Charlotte Reed: may the thoughts be with you
10th November 2014

What do Natalie Imbruglia and the King of Brunei have in common? They're both fans of Charlotte Reed, whose new books is out this weekend. 

Charlotte began drawing and writing whilst suffering chronic depression. At first, it was inspirational messages for herself - but these quickly drew fans. She recently turned these into a book which she is selling at her stall on

Portobello Road, after leaving her job to do so. 

Natalie Imbruglia loves the book so much she wrote the forward and has gave copies to her friends - so now Charlotte can count David Walliams and Kylie Minogue among her fans. 

Fun fact: The Notting Hill bookshop, famous for featuring in Notting Hill, was the first bookshop to start selling her book.
