Sam Binnie was the 2005 winner of the Harper's / Orange Prize Short Story Competition, and lives in London with her husband and two children. She is still embarrassed that she forced people to camp at her wedding. The Wedding Diaries is her first book. She is currently writing The Baby Diaries, which will be published in March 2013, and suffering flashbacks to the horrors of antenatal classes.
Shortlisted for The Melissa Nathan Award For Comedy Fiction About Life and Love 2013.

With an ever-expanding waistline, her nightmare childhood friend Annie pregnant too, all the problem authors at Polka Dot Books she could (not) wish for and an army of NW London's Smug Mothers to deal with, these nine months might not be the nine months of blooming relaxation she'd been promised...
