I live in Bath with my husband and teenagers. My debut thriller The Truth About Lies was published by Stripes in July 2018.

I didn't start out writing fiction. Originally, I studied law at Jesus College, Cambridge and worked as a solicitor and law lecturer in London and Bristol. 


Having children was the perfect excuse to rekindle my love of kids' books. Also, volunteering as a librarian in a  school for seven years gave me plenty of ideas on what kids enjoy reading. I graduated with Distinction from the Bath Spa MA Writing for Young People and my story, The Letter, won the Stripes /The Bookseller YA Short Story Prize - published in I’ll Be Home for Christmas in 2017. And from there, I've kept on writing.
