Families, eh? Can't live with 'em, can't live without 'em! The ups and downs of family life are a rich source of material for Janey Fraser’s new novel, Happy Families. She describes its genre as 'mom lit' (a close relative of chick lit).

In the special 'Evening With…', the author, journalist and creative writing teacher will be talking about herself, her career and, how she got into writing, and offering tips to budding writers on how to get a publisher.

Her many other books include The Au Pair and The Playgroup, while under the name Sophie King she has written novels including The School Run and Divorce For Beginners as well as numerous short stories for women's magazines. She has appeared on breakfast TV and been interviewed on Women’s Hour on the Radio 4.

Signed copies of Happy Families will be available on the night for just £4.99, or in advance from Theresa Clarke (call 020 8336 2852).
