THE AUTHOR of a best-selling novel will be presenting it at the University of Chichester – where she took her degree.

Gabrielle Kimm, whose book The Courtesan’s Lover broke into the top 100 paperbacks chart over Christmas, will visit the university’s Bishop Otter campus to give it a special launch next Wednesday.

She started the book on the MA in creative writing at Chichester, in 2007, under the supervision of English tutor Karen Stevens.
