  • Cindy Blake


    Cindy Blake, 54, an American writer born in Boston and living in London. I grew up playing poker with my brothers, joined a weekly poker game when I was working for Doubleday Bookstore in NYC in my early twenties; my fellow players were six booksellers - all men. For a while I stopped playing, then met Tony Holden who brought me back to the tables. When he spent his year playing poker for Big Deal, I became The Moll and accompanied him to tournaments all over the world.

    My novels include one based on poker - It's My Party. The heroine, Isabel, is a secret card shark and spends her weekend nights at casinos in London. I had fun writing it, partly because it's one of the few books I know of in which a woman poker player features.

    In 2001 I took part in the first televised Celebrity Poker Tournament on the Challenge Channel. I made it to the final table and came third, watching with pleasure as sports stars like Stephen Hendry and Tony Cascarino bit the dust before me.

    A journalist as well as novelist, I've written columns for The Sunday Times and Sunday Telegraph as well as writing articles for The Daily Mail, The Express and the FT.

    My novels are: Girl Talk, Blood Sugar, Second Wives, Foreign Correspondents, I Saw You First, It's My Party and The Last Available Man.
