I'd love to keep in touch. Sign up to my newsletter and I'll let you know about future book and events plans.
I have been writing for as long as I can remember. It’s my way of thinking about the world and connecting with people.
I write books that I would love to read, or that my teenage self would have loved to read.
My heroines are making their way through the world. Some are raising families and negotiating the world of work; some are still at school. All are living through turmoil and drama, they’re falling in and out of love, mending their hearts, leaning on their friends, starting over, or simply carrying on.
My characters always take over when I write. I see the world through their eyes, suffer with them, cry their tears, write the funny scenes to cheer them up and hope so hard that they will have their happy ending.
