Lisa Jewell had always planned to write her first book when she was fifty. In fact she wrote it when she was twenty-seven and had just been made redundant from her job as a secretary. Inspired by Nick Hornby's High Fidelity, a book about young people just like her who lived in London, she wrote the first three chapters of what was to become her first novel, Ralph's Party. It went on to become the bestselling debut novel of 1998. Fifteen bestselling novels later, she lives in London with her husband and their two daughters. Lisa writes every day in a local cafU where she can drink coffee, people-watch and, without access to the internet, actually get some work done . . .Keep in touch with Lisa-www.lisa-jewell.co.ukwww.facebook.com/LisaJewellOfficial@lisajewelluk on Twitter
