Jane Green was the author to watch in the 90s with books like Straight Talking, Mr. Maybe and Jemima J. So it was lovely to be invited along to meet her at the launch of her new book, A Patchwork Marriage. With many of her family present and the Penguin team just gushing with praise for one of their biggest authors, it was lovely to see that Jane was as friendly and chatty as fans of her books might expect.
Jane, it seems, is returning to one of her earliest characters with an idea to make Jemima a writer and start writing YA fiction by her. She seemed genuinely excited to return to the character and was so delighted to have people at the event.
Join us next Wednesday for our exclusive interview with the lady herself as she reveals more details on Jemima J's next project, her very special writing room, what she misses about the UK and her thoughts on eroticism in novels…
