Dawn O'Porter - So Lucky

Read more

Dawn O’Porter is this week’s featured author in the Richard and Judy Book Club. So Lucky is a bold, confident, and very funny book examining how social media can make women’s lives look far more perfect than they really are.

Dawn discusses her own relationship with social media, why she’s so confident writing about sex, and how her friend’s experience of polycystic ovaries inspired one of the characters.

Head to your local WHSmith or www.whsmith.co.uk to buy your special edition copy of So Lucky, and browse the entire seasonal Book Club collection.

#227 Dawn O'Porter: Is Anyone's Life As Perfect As It Looks?

Read more

It's been a Dawn O'Porter themed week! I hosted Q&A event with Dawn at Foyles which was so fun, we then recorded the podcast, and then her launch party!

Dawn is the author of 6 books including the award-winning YA books Paper Aeroplanes and Goose, her first adult novel The Cows was a Sunday Times Bestseller and her latest book "SO LUCKY" is totally fantastic. The novel is about three women and how life really isn't as perfect as it looks. Ruby is feeling like she's failing as a mother and woman, Beth is in a sexless marriage and online influencer Lauren is not telling the truth on Instagram.

We talk about writing fiction, finding inspiration and the power of saying no and quitting something that is making you miserable. If you enjoyed this chat please do rate/review!

#116 Dawn O'Porter: On Not Following The Herd

Read more

Dawn O'Porter is a novelist, columnist and broadcaster who lives in Los Angeles with her husband Chris, two songs, cat Lilu and dog Potato. She has made numerous documentaries about all sorts of things: polygamy, childbirth, Geisha, body image, breast cancer and even the movie Dirty Dancing. She is the critically acclaimed author of Paper Aeroplanes and Goose and The Sunday Times Bestseller The Cows.

Dawn helped launch ‘Help Refugees’ in 2015, a charity that sends urgent care to refugees across Europe. She is also the host of ‘Get It On’, a weekly podcast where she interviews interesting people about why they wear what they wear.

The Cows is a powerful novel about three women – judging each other, but also themselves. In all the noise of modern life, they need to find their own voice. Tara, Cam and Stella are strangers living their own lives as best they can – though when society’s screaming you should live life one way, it can be hard to like what you see in the mirror.

When an extraordinary event ties invisible bonds of friendship between them, one woman’s catastrophe becomes another’s inspiration, and a life lesson to all. The book is all about how it’s sometimes OK to not follow the herd.

In this episode we talk about writing novels, motherhood, growing up, the power of quitting and the importance of knowing yourself the best out of everyone.
