My debut novel Coffin Dodgers hit the Kindle in June 2011, and I've written lots of non-fiction books too. And if you’d like to listen to it rather than read it, it’s available as an audiobook – narrated by me! Culture is a constant thread within your memoir, whether influences, crushes, favourite bands – who are some cultural figures who had the biggest impact on you and why? It's amazing to see how the impacts of social media and the Internet have changed so negatively too.

I think this recognition is really powerful as it really highlights that how we feel can evolve as our environment changes and as our knowledge about something increases. We know this isn’t the most user-friendly way to use our ebooks and we hope to find a better solution soon. You can push a culture war, ban books and try to bring back Section 28, but that knowledge and understanding and empathy is out there now.In a world where trans people are being demonised and othered it’s important that memoirs like Carries exists. Carrie Kills A Man* is about growing up in a world that doesn’t want you, and about how it feels to throw a hand grenade into a perfect life.

Yes, there were tears of anger at the transphobia Carrie and others have had to and continue to face and tears of frustration and disbelief at the sheer lack of humanity within our NHS when it comes to trans healthcare and access to services but…there was also joy; so much joy.Touching on topics from coming out to trans parenthood, fashion disasters and pop culture icons, Carrie’s memoir is both frank and funny. The way that Carrie explores and discusses rejecting privilege and power was another real highlight for me and a great example of the power of listening to own voice stories and not allowing the narrative to come from the media.

From coming out and navigating trans parenthood to the thrills of gender-bending pop stars, fashion disasters and looking like Velma Dinkley, this is a tale of ripping it up and starting again: Carrie's story in all its fearless, frank and funny glory.

I learnt so much from this book about the trans community and I also loved how Carrie's passion for music leaps from every page. Carrie Kills A Man , by musician and broadcaster Carrie Marshall, is about growing up in a world that doesn’t want you, and how a tattooed transgender rock singer killed a depressed suburban dad.I winced at my own failures and ignorance, I laughed at the darkest of dark humour, I shed tears of sadness and frustration for what Carrie and her community, which by now should just be "our community" have suffered and still suffer so crass, clueless conniving people can use fear to sell advertising or get into power, without a shed of shame or accountability for the consequences to our LGBTQ+ friends and family! Carrie explores growing up trans and coming out later in life, showing the real impact of anti-trans rhetoric, both historic and current. However, I can use more than one word here so here are a few that spring to mind: warm, funny, engaging, open.
