In the Radio DIVA studio this week Rosie and Heather check back in with author, songwriter and ex-Royal Navy Vicky Jones, who appeared on the first show of 2017 (and received more tweets than any other guest of the year!)

 

 

On leaving the Navy, turning 30 and suffering from depression, Jones compiled a bucket list of ambitions and started ticking them off - writing a book was on that list. 

 

Her debut novel Meet Me At Ten was co-written with her partner Claire, who’ll also be joining the team in the studio. 

 

“Claire and I are really looking to chatting about the book and discussing the issues it raises and the effect it's had on readers.  

 

“We want to change hearts and minds with this book and we are on our way of doing it. Plus it will be good to meet Rosie and Heather again!”

 

Fancy winning a copy of Jones’s novel? Then make sure you tune in and tweet Radio DIVA using the hashtag #MeetMeAt10 for a chance to win a copy of her book.

 

Also in the studio will be writer Jody Klaire talking about the Golden Crown literary society, an organisation that promotes lesbian literature through education and training, and Ghostwriter Jo Monroe who’ll review Wild Bore, the anarchic Edinburgh Fringe hit currently on at Soho Theatre. 

 

And of course, roving reporter and The L Word favourite Rachel Shelley brings us her weekly report, and our fabulous resident lesbro Jonathan Phang will be in the studio with the latest in LGBT headlines from OutNews Global.

 

Make sure you tune in! 

 

 

Listen live to Radio DIVA at 6.30pm every Tuesday (on Resonance 104.4FM and DAB in London and online at player.resonancefm.com) or catch up anytime at mixcloud.com/resonance.
