Start the weekend (and half term) off in the relaxing atmosphere of CUBE Cafe - and a look at real women in fiction.

Have you ever read a book and thought - yes that's me - that's exactly how I feel, and wondered how the author has managed to create such a relatable character? Join two Derbyshire-born women's fiction authors Tracy Bloom and Laura Jane Williams as they discuss how they approach writing about women at various stages in their lives. Where do they get their inspiration from? Do they use personal experiences? How do they reflect what is going on in women's lives today?

Born in Derbyshire, Laura Jane Williams’ debut novel Our Stop was an international hit and she is currently adapting it for screen. She has also written non-fiction including Ice Cream for Breakfast and The Life Diet, and written for the Telegraph, the Guardian, Marie Claire, the Independent, Cosmopolitan and Stylist Magazine. Previously a columnist for both Grazia and Red, her next novel is the hotly-anticipated The Lucky Escape.

Tracy Bloom's debut romantic comedy novel, No-One Ever Has Sex on a Tuesday was a No1 Bestseller and has been translated into over a dozen languages. Her first book was based on a women going through pregnancy but for her latest (11th) novel she has focused on the chaotic and funny diary of a middle-aged women trying to find her life when everything around her is changing: The Wife Who Got A Life.
