The first thing you need to know about me is, I like gin. Lots and lots of gin.
I live in the South East of England in a lovely little town by the sea and spend my time working, running around after my kids, walking our King Charles Spaniel, Wotsit, and writing!
I love history and have a Master’s degree, but have also been lucky enough to work in various castles and museums over the years. I’ve yet to get one of them into a story though – I really must try harder!
The other things I love most in the world are – chocolate, frothy coffee, wine, truffles (which I know are technically chocolate, but when you fill them with booze they’re divine and become so much more than just chocolate. I mean, they pretty much become an out of body experience!) and more gin.
Writing has been a dream of mine since I was little. I wrote my first story about a mermaid when I was 9 and was thoroughly delighted to show it off to my teacher as I’d written a whopping four whole pages, complete with illustrations. After a couple of life changing experiences over the last few years, I rediscovered my passion and knew I had to give it my all and try my luck at getting a book deal. In January 2018 I did!
My debut novel The Little Theatre on the Seafront came out in September 2018 and is a funny, heart-tingling contemporary romance. My second and third books will come out in 2019. Some of my short stories have already been published in various magazines and links can be found on the Publications page. Please check them out and let me know what you think!
