The internationally best-selling novelist Tasmina Perry, whose novels regularly appear in the Sunday Times bestsellers lists and are published in 17 countries, will talk about achieving success in a highly competitive field. A trained lawyer, she became a journalist, and was editor of InStyle when she left to concentrate on her writing. Her debut novel, Daddy’s Girls, was an instant bestseller and many more followed.
She now writes psychological thrillers under the pseudonym J L Butler and her first, Mine, was bought by HarperCollins and fifteen other countries after the film rights were sold to Sony Pictures. She has also co-written a series of YA vampire novels with her husband John Perry, under the pseudonym Mia James. She is a regular contributor to TV and radio, and edits a daily blog on travel, style and the places that have inspired her novels.
