Join Roma Wells to celebrate the launch of her debut novel Seek The Singing Fish - growing up in the lagoon town of Batticaloa, a young girl with an unquenchable curiosity and love of the natural world, is entangled in the trauma and turmoil of the Sri Lankan civil war. Uprooted from everything she holds dear, tragedy and betrayal set in motion an unforgettable odyssey. Torn from east to west, struggling with what it means to belong, she desperately seeks a way home to the land of the singing fish.
Roma Wells is a Sri Lankan and Irish writer with a family heritage entwined with wild animals and the indelible scars of conflict. Roma studied International Relations at Cambridge University and has worked in animal health, journalism, foreign affairs and international development.
