Menna Van Praag worked as a reader for BBC Films and TV and as a script editor for a number of independent production companies. She still works as a freelance script editor/consultant. She self-published her novella, 'Men, Money and Chocolate'. Nine months later she sold it to Hay House and today it's been translated into 26 languages - so far. The sequel, 'Happier Than She's Ever Been', followed a year later.
'The House at the End of Hope Street' was published by Penguin in... 2013. Random House published 'The Dress Shop of Dreams' and 'The Witches of Cambridge'. Allison & Busby have published all three novels in the UK. She's currently working on her new novel, 'The Three Acts of Aubrey H. Gagne'.
Menna will be talking about "Folklore, Fables and Fairy Tales: A Feminist Perspective" on the 12th of May.
