About the event...


From Cradle to Grave, the title of Dr Zak Uddin's first novel, is the motto of the NHS at its inception in 1948. He chose it because the book's main protagonist is a junior doctor and it felt a fitting name for a story about the birth of a medical career. The book tells the tale of Jack, a newly qualified junior doctor in his first six months after medical school, working in a sleepy district general hospital where he initially struggles to perfect his skills.

Roxie Cooper was born and bred in Middlesbrough. After studying Classics at university, she became a dancer in a nightclub for a few years before going travelling and living in Australia. When she returned, she swapped dancing on a bar, to practising at the Bar, and became a barrister for seven years. It was after being constantly told ‘Ooh! You don’t look like a barrister!’ by absolutely everyone she met that the idea for her debut novel The Laws of Attraction was born.
