Author Interview - Emily Benet

Emily was born in London to a Welsh mother and Spanish father, but spent her teenage years in Barcelona.
Her debut book ShopGirl Diaries began as a blog about working in her Mum's eccentric chandelier shop. It won the CompletelyNovel Author Blog Awards at the London Book Fair in 2010 and inspired her script for Shop Girl Blog, a comedy taster starring Katy Wix.

Emily has contributed articles on Blogging and Social Media to guidebooks and magazines including Survival Guide to Journalism, Publishing Talk, The New Writer and Mslexia and runs Blogging for Beginners and Improvers workshops.

She has just signed a two book deal with Harper Collins' digital imprint Harper Impulse and her next book, Spray Painted Bananas, will be coming out in Summer 2014.
