A New York Times best-selling author of three critically acclaimed novels and renowned journalist for titles including Vogue, ELLE and Wired, Janelle Brown has the gift of the gab – and that’s putting it lightly. When she’s not busy writing or on the promotion trail for her latest thriller release, Watch Me Disappear, this San Franciscan mother of two is poring over trashy magazines and day-dreaming of dinner dates with Barack and Michelle Obama.

But how does she cheat the week? We’ll let Janelle do the talking...
