole - a pillar of influence.”
