Mira signs TV's Jemma Forte

Harlequin has acquired two women’s fiction novels by TV presenter Jemma Forte, for its MIRA list.

Harlequin MIRA editor Sally Williamson bought UK and Commonwealth rights, excluding Canada, from Madeleine Milburn at Madeleine Milburn Literary, TV & Film agency.

Williamson said: “I’m delighted to welcome Jemma to MIRA. I absolutely love her sharply witty and warm writing, and how she deals with emotional issues in a wonderfully upbeat way.”

The first title, If You’re Not The One, tells the story of a young mother who sees what her life would have been like had she made different choices along the way.

Forte, who has appeared on Nickelodeon, the Disney Channel and The National Lottery, has previously published two books, Me and Miss M and From London with Love, with Penguin.
If You’re Not The One will be published in February 2014, with book two scheduled for release in 2015.
