Nadine Dorries Book and Novel

Nadine Dorries - Author


Nadine Dorries was born and raised on a council estate in Liverpool in the 1950s and 60s, the dawn of the Mersey beat. Her family were part of a close-knit Irish Catholic community, most of whom came to work on the docks of Merseyside from rural Ireland. Nadine trained as a nurse, working in hospitals in Warrington and Liverpool. After qualifying she moved to Zambia for a year and ran a school for local children. On her return to the UK, she founded, ran and sold her own business, Company Kids Ltd, which provided childcare services for working parents.

Determined to give something back, Nadine entered politics. In the 2005 general elections she was elected as the MP for Mid-Bedfordshire, a position she continues to hold nine years later. One of the most well-known politicians working in Britain, she is renowned for her determination to push her chosen causes to the top of the political agenda. She created a political storm when she described Prime Minister David Cameron and Chancellor George Osborne as ‘two arrogant posh boys’. In 2012 she was a star of ITV’s ‘I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here’.

A successful businesswoman and passionate Member of Parliament, in 2013 Nadine achieved another life long ambition and wrote her debut novel. The Four Streets is the first in series, and Nadine is currently working on the second book, to be published in December 2014.

The books for review are always great reads, brilliantly written, and introduces me to a huge variety of, established and new, authors.

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
