About the Author
Anne Goodwin's drive to understand what makes people tick led to a career in clinical psychology. That same curiosity now powers her fiction.Anne writes about the darkness that haunts her and is wary of artificial light. She makes stuff up to tell the truth about adversity, creating characters to care about and stories to make you think. She explores identity, mental health and social justice with compassion, humour and hope. An award-winning short-story writer, she has published three novels and a short story collection with small independent press, Inspired Quill. Her debut novel, Sugar and Snails, was shortlisted for the 2016 Polari First Book Prize. Lyrics for the Loved Ones is her fourth novel.Away from her desk, Anne guides book-loving walkers through the Derbyshire landscape that inspired Charlotte Brontë's Jane Eyre.

"How long can the stories we tell ourselves protect us? In Matilda Windsor Is Coming Home, Anne Goodwin peels back the narratives, revealing a common wound. Told with compassion and humour, this is Zeitgeist literary fiction from a former NHS clinical psychologist whose novels not only entertain but offer hope." - Mia Farlane, author of Footnotes to Sex

"A fantastic novel about a tough topic, which highlights the changes in mental health policy and forces us to remember we are all vulnerable and we should fight to ensure that nobody is ever left behind." - Olga Núñez Miret, author, translator and psychiatrist

"Anne Goodwin gives us an authentic look at trapped lives within the stifling world of the long-stay psychiatric asylum, institutions that are disestablished now but which still cast long shadows into our present." - Rod Madocks, author of Ship of Fools: Stories From The Mental Health Front Line
