Coronation Street writer pens soap novel
In an interview with the Liverpool Echo, Jonathan says this about the heroine of his book: “I think there’s a lot of me in her if I’m honest. She’s certainly not based on any one particular person. Or even an amalgam of people really.”
Jonathan's novel is about Jodie McGee, a fictional character and star of a Liverpool-based soap called Acacia Avenue. It's published next week by Pan Macmillan next week and Corrie gets a few mentions in the book too.
And the novel is already being turned into an audiobook, read by Liverpool actress Leanne Best, who worked on Corrie! the stage play.
Jonathan's novel All She Wants is out next week, price £7.99.
Keep tuned into the Coronation Street Blog as we'll be offering four copies of the novel as competition prizes very soon!
