Calling all commoners!
Everyone has royal wedding fever this week so to get into the spirit it is time to make your selections, enthusiastically wave your British flag and elegantly point us towards your… Queens of Women’s Fiction.
I struggled to reduce my list of royalty (Marian Keyes? Wendy Holden? Catherine Alliot? Sophie Kinsella?… the choices seemed endless) to four female writers. But, after much nail biting and head chopping, here are mine below.
So ladies and gentlemen, may I introduce…
The Queen of Spades…Queen Jenny Colgan
The Queen of Diamonds…Queen Helen Fielding
The Queen of Clubs…Queen Phillipa Gregory
And lastly the Queen of Hearts…it has to be…Her Royal Highness, Queen Jilly Cooper
