I am delighted to share the new paperback cover for My Pear-Shaped Life.
This edition will go on sale in Ireland and UK on 7th January. And with a little bit of luck, it won’t find itself in COVID jail, like it’s big sister the hardback edition did, back in April of this year!
I love the colour palette of this version and the artist has captured both Greta and Dylan perfectly. I especially love the heart at the centre of the pear! I hope you like it too…
This is a joyful, uplifting book to remind us how strong we are…no matter how pear-shaped life gets!

She’s hiding so much behind her big smile she’s forgotten who she is.
But Greta is about to discover that the key to being happy is…being yourself.
Greta Gale has played the part of the funny fat one her entire life, hiding her insecurities behind a big smile. But size doesn’t matter when you can laugh at yourself, right?
Until Greta realises she’s the only one not laughing. And deep down, she’s not sure if she’ll ever laugh again.
But Greta is about to discover that sometimes the best moments in life come when it’s all gone a bit pear-shaped…
Everyone loves Greta:
