Tickets £6.00

Join us at the Owl Bookshop in Kentish Town for a talk with local author Bee Rowlatt whose new novel One Woman Crime Wave has just been published. Bee will be in conversation with Stephanie Cross.

“One Woman Crime Wave is firmly rooted in NW5… Bee’s take on an unequal society doesn’t come with a side helping of gloom. Instead, her bitterly funny work reflects a wish for a saner, more civilised London.” Camden New Journal

Bee contributed to Virago’s Fifty Shades of Feminism, and clocked over two decades as a journalist for BBC World Service. She’s written for The Telegraph, Grazia, Die Welt, Times, Guardian and Daily Mail, and appears regularly on tv and radio. She hails from Yorkshire, used to be a showgirl, has four kids and lives in London.

Stephanie Cross is a senior literary scout. She has also ghostwritten two Sunday Times top 10 bestselling celebrity memoirs, and reviews fiction for the Daily Mail.


What is your babysitter doing when you’re not there? Fifteen-year-old Ashleigh is clever and charming, all too ready to rush to the rescue of parents in need of relief, and she soon becomes the neighbourhood’s favourite babysitter. But she has an appetite for secrets. Fast-paced, witty and scalpel-sharp, One Woman Crime Wave examines the limits of what money can buy, and how easily the fragile web of middle-class privilege can be torn.
In the end, is it really Ashleigh who’s the problem, or is it the fractious and divided community she exposes?
