Media Week 30 under 30: Rhianwen Hart, SMV Group

Is it cheating if I stitch together all the Harry Potters into one big book? If so, I would pack Daphne Du Maurier’s ‘Frenchman’s Creek’, as it is equally wonderful at transporting you to another world of imagination and magic – albeit a different type of magic – and it involves a pirate, so great for ideas on how to escape a desert island!
