A Romantic Travel Comedy with a twist, Pillpopdom pops the blues away in an endearing tale of love, loss and self-medication. Dominate your life with Domify: the sure new cure for all your problems. Paul Stumbles PhC (pharmacist) would love to pop his woes away but won't be so lucky. Fresh out of a divorce and shaken by a recent family tragedy, he'll just have to do his best and cope until this wonder drug is available, unless of course, he can find a better alternative to Domify and prescription medicated bliss. Pill-popping his way to Spain after inheriting a flat in Madrid, Paul, true to his name, stumbles across a suspicious drug trial and a conspiracy. Domify is not the wonder pill it's made out to be - it has an appalling side-effect. Falling for Marci, a local girl, Paul must first kick his addiction to antidepressants before he can win her over, for only together can they prevent an epidemic of Domify from going global. A vibrant roller-coaster of a debut novel, Pillpopdom trips an acidly humorous line between cures for all and the dangers of over self-medication, in today's world where attention deficit pills have become regular study aids and the home medicine cabinet, a veritable D.I.Y. drug den.
