Don't Make A Scene: Struggles of a Celebrity PA

Having been a Celebrity PA to some of the UK's top TV talent over the last 25 years, I have just published a novel about a young celebrity PA dashing round London fulfilling the requests of her demanding clients.
When one of them has a brush with the law, he expects her to sort things out like she always does - how far is she prepared to compromise her integrity in order to realise her own ambitions?

There will be a short reading followed by a Q&A, discussing the similarities in being a PA and an author - self motivation, working alone, using your initiative and the importance of building a support network. In the book it is her network of well-placed PAs she ultimately turns to for help.
There will be copies of the book available to buy on the day.
