We can’t wait to talk to Sophie Heawood and Simon Stephenson in our live room. Sophie is a leading British journalist, who writes about modern life and interviews celebrities for The Guardian, The Sunday Times, and Vogue. Her new book ‘The Hungover Games’ is a hilarious memoir about pregnancy and motherhood and is a laugh out loud read. Simon is a writer and screenwriter who wrote the memoir ‘Let Not The Waves Of The Sea’, about the loss of his brother Dominic in the Indian Ocean tsunami in 2004 and his latest novel ‘Set my heart to 5’ is about a robot who catches feelings.
