About the Author

Sarah Rayner (www.sarah-rayner.com) is the author of the international bestseller, 'One Moment, One Morning' (2010), and 'The Two Week Wait' (2012) and 'Another Night, Another Day' (2014), which all feature her Brighton-based characters. She lives in Brighton herself, in a little blue house, with her husband, her stepson and a couple of cats. As a novelist, Sarah is known for tackling difficult subjects such as bereavement, infertility and mental illness with empathy and insight, but her latest venture has been a series of non-fiction self-help books under the 'Making Friends...' umbrella, which are published through her small press, Creative Pumpkin Publishing (www.creativepumpkinpublishing.com). The first, 'Making Friends with Anxiety' (2014) is a warm, supportive little book to help ease worry and panic, and its success led Sarah to pen a follow-up, 'More Making Friends with Anxiety' which focuses on gentle activities that can help ease stress, and 'Making Friends with Anxiety: A Calming Colouring Book' which is illustrated by Jules Miller. She has has also written 'Making Friends with the Menopause', a clear, comforting guide to support you as your body changes' in collaboration with Dr Patrick Fitzgerald, and has just published 'Making Friends with Depression: A warm and wise companion to support you through dark times' which is co-written by bestselling author Kate Harrison and Dr Patrick Fitzgerald. In addition Sarah has written two more light-hearted novels - 'The Other Half' and 'Getting Even'. Originally published in the early noughties, these have been fully revised and updated by the author and are now available on Amazon.

Reviews

'Simple, lucid advice on how to accept your anxiety' Matt Haig, bestselling author of Reasons to Stay Alive.'Reads like chatting with an old friend; one with wit, wisdom and experience' Laura Lockington, Brighton and Hove Independent'This is a great book: readable, practical and, most importantly, compassionate. Sarah Rayner gives a clear explanation of the common symptoms of anxiety and panic that affect so many lives. She then goes on to give sound advice as to how to cope with these ongoing feelings. This entails a series of strategies that encourage understanding of the anxiety rather than its suppression, aiming to give control of these complex emotions back to the patient. It's impressive that she admits to her own anxiety issues, and without embarrassment shows how they have affected her life, how she has sought help over the years, and how she continues to deal with them. The fact she has written this book shows how well she has embraced her demons, able to get on with her own creative life. I will be recommending this book to my patients.' Dr P Fitzgerald, GP'Sarah's advice is very sage: if one is prone to anxiety, as many of us are, it is futile to expect to be totally rid of it forever. It will come back, but it is possible to tame it. She encourages the reader to be kinder to themselves, live in the moment, and accept their anxiety as an occasionally troublesome, yet integral part of their own being. Deeply personal yet eminently practical, this accessible and engaging e-book should prove extremely helpful to anyone trying to cope with anxiety.' Dr Ian Williams, GP and authorPRAISE FOR SARAH RAYNER: 'Rayner's delicate, compassionate exploration ... will resonate loud and clear with anyone.'
