Upcoming events

Nothing booked at the moment.

Rebecca Farnworth

I didn’t seriously get into writing until I was in my thirties, despite always wanting to be a writer.   Before that I was an English teacher, then worked at the BBC as a radio producer.  I loved working at the BBC.  But I still wanted to write and there never seemed the time.  So I took a leap of faith and decided to go freelance so I could continue to work in radio [and therefore eat – I cannot do the starving artist routine] and finally write. I wrote light-hearted features for magazines, and I started writing my first novel.

The turning point in my career as a writer came when I was interviewed by the literary agent, Maggie Hanbury, who was looking for a ghostwriter for Katie Price’s autobiography. It was one of those life-changing moments, though I didn’t know it at the time.  I got the job and ghost wrote what was to be the first of four best selling autobiographies. I have also ghost written a series of best selling novels with Katie Price.

I have also written three novels under my own name, Valentine and A Funny Thing About Love and my third novel [title tbc] comes out in July 2013.  I would describe them as romantic comedies that should make you smile but also have a bit of grit in them.

I live in Brighton with my husband and three children.
