Episode 79: Emily Benet

Emily Benet

Emily Benet is an author, journalist and award-winning blogger.

She writes contemporary fiction.

Her titles include the blog-to-book retail comedy, Shop Girl Diaries, the quirky romantic comedy, The Temp, and a novel about social media addiction, #PleaseRetweet.

Her fourth novel, The Hen Party, is a fun, fast-paced reality TV saga set in the island of Mallorca.

Tired of the lack of support that she got with her traditionally published books, Emily decided to go it alone with her most recent book, opting for self-publication.

Episode 79, release date Monday 4th September, 2017
