Debut author of romantic comedy from the UK. First novel The Story After Us now available from Aria Fiction.
I was a journalist and copywriter before building a career as a sales and marketing director in industry. Having always written, I completed the Curtis Brown Creative Writing course before writingThe Story After Us.
As a mother and stepmother to four teenagers while holding down a fairly full-on job, I wanted to write grown-up commercial fiction about messy, modern love and families - with all their heartbreak, humour and hope.
I grew up in Cornwall, the most southern part of England, hung out for a long time in London and then Hertfordshire, and now I write as often as possible from my study overlooking the sea at the end of The Lizard peninsula - back in beautiful Cornwall.
I'm probably there at the moment writing my second novel for Aria.
I am a writer, a massive reader, a mother and a wife - I love people, walking and talking.
