But Nadine Dorries is also a published author who has written more than a dozen novels since 2014 and has sold more than 2.5 million copies, according to Head of Zeus, her publisher.
Dorries has written about Irish people living in Liverpool after the Second World War, nurses working in a Liverpool hospital... after the Second World War, and even one about the 19th-century Irish famine.
Labour MP Dawn Butler has questioned how Dorries has time to write so many books as an MP while others have cheered her on. Meanwhile, a new Twitter account has even emerged posting extracts from her books on a daily basis.
