Hello, and thanks for your visit.

Although I have lived in southern France for the last ten years – currently inhabiting quite a shabby stone house in the middle of nowhere with my husband and our two young daughters – I grew up in Mexborough, South Yorkshire.

I studied economics at Newnham College, Cambridge and then spent twenty years working in business before finally deciding what I want to be when I grow up.

My first novel - The Night Rainbow - is published by Bloomsbury

I also write short fiction, which has been published online and in print and has been recognised by fancy places such as BBC Radio 4 Opening Lines, New Scientist, The Bristol Short Story Prize, the Sean O’Faolain Short Story Competition and Metazen.

If you’d like a taste of that you can also read some of my darker flash fiction at 52/250 - My very short stories were published in each of their quarterly reviews, including ‘Flesh and Blood‘ in thirteen, ’Anything Again‘ in twentysix‘It Stops‘ in thirtynine and ‘Redux’ in fiftytwo.

If you’d like to get in touch see my contact page.
