Author Q & A

What is your secret vice?

Eating cookies a handful at a time.

What is your favorite time of day?

I love lazy mornings, lying in bed and thinking about the day ahead. But with two small children, I don't get many of them!

How do you indulge yourself when you need a pick me up?

Head to the shops and buy myself a treat!! Or else I take a long bath with Jo Malone bath oil.

What was your most memorable date (good or bad)?

On my eighteenth birthday I had dinner planned with my (then) boyfriend. We got to the restaurant and a whole bunch of friends were there to surprise me. The relationship didn't last but I'll always the remember the party!

What do you appreciate most in your friends?

I appreciate their loyalty, humour and sense of fun.

What woman in history do you admire the most?

Emmeline Pankhurst, who led the suffrage movement. It seems incredible now that women didn't have the vote, it's something we all just take for granted. But it wouldn't have happened without brave women like her.

What was your worst job?

As a financial journalist on the magazine Pensions World, having to write the most boring articles in the world!

What would your theme song be?

'We Are Family' by Sister Sledge. It's such an upbeat, optimistic song, plus I'm very close to all my family, especially my two sisters.

What is your favorite quote?

'I never put off till tomorrow what I can do the day after.' Oscar Wilde

If you weren't a writer, what career would you choose?

I studied music and would have loved to have been a singer-songwriter.

What actress would you want to play you in a movie?

Sandra Bullock as she is so funny and human and has long dark hair like me. It would be a very boring movie though as writers basically just sit in front of a computer... and write!

What scene in your own books are you most surprised you wrote?

The entire ending of Shopaholic Ties The Knot - as when I first started writing it I had no idea how I would get Becky out of her mess!

If you watched the move Confessions of a Shopaholic, then you would love this book. The movie was based on the first book and this one. It was a hilarious book and I completely connected with the character, she was so funny.

"Synopsis" by , Together in one delightful boxed set, here are the first five novels in #1 New York Times bestselling author Sophie Kinsella’s acclaimed Shopaholic series. Follow the hilarious high-fashion adventures of Becky Bloomwood, a spirited young woman with a taste for the finer things in life—if only she could afford them. From London to Manhattan, from singlehood to motherhood, Becky struggles to keep her finances above water—but it will take a lot more than a looming credit-card bill to sink Sophie Kinsella’s irresistible heroine!
"Synopsis" by , The irresistible heroine of Confessions of a Shopaholic and Shopaholic Ties the Knot is back! And this time Becky Bloomwood and her credit cards are headed across the Atlantic.…

With her shopping excesses (somewhat) in check and her career as a TV financial guru thriving, Beckys biggest problem seems to be tearing her entrepreneur boyfriend, Luke, away from work for a romantic country weekend. And worse, figuring out how to pack light. But packing takes on a whole new meaning when Luke announces hes moving to New York for business—and he asks Becky to go with him! Before you can say “Prada sample sale,” Becky has landed in the Big Apple, home of Park Avenue penthouses and luxury boutiques.

Surely its only a matter of time until she becomes an American TV celebrity, and she and Luke are the toast of Gotham society. Nothing can stand in their way, especially with Beckys bills miles away in London. But then an unexpected disaster threatens her career prospects, her relationship with Luke, and her available credit line! Shopaholic Takes Manhattan—but will she have to return it?
