The Girl on the Page is a smart, sexy, provocative and powerful novel of ambition, betrayal and redemption.

It follows the story of a hard-drinking, bed-hopping, hot-shot young book editor on a downward spiral.

Having made her name and fortune by turning an average thriller writer into an international megastar, Amy Winston is given the unenviable task of steering literary great Helen Owen back on track to meet her publishing deadline. 

Helen and her husband are brilliant, complicated writers, who unsettle Amy into questioning who she is and what she does for a living – and before Amy knows it, answering these questions becomes a matter of life or death.
