Sphere signs two more from Finnigan

Sphere has signed two more books from TV presenter and novelist Judy Finnigan.

Catherine Burke, publisher for Sphere Fiction, signed world rights in the two books in a deal with Luigi Bonomi at LBA Associates.

Finnigan's first novel, Eloise, was released in 2012, with her second, I Do Not Sleep set for publication in February 2015, with a paperback following in July.

Burke said: "Judy is a wonderful author, writing books packed with intense emotion, page-turning suspense and stunningly re-created and atmospheric locations."

Finnigan and husband Richard Madeley presented ITV's "This Morning" from 1988 to 2001, and a daily chat show, "Richard & Judy", from 2001 to 2009. On "Richard & Judy", they began the successful Richard & Judy Book Club. Madeley is also a novelist, published by Simon & Schuster.
