I have some exciting news!
In October this year, my memoir, Skinny Girl, will be released and ready for purchase. More than ten years in the writing, this book tells the story of my journey through anorexia.
Here’s an overview.
“When twenty-year-old Sydney girl, Sue Hutchison, discovered her sister was engaged, she thought her life would fall apart. How could she manage without her best friend? And when would someone love her the way her sister was being loved? Desperate for attention, Sue began dieting, chasing after the ideal figure of the 80s—lean and athletic. Her determination quickly turned to obsession and she became caught in a relentless cycle of extreme calorie counting and exercise. Sue’s body grew thinner and weaker, yet she rejected every offer of help, withdrawing further into her own protective shell. Meanwhile, her university friends prayed and plotted over how to intervene—before it was too late.
This is a story of friendship, faith and impossible breakthroughs. Readers will journey with Sue as she faces the dark roots of her eating disorder and learns how to forgive and take responsibility for her own choices.
For every girl who’s judged herself by her appearance, struggled with an eating disorder or been wounded in relationships, here is hope for healing. Honest, enlightening and ultimately uplifting, Sue’s story will remind you that, with the right support, a teachable heart and plenty of prayer, freedom is possible.”
Right now, I’m getting the final bits and pieces to the publisher, Elephant House Press, ready for the design process to begin. I’ll update you with further release information as it becomes available.
