BBC Radio 1 DJ Annie Mac has announced that she'll release her debut novel Mother Mother in 2021.

The multi-talented DJ and presenter has announced that she'll be releasing her first novel next year, titled Mother Mother.

Waterstones describe the book as a "powerful coming-of-age novel and an intimate family study. It's about finding light in dark places, and it examines the cost of unconditional love."

On Twitter, Annie Mac wrote, "I have always written, private journals, poems, observations on life. It was something I did to keep my life and thoughts in check."

She added of the novel, "Two years ago I started writing a scene set in Belfast and writing it felt so good I enrolled in a six month writing course to help me with the discipline to start a body of work."

Later in the Twitter thread, she wrote, "I’m so grateful to have been given a chance to publish the finished novel, and I hope that it moves readers in some way, and even stays with them for a while."

Annie Mac's debut novel Mother Mother will be released via Wildfire Books on 27 May 2021, and is available to pre-order now.
