Greetings all

I’m a writer living in south-west England on the red shores of the Jurassic Coast. It’s a beautiful, mysterious part of the country, steeped in myth and folklore. And so unsurprisingly, it’s a perfect place in which to make up stories.

In the vein of most writers, I’ve been making up stories for a long time. Despite attending theatre school for six years, books were my first love. My parents read a lot to us as children – I guess it’s their fault my sister and I both turned out as authors!

I have a BA Hons in English & Creative Writing and an MA in Creative Writing, both from the University of London, and four books published with Pan Macmillan. I also work for Waterstones Booksellers and co-host the award-winning intersectional feminist podcast, ‘Breaking the Glass Slipper’, which you can read more about right here.

I’m represented by Veronique Baxter of David Higham Associates. If you’re curious, you can check out my latest release, Sistersong, and my Events page for info about where I’ll be next. I am always happy to hear from you. Please use the contact form on this website, or reach out to me on my social channels.
