Sunday Times columnist India Knight will be joining us here on Monday 2nd July from 9-10pm for a live chat. India has just published her first children's book 'The Baby' which is about a big brother's relationship with his new baby sister - an absolute must for second-time parents. If you can't make the chat you can post your questions in advance here.
Hope to see you here on Monday.

Shall be steering clear therefore.

Also a big fan, I'm trying to think of a witty and original question. Hmmm.....

She's my role model in the narrow field of Shopping Guruism...

Aloha Fri 29-Jun-07 18:56:11

I really liked 'The Shops'.

edam Fri 29-Jun-07 18:56:18

She was brilliant over the whole Gina Ford debacle, very supportive. So I'm pleased she's coming on.

india knight - phenomenal. I saw her on Matthew Wright v briefly and since then I can actually hear her in my head when reading her books. Of which I have three.

Will hopefully be here on Monday.

Aitch Sat 30-Jun-07 00:37:59

i like 'er. although the diet looks like a right pita.

Aitch Sat 30-Jun-07 00:38:52

and o'hagan is good too, even if he has a touch of the student priest about him.

Dear India.
many thanks for your fantastic diet - have lost over a stone so far and feel great. Only trouble is my darling husband has put on 3/4 of a stone. We sent for Dr Bernsteins as mentioned in pigtotwig but it is very complicated and seems to need medical input. Any ideas for the way forward for him? Do you know anyone who could support us with his way forward - he is insulin dependent for over 25 yrs? I am loathe to cook two different meals but feel I may have to, one with and one without cream etc.... What do you think?
also, should my pee be lime green? (a lot of the time) I feel great!!.....
Many thanks to you for such an easy diet to follow.

I like India Knight - often disagree with her ST column but love a good shout at the paper on a Sunday morning
Have a question though - IK has often spoken out against older mothers. What does she think are the differences between older and younger mothers?

littlelapin Sun 01-Jul-07 19:12:49

I love her. There's a great line in one of her books about being full of "go on my son foxiness" - I use that all the time

toomuchtodo Sun 01-Jul-07 19:16:13

I like her too

hope I remember!

India- in your novels you used to use lots of words like 'spaz' and 'retard' as an insult. Do you still feel it's ok to use these words in that way?

geekgirl Mon 02-Jul-07 06:22:01

oooh, good one mmj! I really, really loathed india's books mainly for that reason. Would really love to know how she feels about it now.
