Jill Mansell talks being a dinosaur, falling in love with characters and fountain pens

Bona fide legend Jill Mansell is the latest funny woman to join the Hot Mess Clubhouse. Recorded at a live event in front of an audience at Waterstones Gower Street, host Lucy Vine talks to the author of 30+ books about her writing process, which sees her doing everything by hand with a fountain pen. The legendary and always hilarious author opens up about being more nervous than ever about her work, fancying her characters, vivid dreams, swearing, and being inspired by This Morning. She also talks about her recent book, Maybe This Time and how she got the idea from an upside down sheep.


Music by Harry Harris. Recorded at Waterstones Gower Street and produced by Pineapple Audio Productions.
