'I've chosen to be an ambassador for The Reading Agency's Six Book Challenge 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 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 eleven novels in eleven years, and all of her novels have been top ten bestsellers. Her work has been translated in to twenty-five different languages. Adele has 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. Adele's latest novel Spare Brides was published in February 2014.
