New Deal: WINE WITCH ON FIRE by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean's WINE WITCH ON FIRE has sold to Russell Smith at Dundurn Press.

MacLean's memoir follows one woman's quest to transform a life that's been shattered by the sudden crumbling of a twenty-year marriage followed by a vicious professional attack. She is forced to choose between despair and overdrinking or digging deep to find the magic inside herself. WINE WITCH ON FIRE is her journey to reclaim her son, sanity, reputation, new love, and ultimately, her self-worth.

"I have always loved Natalie's wine writing, so when I had a chance to work with her on this deeper story of overcoming personal and professional devastation, I jumped at it,” said The Rights Factory CEO Sam Hiyate. “Russell Smith's enthusiasm for the memoir made him and Dundurn Press the natural home for it."

Natalie MacLean is an internationally recognized wine critic, TV personality, host of the UNRESERVED WINE TALK podcast, four-time James Beard award-winning writer, and bestselling author of RED, WHITE AND DRUNK ALL OVER.
