Anne-Marie Cockburn: The journey so far
14 February 2014 by Admin in 5742 Days, Lifestyle
Earlier this week BBC News reported that a seventeen year old boy had admitted to supplying controlled class A drugs at a court hearing. The hearing followed the death of schoolgirl Martha Fernback, who swallowed half a gram of MDMA powder and suffered a cardiac arrest at a lakeside in Oxford last summer. Her mother, Anne-Marie Cockburn, immediately turned to writing as a way to cope with her grief and Infinite Ideas published her first book, 5,742 Days, in December last year.
Anne-Marie has since launched a fundraising campaign
and is working with Oxfordshire Community Foundation towards advances in teenage education and drug reform. She has written several blog posts including one following publication
, and ‘Poker Face’
, in which she writes openly about her fight with bereavement.
