After The Note, some Distance

After The Note, some Distance

How do you write a new book when you think you only have one idea?

Hi. I’m Zoë. And I’m a one-trick pony. Or that’s what I spent too much time worrying about.
I’m the (sober) girl on the train who fell in love with a man from afar on her daily commute, pined for him for over a year, wished I had the courage to talk to him but didn’t, wrote him a note, got rejected, got together, got married, had kids, and then wrote The Note – a novel based on my story.

Meet Zoe Folbigg

Hey there! I’m Zoë and I’m super excited to be launching my debut novel, The Note, through amazing Aria, on 1st October.

I’m a magazine journalist by trade, having earned my stripes on the copy desk at Cosmo; editing features for its teenage little sister CosmoGIRL!; then diving into ivory tulle and meringues at wedding magazines including Condé Nast Brides and Cosmo Bride. When I became a mum I started freelancing from my kitchen table, writing health, fitness, parenting and travel features for magazines and newspapers, before writing The Note, my debut novel.
