JUST SAYIN’, Malorie Blackman’s much-anticipated autobiography, is out now!

Having written over 70 books for children, including the highly acclaimed Noughts & Crosses series, and winning multiple awards, from BAFTAs to the Eleanor Farjeon Award for her distinguished contribution to the world of children’s books, Malorie Blackman’s long-awaited autobiography Just Sayin’, is out now, published by #Merky Books.

Full of life lessons, Just Sayin’- My Life in Words is a deeply personal and vividly compelling look at an incredible life which defied expectations and inspired a generation, and has already received incredible reviews!

It’s a total privilege to get a glimpse in to Malorie’s inner world. Her humour, boldness, sensitivity and humanity are as much on show here as any of her classics. She’s a superhero of literature, goodness knows how many readers she’s saved like me.

Zawe Ashton

It’s very candid, and movingly so…. Not only is Blackman a grafter- even more, and in the face of more, than we already knew. She’s someone with whom you do not mess. Good on her. She’s earned it.

The Telegraph

Malorie Blackman’s engrossing and often shocking memoir… shows how she was able to succeed…The prose and occasional poem contain intimate, often painful and sometimes funny insights into the author’s life.

The Guardian

An incredibly inspiring tale.

The Sunday Times

This is a book of life. An inspiring life.

Benjamin Zephaniah

A powerful, inspirational memoir that shows just what you can achieve with resilience, determination, ferocious hard work…and talent.
