Jacqueline Wilson has spoken publicly for the first time about her personal life and the fact that she has lived “very happy” with her partner Trish for 18 years.

The best-selling children’s novelist, who has often been asked why she hadn’t written more about gay characters, tackles the subject in her 111th book, Love Frankie, in which tomboy Frankie falls in love with Sally, the prettiest girl in her class. Wilson told Guardian Review in an interview published on Saturday that she had put her “heart and soul” into the story, and said that she knew “perfectly well that it would shed some light on my own private life” .
