Join them as they discuss where the inspiration for The Push and Invisible Girl came from, and what it takes to write a gripping thriller that keeps the reader turning the page. Ashley will talk about her compelling and inventive debut that asks what happens when women are not believed - and challenges everything we think we know about motherhood. Lisa will discuss her latest novel that is dark and filled with twists, a story of secrets and injustices, and how we often look in the wrong places for bad people.

They will be in conversation with Daisy Buchanan, award winning journalist and author. Her upcoming novel Insatiable is available now.

    'I think she pushed him,' I said to you quietly. 'I think she pushed him . . .'

    The arrival of baby Violet was meant to be the happiest day of my life. But as soon as I held her in my arms I knew something wasn't right.

    I had always known that the women in my family aren't meant to be mothers.

    My husband Fox says I'm imagining it. He tells me I'm nothing like my own mother, and that Violet is the sweetest child.

    But she's different with me. Something feels very wrong.

    Is it her? Or is it me? Is she the monster? Or am I?

    The Push is an unsettling, breathtaking and powerful read about obsession and our deepest fears that will stay with you long after you turn the final page.
