CTRL, ALT, DELETE Podcast: #58 Sophie Kinsella (On A Not So Perfect Life)

Sophie Kinsella is an international bestselling author – she has sold 7 million copies of her books worldwide.

She is a household name after finding fame with her hugely popular Shopaholic series in 2000. Her novels have been translated into 30 languages and her Shopaholic novels were made into films starring Isla Fisher. Last year, she made her first foray into the YA world with Finding Audrey – which was chosen by Zoella in her WHSmith 2017 book club.  

Her new book, My Not So Perfect Life is about the way that social media makes us feel. The way we look at other people’s Instagram feeds and think ‘god, their life is perfect’ and comparing ourselves to others and have “perfect” role models on the other side of a computer screen.

In this episode we talk about our addiction to social media, Sophie’s writing process, how to find and commit to new ideas and the temptation of online comparison.
