Alexandra Potter was brought up in Yorkshire, but now lives in London. She used to be a freelance sub-editor and features writer for various women’s magazines, until one she decided to actually sit down and write ‘that’ book she was always going on about. Life was never the same again. An agent and a book deal followed and ‘What’s New, Pussycat?’ was published by Fourth Estate in April in 2000. Her second novel, ‘Going La La’, was published in March 2001.
