Multi-award-winning journalist and author Yomi Adegoke has had a formidable past five years. In 2018, she co-wrote the bestselling book, Slay In Your Lane, the very same year she was named one of the most influential people in London by the Evening Standard. Yomi also made the coveted Forbes 30 under 30 list in 2021. Her debut novel, The List, promises to be just as impressive..

Think romcoms are all tired gendered stereotypes or outdated Mills and Boons bonkbusters? Think again. After being selected as one of ten PRH WriteNow mentees, Laura Kay developed her debut, The Split,  the refreshing retelling of modern-day (and self) love we all need.

A freelance journalist based in London, Lucy Vine regularly writes and edits for the likes of Heat, Stylist, and Marie Claire. She also writes a weekly news column for Grazia Daily. Her debut novel, Hot Mess, was an eBook number-one bestseller.

Daisy Buchanan is your host. You’ll know her pretty well by this stage in the proceedings, so no need to another bio, right?
