Katie Price launched her tenth novel Make My Wish Come True this week at the Worx Studios London. She is many things, and among them, a best-selling author. The 36-year-old has freely admitted that she doesn’t actually write her books, but instead comes up with the plots, talks through her ideas with a ghostwriter and then OKs each chapter as they’re written.
She says: “I like reading books about real-life stuff. I always forget the name… there’s a book about a woman who was captured – the Natascha Kampusch one -3,096 Days-. I like reading books like that and A Child Called It. It fascinates me and revolts me what people can do to other human beings. But I like reading real-life stuff. I suppose the books that I read are quite shocking, but there’s not a book that’s made me cry.
When I was younger I used to like nursery rhymes. But then as I was able to read proper small print I was all into horsey ones, especially a series called Jill -by Ruby Ferguson- and another called Jinny -by Patricia Leitch-. My kids absolutely love reading, but they’re old enough to read themselves so I don’t need to read to them. They did read my children’s books but they’re older now, it’s boring for them now.”
