Our season of the stars continues with a genuine literary legend. It's Ken Follett! Ken is one of the world’s most successful authors, selling over 188 million copies of his books. He's the creator of Pillars of the Earth, World Without End, Never and his latest The Armour of Light. He recently launched an online course on Writing Bestselling Fiction with BBC Maestro. We talked to him about his formative reads, relishing Proust, creating believable villains and his appearance in the Alan Rickman Diaries. Daisy will be at Henley Literary Festival in early October and at the Margate Bookie at the end of October. Details of Daisy's How To Be a Grown Up event with Sarah Knight are available HERE.
