Breakfast with C J Daugherty, author of Night School

To the not-so-secret Wolseley (ahem, again this week) for breakfast with the author C J Daugherty, whose young adult fictions, Night School and Night School Legacy (both published by Atom) are gaining a large following on the web. Daugherty was intrigued by the idea of the Bullingdon Club picture that did the rounds a few years ago, and wanted to find out what it would be like to be born into privilege, with such confidence, and hence was generated her first book.

We were treated, whilst consuming the most perfectly scrumptious eggs benedict, to an atmospheric trailer for the books, which concern a high-profile school and a secret society. They certainly look thrilling. Of course, I can't tell you what else happened at breakfast - that's far too secret... (although there was a representative of Books for Keeps there, who wrote a brilliant review of The Liberators, which was an added pleasure.) Daugherty's books are already bestsellers across the world - keep an eye out for them if you love young adult fiction.
