The Thinking Tank

By Jae de Wylde

General fiction | Paperback, eBook


1970, London, England Sally, dressed in brown visits Father Christmas at a church fair. He rescues her as she trips and stumbles into his arms. As he hoists her onto his lap she thinks she feels the breath of a kiss on her cheek. It is 2003 and in Rutland, England, Sarah’s relationship with her daughter Rebecca is going from bad to worse. Torn apart by family secrets yet locked together by a solemn promise, the future for both seems bleak. But the mysterious and haunting circumstances of a hospital visit set Sarah on a path of discovery from which there can be no return. She traces Stephen, her childhood friend and the pair travel to Spain in search of answers. But even before they arrive, Sarah finds that Stephen has an agenda all of his own. Only by confronting the truth can Sarah move forward, but that means revealing the one secret she cannot face. Jae De Wylde steers us masterfully through the twists and turns of this splendidly paced, poignant and compelling story of love, identity and belonging.

Half Dutch, and born between the in-and-out gates of a distillery on the borders of Wandsworth and Battersea, way before the area became chic, I loved the whole London culture vibe as I was growing up. I went to Grey Coat Hospital Girls' Grammar School in Victoria (a real privilege - I am grateful for the experience to this day), and then on to read BA Jt Hons Modern Languages at the University of Bristol. I loved my early career as a Modern Languages (French and German) teacher, working in both the state and private sector. Writing has been in my blood for as long as I can remember. Following on from freelance journalism, my work as Editor for Travelsphere holidays was fantastic - travel is a great passion and I am blessed to have done a lot of it, including a magical spell as an expat in the Middle East! I also enjoyed editing Embrace Magazine for a couple of years - an intensely busy time, bonkers but good. Life has not all been easy. When one of the closest people to me died I thought that the world would end, and it almost did. When I surfaced, I realised that it had simply changed forever, and decided to honour her memory with the passion I try to inject into everything I do. The Thinking Tank was inspired by a desire to turn life's crappy stuff into something meaningful and enriching...our past doesn't always have to dictate our future. Sleeping People Lie, my new title, is a love story with a dark edge set between Paris and New York. I am now living in Lincolnshire with my husband and two chihuahuas.
