    1. I was born in North London in 1970 and brought up in Hertfordshire I wrote my first novella, the Time Machine, aged eight, shortly after which I declared that my ambition was to have a novel published I could have been easy on myself and just said to write a novel but no, I had to consign myself to years of torture and rejections I was frequently asked to copy out my stories for the classroom wall probably because my handwriting was so awful no one could read my first draft , and received lots of encouragement from my teachers Mr Roberts, Mrs Chandler who added yet pressure by writing in my autograph book when I left primary school that she looked forward to reading my first published novel and Mr Bird.My first publication came when I was thirteen and my Ode to Gary Mabbutt won second prize in the Tottenham Weekly Herald My Favourite Player competition At fifteen I won the Junior Spurs Football Reporter of the Year Competition and got to report on a first division football match from the press box at White Hart Lane I got lots of funny looks and none of the journalists spoke to me At sixteen I embarked on A levels and a journalism course at De Havilland College, Hertfordshire, and my college magazine interview about football hooliganism with local MP and football club chairman David Evans made a double page spread in Shoot magazine they never paid me and back page headlines in several national newspapers only a nice man at the Daily Star bothered to check the story with me.I joined my local newspaper, the Enfield Gazette, as a trainee reporter at eighteen During a ten year career in regional journalism I worked as a reporter on the Birmingham Daily News, news editor on the Birmingham Metro News and Chief Feature Writer on the Coventry Evening Telegraph, winning Highly Commended in the Feature Writer of the Year category of the 1997 Press Gazette Regional Press Awards.I loved working on regional newspapers but by 1998 my features were getting too long and the urge to write a novel had become too great so I left my staff job to write my first novel and work as a freelance journalist I have written for The Guardian, The Independent on Sunday, The Times Educational Supplement, The Big Issue, Wanderlust and Community Care Magazine I ve also had a short story published in Best magazineI found the writing and working from home a very solitary process so also worked as co ordinator of the Birmingham Bureau of Children s Express, a national charity which runs a learning through journalism programme for young people and taught journalism to schoolchildren for the National Academy of Writing After I moved north in 2001 I qualified as an adult education tutor and taught creative writing classes to students aged between 18 and 82 for the Workers Educational Association across Calderdale, West Yorkshire.After than a hundred rejections from agents for my first novel and rewrites than I care to remember I finally got an agent but still couldn t get a publisher I started work on my second novel I DID A BAD THING in 2003, finished the first draft and gave birth to my son Rohan in 2004, rewrote the novel and got a new agent in 2005, obtained a two book deal with Headline Review in 2006.I Did a Bad Thing was published in paperback in October 2007, made the top thirty official fiction bestsellers list and number 3 in Tesco and has so far sold than 77,000 copies 10 Reasons Not to Fall in Love was published in paperback in March 2009, reached no 22 in the official fiction bestseller charts and no 4 in Tesco and has so far sold than 80,000 copies Both novels were also long listed for the RNA Romantic Novel of the Year Award.Following the success of my first two novels I got another two book deal from Headline Review, with Things I Wish I d Known being the first of these I am currently working on my fourth novel.I enjoy travelling.

    2. I’m quite a big fan of Linda Green, I read 10 Reasons Not To Fall In Love a couple of years back and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was such a wonderful read that, despite its title, it really made you believe in love again. I then read the book she released last year called Things I Wish I’d Known. It didn’t blow me away as much as 10 Reasons Not To Fall In Love, but I did still enioy it. So I was inordinately pleased to know Linda would be back in 2011 with a new book and I liked how myster [...]

    3. This was an occasionally moving and quite sad story about something which rocks a perfect marriage between two lovely people, perhaps irreparably. The archetype of the ideal little family, suddenly ripped apart by tragedy, leaving wife Mel to try to pick up the pieces of her life and carry on for the sake of her young daughter. I'm sure this is the kind of book that would have most people asking themselves what they would do if something horrific like this happened to them. Although I personally [...]

    4. An OK read which unfortunately doesn’t stand up to comparisons with similar novels. “I’m Still Here” by Clélie Avit handles the “coma storyline” much better than this book, with beautiful writing and engaging characters. While “My Husband the Stranger” by Rebecca Done analyses the impact of a traumatic event on a loved one, and the shifting relationship post-accident. Although Green’s book is pleasant enough, it doesn’t have the beauty or depth of either of the other two. Th [...]

    5. A gripping, moving and (at least in places) funny read. I have mixed feelings on some of the twists, and on the ending I won't say more for fear of spoilers. The writing style is engaging, easy to get on with, though a tiny bit long-winded in places. Definitely worth a read, but keep the tissues handy!

    6. Utterly stunning. Mel met Adam, aged 13. Twenty years on, they are still blissfully in love with a 4 year old little girl, Maya. In fact, their relationship is perfection. They are each others best friend. Until a serious accident leaves Adam in a coma which leads to a "vegetative state". This is so beautiful, so heartbreaking.

    7. An unusual love storyWas hooked from page one, Linda takes you from being amused to sad to happy and then all the way back again, loved every page

    8. Easy readAn easy read to pick up and put down. Emotional in places, I did speed read most of the last 50% as it was obvious what was going on. Not sure someone can recover in a year. But a sweet story.

    9. Can I give 10stars?The affection that you feel for Mel Adam and Maya is very real. You feel that you somehow know them that they are friends or family. I loved every page of this book. It made me laugh, cry ,feel anger and feel helpless for them. Highly recommended.

    10. This is a compassionately written fictional story of a happy couple who are struck by tragedy when the husband goes into a coma. Mel and Adam have been together since school and have a daughter called Maya. They are so happy that Mel refuses to have a second chuild in case it temps fate. Not for a minute does she imagine what fate actually has in store for her and her husband Adam.This was a pretty good read, and the author's note at the back really made me think. Linda green got to know a coupl [...]

    11. Crikey this was a bad book. I read it over a period of two days and kept hoping it would turn into a psychological thriller. I couldn't get past a "high end" restaurant serving tortilla chips in the first scene and Mel drinking rioja (even though she preferred white wine) because Adam didn't drink white. Why not order by the glass?

    12. EmotionalI found this book difficult to read, emotionally. Although I wanted to get to the end, to see how it would finish, I had to keep putting it down because it made me anxious. The author does a great job of putting you, the reader, in the book and making you wonder how quickly life can change.Definitely worth reading.

    13. Hmm. I was unsure of this book but it did grow on me throughout. It was an interesting premise, and it was heart breaking at times but honestly it didn't quite reach its full potential for me. I found the ending a bit disappointing - overall I just don't know good but not great.

    14. UnrealBook chosen because of reviews.Disappointing started of well have a good description of vegetative state from both their viewpoints but lost flow in the middle and ddid not care how it ended .

    15. I think I'm just going to have to accept that I can't 'get' chick-lit. Sometimes I just want an easy read, and don't want to be one of those preening idiots who can loudly proclaim their disdain for something they've never even watched because it's beneath them.In this book, the protagonist Mel is in married bliss, until her husband is knocked unconscious in a freak accident, and makes a very slow recovery. The problem with this plot is that, really, nothing happens after that. The couple each h [...]

    16. I don't know why I was under the impression I had bought a murder mystery when I bought this book. I must have mixed it up with one of my other orders (or maybe the blurb about Mel's dark secret misled me?). So I really had a different expectation when I started reading it. But it totally surprised me - not only in the sense that I realised it's not about murder. I really loved this book, and I raced through it in one and a half days. I agree with some of the comments here, that there are parts [...]

    17. Inspiring story , well researched obviously , very readable and informative.I liked the fact that Adam was able to hear and you could feel his frustration at not being able to respond.The interaction with his young daughter was well written and the whole book was written with great sensitivity. Thoroughly enjoyable.

    18. I thoroughly enjoyed this book as I have the other books of Linda Green that I have read. At times I was reduced to tears by the effect of the accident on Adam, Mel & Maya and to laughter at "Adam's" thoughts on the things people chose to tell him when he was in a coma. I particularly loved his mother in laws singing to him. Couldn't put it down. Very easy read

    19. DisappointingI bought this book as I had read a previous book by Linda Green which I couldn't put down. Although some of the researched stuff I found to be most interesting, this book was almost a chore to finish. The story was delivered with flowery words in an unrealistic way.

    20. InsightfulGreat characters, well written story. Can't help to be moved by the family's experience and relationships. The references to real life characters in the epilogue demonstrate the warmth and life experience Linda Green seems to have.

    21. Another great story from this author. I am really liking her books. The story was easy enough to follow which is a must for me, but at the same time intriguing and with deep moments delving into family life with a nice sort of honesty that kept you wanting read on.

    22. Unusual and beautiful storyA lovely book.Sad at times but full of hope.I dont think I really understood about brain injury before this book.Very well written it is a story of tragedy ,love and great hope.

    23. Brilliantly writtenI couldn't put this book down I was so impressed by the way the author portrayed Melanie's devotion and love for Adam. I'll always remember this wonderfully written book.

    24. . I recommend this book as a good read well done.A wonderful read, Happy and very moving in places As Adam got better , I found it a very hard and emotional read from someone who also is recovering from a brain injury due to illness though

    25. This book deserves 5 starsI was a couple of chapters in when I realised I had read this book before. However I couldn't remember what happened so I continued to read it. It was most enjoyable and heartwarming.

    26. Fantastic read!!For anybody who has been through a life altering experience this book tells you everything about, love, loss and family. Beautifully written.

    27. CharmingLovely story and very inspiring but unfortunately it was not for me even though it was beautifully written and very sad

    28. Such StrengthThis was a wonderful book,made you think about when people are in comas, funny in places sad in others . Very much worth a read

    29. Very goodAmazing happy funny and sad all at the same time. Characters are very true to life. Want to know what happens next though
