Jennie Rooney, Gemma Tuley and Emeli Sande

‘Top of your reading list’ - Jennie Rooney, 29

Author Jennie has been shortlisted for the Costa First Novel Award, and her first book was also named a Richard & Judy book club choice.

“Jennie writes with extraordinary insight – she’s a fresh, bright wit,” says Jennie’s editor, Clara Farmer.


‘Gordon Ramsay’s protégé’ - Gemma Tuley, 27

Having trained under Ramsey’s watchful eye, Tuley is currently head chef at Manson restaurant in London, SW6.

Even Gordon Ramsay was impressed by her determination.  “Gemma had a single-mindedness that was almost unnerving.  She held her own in that kitchen,” he said.


‘On your iPod’ - Emeli Sande, 23

Young singer-songwriter Emeli has created a buzz in the music industry, recently being signed by Stellar songs (part of EMI).

Former Red’s Hot Women award winner songwriter Miranda Cooper says, “She’s part of an exciting new generation of producers and writers, and I am always hearing great things about her.”
