A bit about us - get in touch. We'd love to hear from you.
I completed my first novel in 2007. At the time, I was running a wedding flower business alongside a busy life being a mother. Juggling home and work, somewhere in there, I managed to self-publish three books.
The third, Wildflowers, almost found me an agent, but not quite! It was after that, in 2013, that I wrote The Bones of You, my first psychological thriller and found my agent, Juliet Mushens. My first book deal with Pan Macmillan followed soon after.
Since, I've had four more psychological thrillers published. My sixth, The Secret, is out in January 2022. I write full time, and for the first time in a while, I’ve been writing books in a different genre – more on that to follow!
I passionately believe in following your dreams. I'm inspired by beauty in all its forms, be it nature, words, music, the sky, sunsets; by the ideas of synchronicity and coincidence, connectedness, the untapped power of our minds; by my children, by the growing realisation of just how little I will ever know…
Having never applied for a job; all my work has come as a result of people I've met along the way.
From a teenager collecting eggs on a Sussex farm and Laurence Olivier's window cleaner, I then experienced many different things including writing and releasing the 1982 Glastonbury festival official single, playing live on Radio 1 alongside Johnny Rotten, working at Shepperton film studios, becoming a voiceover artist for various radio stations including Capital and Kiss, writing advertising copy for brands including Marks & Spencer and UniLever, contributing as an "independent marketing specialist" on BBC Radio 5 current affairs programmes, providing live cricket commentary in Jamaica, and finally becoming the marketing director of a London based international marketing agency.
Now, my aim is to combine the best bits of all my experiences and see what comes to the surface.
I recently self-published my first novel, Spaghetti Bolognaise a comedic mystery set in London and Italy. So far the reviews have been encouraging enough to keep me going and my second novel is well underway!
