Pan Mac strikes deal with It girl Palmer-Tomkinson

<p>Pan Macmillan has bought the rights for two novels by It girl Tara Palmer-Tomkinson, which will be influenced by her &quot;whirlwind life&quot;. Publishing director Jeremy Trevathan acquired the rights from Gordon Wise at Curtis Brown, working in association with Becca Barr Management.<br /><br />The first novel will be called Inheritance and will be published in hardback in autumn 2010. The book will look into a world of &quot;private jets, parties and international intrigue&quot;.<br /><br />Trevathan said: &quot;It&#39;s going to be huge and exciting fun publishing Tara. She&#39;s a sassy storyteller and a revealing raconteur, as millions have seen and adored on TV. So I&#39;d warn everyone to fasten their safety belts. It&#39;s going to be a rollicking rollercoaster ride because, like her, Inheritance is going to be a cheeky, sexy, glamorous, funny and incredibly good-natured read&mdash;absolutely pure, brilliant escapism.&quot;<br /><br />Palmer-Tomkinson has worked on television as a presenter, a columnist and starred in the TV show &quot;I&#39;m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here&quot;. She previously co-wrote The Naughty Girl&rsquo;s Guide to Life with Sharon Marshall, which was published by Little, Brown/Sphere in 2007.<br /><br />Palmer-Tomkinson said: &quot;I&rsquo;m thrilled to be working with Pan Macmillan on my first two novels. I can&rsquo;t possibly reveal which parts are true and which are fabricated, but I hope people have as much of an exciting time reading them as I do working on them.&quot;<br /><br />She added: &quot;And having experienced such a whirlwind life I&rsquo;m very relieved they have signed me up for two books&mdash;I don&rsquo;t think I could fit everything into one! Huge thanks to Pan Macmillan for their faith in me, and I can&rsquo;t wait to deliver to them as the first is well underway.&quot;</p>
