'I've chosen to be an ambassador for The Reading Agency because I believe it gives reluctant readers a huge opportunity to start enjoying reading.'
Adele believes reading is a basic human right, so she has worked closely with us as an ambassador of Reading Ahead (formerly the Six Book Challenge) our programme designed to encourage adult literacy.
Adele Parks worked in advertising until she published her first novel, Playing Away, in 2000, which was the debut bestseller of that year. Adele has gone on to publish 17 novels in 17 years, all of which have been Sunday Times bestsellers. Her latest novel, I Invited her In, is published in September 2018.
Adele had spent her adult life in Italy, Botswana and London until 2005 when she moved to Guildford, where she now lives with her husband and son.
