Rom-com creator with a penchant for strong lead voices and everyday disasters.
Born in the Midlands and living in Brighton via Amsterdam, Mo Fanning's first book - The Armchair Bride - was shortlisted for the Arts Council Book of the Year. His second novel - Having it all - recalled eight expat years in the Dutch capital. After a dalliance with short stories - including writing for BBC America and The Guardian, Mo is back in rom com heaven. His third novel is due in 2019.
