Description

THIS IS NOT A PARENTING MANUAL. THIS IS REAL LIFE.

The Unmumsy Mum writes candidly about motherhood like it really is: the messy, maddening, hilarious reality, how there is no 'one size fits all' approach and how it is sometimes absolutely fine to not know what you are doing.

The lessons she's learnt while grappling with two small boys - from birth to teething, 3am night feeds to toddler tantrums, soft play to toilet training - will have you roaring with laughter and taking great comfort in the fact that it's definitely not just you...

About The Unmumsy Mum

Sarah Turner lives in Devon with her husband and their three boys. She started writing as The Unmumsy Mum after becoming disillusioned with the other parenting literature she had read online. Everybody seemed to be coping so well! Where were the tales of mums tearing their hair out after yet another sleepless night and endless re-runs of Peppa Pig? Surely there were others out there who were trying but ultimately failing to live up to the Supermum ideal they'd bought into? She made a vow then and there to document the good, the bad and the ugly of parenting and her blog (www.theunmumsymum.co.uk) was born. The Unmumsy Mum was voted number 4 in Amazon's Top 10 books of 2016 (as voted by Amazon customers) and was also shortlisted for Book of the Year (non fiction, lifestyle) at the 2017 British Book Awards. You can follow Sarah's everyday parenting adventures on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter (@theunmumsymum). Sarah Turner lives in Devon with her husband and three sons.

After graduating with first-class honours in Philosophy from The University of Exeter, she dabbled in careers in finance then higher education before a 'warts and all' parenting blog she'd started to let off steam gathered unexpected momentum and writing became her full-time job.

She has since written three Sunday Times bestsellers: The Unmumsy Mum, The Unmumsy Mum Diary and The Unmumsy Mum A-Z. The Unmumsy Mum was voted number 4 in Amazon's Top 10 books of 2016 (as voted for by Amazon customers) and was also shortlisted for Book of the Year (non-fiction, lifestyle) at the 2017 British Book Awards.

Stepping Up is Sarah's first novel, the spark of an idea coming from a conversation about will-writing and more specifically guardianship, should the unthinkable happen.

Sarah likes bookshops, walks on Dartmoor (when the kids aren't whingeing) and pretends to like running, though she's started Couch to 5k three times and keeps ending up back on the couch. She doesn't like coffee, films with sharks in or writing about herself in the third person.
