Meet Caitlin Moran, author of 'How to be a Woman'

Tuesday 7 July 7.00am - 7.30am, WHSmith Books, Departure Lounge, Terminal 3

A number one Sunday Times bestseller in hardback and now number one in paperback, from Caitlin Moran, the award-winning and Sunday Times bestselling author of How to Be a Woman.

My name's Johanna Morrigan. I'm Fourteen, and I've just decided to kill myself.

I don't really want to die, of course! I just need to kill Johanna, and build a new girl. Dolly Wilde will be everything I want to be, and more! But as with all the best coming-of-age stories, it doesn't exactly go to plan...

'spirited coming of age novel romps from strength to strength...I'm a Moran fan' - Lionel Shriver, The Times.

Joel Havea is a man of many talents. A skilled songwriter, natural singer, great guitarist and an overall engaging performer whose songs demonstrate his wide ranging musical and cultural influences.

With his unique background, Joel is certainly well prepared to handle the impressive new heights being reached by his music. Coming from the vibrant, eclectic music scene in Australia's cultural capital of Melbourne, Joel cut his teeth playing live from a young age, as part of “the Havea Brothers” duo with his younger brother Dave. In the process, he developed his own brand of reggae infused acoustic song-writing with pop sensibilities, no doubt also influenced by his mixed Tongan and Dutch heritage.
