Stephanie is the author of seven books including the Top Ten Bestseller Confessions of a Bad Mother. She published her first book, Gentlemen Prefer My Sister, at 23. Her TV show Dressing for Breakfast got over three million viewers and ran to three series, making Stephanie the third British female – after Carla Lane and Jennifer Saunders – to have single-handedly created a hit narrative comedy.
