23 Aug Putting illness anxiety under the microscope
Like all authors, Jean Flynn puts heart and soul into her writing … but, for Jean, that’s not where it ends. Jean’s prize-winning novel Lovesick follows main character Beth’s search for love whilst managing her illness anxiety (sometimes called hypochondria), and it’s a condition that Jean is all too familiar with.
In this interview with Seven’s The Daily Edition, Jean shares the reality of living with this disorder.
Meanwhile, Lovesick continues to garner media attention for its funny and frank author. In Good Weekend magazine, Jean shared her love of love letters; in Huffington Post, her somewhat chequered bed linen history and her passion for Aldi; and in The Sydney Morning Herald, her anger at irrational hostility.
Stay tuned for more from this talented writer.
