Everything it takes to get your brilliant story published.
Justine Picardie is a journalist, novelist and memoirist and fashion biographer. Until recently she was editor of Harpers Bazaar magazine. I first encountered her through her publication of Before I Say Goodbye, a collection of pieces by and about her sister Ruth who died of cancer in 1997. We talk about how that book came about, and how fashion and family weave their way through all her writing, including her latest book about Catherine, the sister of Christian Dior.
