Jill Mansell

Jill Mansell lives with her partner and children in Bristol, and writes full time. Actually that's not true; she watches TV, eats fruit gums, admires the rugby players training in the sports field behind her house, and spends hours on the internet Tweeting and marvelling at how many other writers have blogs. Only when she's completely run out of displacement activities does she actually write.

And it might just be the beginning of something special...What readers are saying about Good at Games: 'This book is hilariously funny, addictive and you just can't stop once you've started. It's my favourite romantic comedy book of all time' Amazon reviewer, 5 stars'A really fun read in Jill's usual style.
