At the same time The Bookseller reports that Penguin notched up sales in 2012 of over one billion and recorded profits of £100m or so.

Her heroines are ordinary women who do extraordinary things for love, and she has a knack of making her characters leap off the page - reading What Have I Done, I cried for Katherine as if she were my best friend.
