 Hemsley and Hemsley

Sisters Jasmine and Melissa Hemsley have taken the health and wellness industry by storm since launching their family-run business in 2010 for people who want to live healthier, happier lives. Within two weeks of creating their blog the girls were asked to contribute to Vogue.co.uk, where they are still regular columnists. In 2015 the Hemsleys launched their sell-out Hemsley Spiralizer, the new must-have kitchen tool. Hemsley + Hemsley continue to cook and consult for celebrities and high-profile events around the world.

A keen canoeist, Steve paddled the length of the Wensum between Ringland and Norwich many times to capture the photos used in his latest book.

He initiated and ran the special guest editor programmes and has also worked on various special projects including collaborations with the Manchester International Festival and Glastonbury. He lives in London with his wife and two children.


A Dying Breed

When a bomb goes off killing a local official, William Carver, a veteran but unpredictable BBC hack, is warned off the story from every direction.  But his instincts tell him something isn’t right and he won’t give up until he finds the truth. Patrick, a junior producer, is sent out to control the wayward Carver, but as the story unravels it looks like powerful forces are colluding to ensure the real story never sees the light of day.

Set in a shadowy le-Carre-esque world, A Dying Breed is about journalism in a time of war, about how hard it is to tell the stories that need to be told and how much easier it is not to.
