Fiona Neill moves to Penguin's Michael Joseph

25th May 2010

Bestselling author Fiona Neill is to publish two novels through Penguin after moving from Random House.

Penguin imprint Michael Joseph has acquired the rights to What The Nanny Saw, which follows the story of a young woman caught up in the scandal of a wealthy London family, and will publish the title in the summer of 2011.

Mari Evans, publishing director at Michael Joseph, said she is 'over the moon' that Neill will join her firm's list, adding: 'She writes timely and compulsive novels that appeal to the zeitgeist and she'll be a perfect complement to our women's fiction portfolio. We feel incredibly lucky to have her.'

Neill's debut - The Secret Life of a Slummy Mummy - was published in 2007 and was based on her column in The Times. The book and Friends, Lovers and Other Indiscretions, her second novel, featured in The Sunday Times bestsellers list and sold more than 500,000 copies.

A review of her debut in the Daily Telegraph described it as a 'hilarious depiction' of the life of a stay-at-home mother, while the Boston Globe applauded its comic timing.
