Me Headshot

In Episode 4 of the Brit Lit podcast, I chat to Lindsey Kelk, the best-selling author of the I Heart series, among other rom com novels. We talk about reading inappropriate books as child, discuss the relative merits of LA and New York, and gush over John Green.

(A note on my book links: they take you to Amazon, and I get a few pence per sale at no extra cost to you if you click them and buy from there, which will help me make this podcast viable long-term. But better than Amazon, who are, let’s be honest, not the greatest, is Blackwells or Waterstones, or, even better, your local independent bookshop. If you live in the US or elsewhere further afield, you can find UK books at Book Depository (also owned by Amazon) at a good price and with no postage cost, or you can buy them from Amazon US, or, even better, an independent bookshop.)
