Shelf life: Dinah Jefferies

The bestselling novelist shares her five favourite reads with Judith Spelman

Dinah Jefferies was born in Malaysia and lived in many countries around the world before settling in England. She started writing in Spain when, as she explains, quite a lot of money was lost in the financial crisis of 2008. She and her husband had to sell up and move back to England to earn money again. She had been thinking of trying to write a novel but when the money was lost it motivated her to start. Knowing nothing about writing, she just plunged in, sticking Post-It notes around the house saying, ‘you will write a bestseller’. And she did. Her second novel, The Tea Planter’s Wife, became a Sunday Times number one. Her latest novel is The Silk Merchant’s Daughter and is already receiving critical acclaim.
