A Dr Brooke Magnanti. She looks nothing like Billie Piper.
and for that alone, I salute her
that is actually quite intriguing.
seeing as one of our depts publishes her books. Didn't realise her identity was going to be revealed.

It's not like Girl With A One Track Mind being outed just as interest in that blog was at a peak - I think even the TV version has been cancelled now. It seems an afterthought to put people's various minds at rest rather than SHOCK HORROR oh hang on it's someone you've never heard of.
Is she empowering?

call me a prude but the idea of selling myself dosn't really make me feel "empowered." Thats just me though..
