Description

Waterstones TCR are delighted to present the perfect summer evening of cocktails and conversation with the bestselling writers and ‘Queens of Feel-Good Fiction’ Milly Johnson and Fanny Blake chaired by Fabulous Magazine’s Claire Frost. The authors will be talking about their latest novels The Magnificent Mrs Mayhew and A Summer Reunion.

Milly Johnson is a Sunday Times Top 5 bestselling author of sixteen novels with millions of copies of her novels sold to date. Known as the ‘Queen of Feel-Good Fiction’, Milly’s novels always feature friendship, family, love, betrayal, good food and that little bit of magic in life that sometimes visits the unsuspecting. Milly is a columnist for her local newspaper and is an experienced broadcaster on radio and TV. She is also patron of several local charities with community, literacy and animal welfare issues close to her heart. Her latest novel, The Magnificent Mrs Mayhew, follows the story of Sophie Mayhew, the wife of rising political star John F Mayhew, who is under immense pressure to be the perfect partner during his bid to become Prime Minister. But with John’s good looks and power comes inevitable indiscretions, and with their relationship under scrutiny in the press, Sophie realises she can’t stick to the script of the trophy wife any more. She flees from London to a small coastal Yorkshire village where she finds calm and community – but she can’t avoid real life forever, can she?

Fanny Blake was a publisher for many years, editing both fiction and non-fiction before becoming a freelance journalist and writer. She is the author of a number of novels, including An Italian Summer and Our Summer Together, and various non-fiction titles, as well as acting as ghost writer for several celebrities. She was also Books Editor of Woman & Home for over twenty years. Her latest novel, A Summer Reunion, sees a group of four school friends heading to Majorca for a reunion weekend; each of them is drawn by curiosity, and each has a reason for wanting to get away from home for a while. Against the backdrop of the stunning Mallorcan hills, the four friends look back over their lives - the choices they made, the families they have built – and reassess what is important to them. Is now the time to grasp those second chances, or will this reunion change everything...

Claire Frost is Assistant Editor at The Sun on Sunday's Fabulous magazine, where she is also responsible for the title's books coverage. She loves nothing more than reading and recommending amazing books, which means she can mostly be found at her desk buried under a teetering TBR pile. Recently she has turned her hand to writing as well as reading, and her debut novel Living My Best Life will be published by Simon & Schuster in eBook on July 23 and paperback on September 5.

Both Fanny and Milly will be talking about their latest novels and signing copies of their books, and will be available to answer questions from the audience.
