Being Dianne – Qarnita Loxton’s latest novel – to be released in September

Dianne is divorced but for the sake of her two daughters she lives next to her exhusband, sharing a joint double garden. Good for the girls but what about her? How can she move on if Alan and his new fiancée are always around?

Her postdivorce romances have stalled: Andile, her lover turned friend, and Faye, her secret Tinder date turned sometimes lover. Both Andile and Faye want more but Di is not sure what she wants. Her daughters were not thrilled with the idea of her with a boyfriend, will they freak out if their mom has a girlfriend? Is it even worth introducing them if Faye might turn out not to be the one for her?

But when Dianne’s eldest daughter deals with homophobia at school, Dianne feels compelled to speak out and be honest about who she is. With the support of her friends Kari, Lily, Shelley and now Shireen, she might just have the courage to do it. But what will the fallout be?
