Lauren Henderson and Greg Herren

Lauren Henderson will sign and discuss her book, Flirting in Italian (Delacorte; $17.99), and her alter ego Rebecca Chance's Killer Heels (Simon & Schuster  UK; $15.95)

Lauren Henderson was born in London and educated at Cambridge, where she studied English literature. She worked as a journalist for newspapers and music magazines before moving to Tuscany to write books, work as a waitress, learn Italian and party through the rest of her twenties. Finally, after eight years, she dragged herself away and, lured by “Sex and the City”, moved to Manhattan. She has now moved back to settle in London, long-suffering husband and an unfeasibly large cat in tow. Lauren’s interests include trapeze, pole-dancing, watching “America’s Next Top Model” on TV, and cocktail-drinking.

Lauren has been described in the press as both the Dorothy Parker and the Betty Boop of the British crime novel. She also writes for many UK-based publications, including Grazia and Cosmopolitan and several national newspapers.

Greg Herren will sign and discuss his book, Sara (Bold Strokes; $13.95) and his alter ego Todd Gregory's book Need (Kensington; $15.00).
