The multimillion copy, internationally bestselling author of some of the most widely loved, genre-defying novels of the past thirty years - including Watermelon, Anybody Out There and Grown Ups - has millions of fans around the world. They are irresistibly drawn by her warmth and wit, fearless honesty, relatable characters and relationships, and sheer storytelling magic. Not only has Marian inspired and entertained countless readers, but also the next generation of writers too. As a beloved author herself, Marian is a passionate champion of storytellers everywhere, playing an active role in encouraging new voices. She has been the chair of judges for the Comedy Women in Print prize, a sponsor of the Curtis Brown Creative Novel-Writing Scholarship, and most recently ran her own hugely popular Instagram Live series bringing free creative writing courses to thousands of viewers. Marian also uses her position to raise some of the most challenging issues of our time, including addiction, immigration, depression, domestic violence and the Repeal the Eighth campaign. Both critically acclaimed and commercially unstoppable, Marian's fifteenth novel, Again, Rachel - the sequel to her groundbreaking novel Rachel's Holiday - was a No. 1 bestseller in four global territories: UK, Ireland, South Africa and New Zealand, and a No. 1 Audible bestseller. In addition to her novels, Marian has written two collections of journalism, one of which was used as the inspiration of her hit BBC Radio 4 show Between Ourselves.
