"Out of Play is nothing as it seems, which makes it pretty perfect."Chicklit Central"Funny, poignant, heartbreak; lots of things that resonate with any 40 something reader. I would recommend this book to any of my friends that have enjoyed Bridget Jones with me."

"I kept reading and reading until the next thing I knew, there were tears in my eyes, a stupid smile on my face, and the clock read far after midnight."

Hilarious, surprising and deeply moving. Out of Play explores themes of grief, loss and letting go.

Gillian is stuck in a humdrum marriage and is at a loss on how to fix it. Her husband regularly ditches her for weekend adventures participating in Live Action Role-Play, otherwise known as Larp.

With tensions running high, Gillian seeks professional advice. She is surprised when her therapist encourages her to try larp. "Who knows? It may make you smile. It may make you laugh. It may even improve your sex life. How terrible could it be?"

Gillian is skeptical, yet decides to give it a go. If larp doesn't work a marital miracle, Gillian can walk away knowing she tried everything before giving up on her dysfunctional marriage.

Will going on a role-play adventure heal Gillian's marriage, or will the game shed light on everything that is wrong?
