If you want to exude presence, you need to be present. It's so easy to say and so hard to achieve or maintain. Presence, liveness and spontaneity - fundamental requirements for any performer on stage or screen - are disciplined psychophysical techniques, they combine ways of thinking with ways of using the body. 'Climbing the Mountain' contains 30 short talks given by Master Trainer John Britton across a six-weeks training process. It is a journey that takes you from the slightly nervous first morning, through a process of building ensemble and encountering the self, to the final day of the course, as a group who have shared so much, head out into the world again. Along the way there is a laugher, philosophy, silliness, questioning, struggle... all the elements of a performer's journey. There is also joy; always joy - for this book charts a training based in a radical commitment to enjoyment, empowerment and ensemble. Though this book is for all performers, its appeal is much wider. To be open, joyous, and authentic requires a performer to find and nurture those personal qualities in herself or himself. Dynamic, charismatic live performance requires a disciplined and radical process of personal growth. The approaches that work for performers work for everyone. 'Climbing the Mountain' offers a training for anyone who wants to become more present in their daily life, in their work, and in their relationships. 'Climbing the Mountain' takes you into the privacy of the rehearsal room as a group of actors and dancers learn to stand fearlessly, joyously and passionately in front of their audience. You are invited to join them.
‘I was gripped immediately’ KATERINA DIAMOND, author of THE TEACHER

‘I didn't want this book to end.’ ELISABETH CARPENTER, author of 99 RED BALLOONS

Three women. Three secrets.

Antonia is beautiful and happily married. Her life is perfect. So why does she hurt herself when nobody’s watching?

Sophie is witty, smart and married to the best-looking man in town. She likes a drink, but who doesn’t?

Olivia is pretending to be a happy wife and mother. But her secret could tear her family apart.

Their lies start small, they always do. But if they don’t watch out, the consequences will be deadly.

‘I loved Beneath the Skin. It's so beautifully written and kept me hooked right to the end. Caroline England knows her wonderful cast of characters inside out. I didn't want this book to end.’ ELISABETH CARPENTER, AUTHOR OF 99 RED BALLOONS

'I loved this book. A clever, glamorous, observational, page turning read which pulled me in right from the start until the pivotal, and most satisfying end. Beneath the Skin transcends the ordinary crime genre, taking it to another level.' AMANDA ROBSON, BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF OBSESSION

‘Beneath the Skin is a startling debut. It slowly put me under its spell, until I was absolutely beneath its skin. With characters that pulsate off the page, complex relationships, and dark mysteries, this novel follows the lives of four couples. Their dramas are revealed slowly, patiently, and beautifully, until the breath-taking climax. I can’t recommend this enough.’ LOUISE BEECH, AUTHOR OF HOW TO BE BRAVE

‘Four couples with interlocking histories; eight individuals, all with secrets that are ready to explode. Set in the lush heartland of the Cheshire countryside, this is a tautly elegant psychological thriller, razor-sharp and utterly believable. I loved it.’ SARAH JASMON, AUTHOR OF THE SUMMER OF SECRETS
