HODDER & STOUGHTON TO PUBLISH MEMOIR BY NOLAN SISTER BERNIE NOLAN

Hodder & Stoughton will publish NOW AND FOREVER by Bernie Nolan on 9th May 2013. Editorial Director Fenella Bates acquired world rights in a deal with Neil Howarth at Urban Associates. Bernie Nolan has performed in the Nolan Sisters since 1974 selling 30 million records worldwide before she became a star of the stage in shows including Blood Brothers and Chicago, and on screen where she won awards for her roles in Brookside and The Bill. Two years ago Bernie was given the initial allclear after her first courageous battle with breast cancer. Over the moon, Bernie set about rebuilding her life and making plans for the future. Then in the summer of 2012, she discovered the cancer had not only returned but that it had spread to her brain, lungs, liver and bones and was incurable. In true Bernie sprit she declared she was going to ‘fight it all the way’ and this is her story. Fenella Bates said: ‘Bernie Nolan is an incredibly brave and inspiring woman. As soon as she received the diagnosis last summer, her first thought was of her daughter. Bernie was determined not to let the cancer stop her from being “Mum”. As recent headlines have suggested, Bernie is tragically in the final stages of her fight, but she is still battling with all her might to stay with her family for as long as she can. She has been writing her book for the last six months and it’s impossible not to be moved by the wonderfully warmhearted voice that comes through loud and clear on every page. It is a searing account of a wife and mother’s fight against a vicious disease, and the life less ordinary Bernie has lived over the last 50 years.’ NOW AND FOREVER will be published in hardback and eBook at £16.99 on 9th May 2013.
