After a successful career in television, Maeve Haran turned to writing. She is now a worldwide bestseller and the author of eleven novels, including HAVING IT ALL, which was translated into twenty-six languages. As well as writing novels, she is a journalist, who concentrates especially on lifestyle and women’s issues, and an author of short stories. She has been involved in speaking and lecturing from early in her career. In 1994, she spoke alongside Ken Follett and Deborah Moggach at the Cottesloe in the National Theatre, examining the culture of the bestseller and its literary value. Subsequently, she has spoken both about her books and about her life at venues ranging from schools to literary festivals. In May 2009, she gave a talk at the Surrey History Centre, focusing on the research she undertook for her work on John Donne and his wife. Later that year, she spoke with Emma Buchan about the process of changing history into fiction, at the Guildford Book Festival. Most recently, she gave a talk in Cambridge, to Newnham College, entitled, ‘Getting Ahead: Ten Tips to Tell my Daughters’. She also appeared on SCOTTISH WOMEN, speaking about her book, HAVING IT ALL.
