I always wanted to be a writer. I once even took up residence on a beach in Goa to write my first novel – and the attempt lasted about 45 minutes... My time finally came in 2010 when my mother was ill and I wrote a story for her to read that was set to become ONE STEP TOO FAR.
Failing to even get an agent, in 2013 I eventually set up my own publishing company to launch my novels. My books have since gone on to be published in 18 languages in over 60 countries.
My third novel, THE HONEYMOON, has been optioned by Lindsay Lohan to be made into a film and I have been writing the screenplay with her. I am also currently in (Covid-delayed) talks to make WHEN WE WERE FRIENDS into a TV series.
But perhaps most excitingly of all, my new books, HOME TRUTHS and HOPE CLOSE, are finally published, and I have nearly finished my sixth book, one that is very close to my heart. More news on that soon.
I live in North London with my husband, son and dog, and I swim wherever I can, as long as it's not in an indoor pool. :)

WHEN WE WERE FRIENDS
It had always been the six of them.
Since they met at university twenty-five years ago, they’d faced everything together. Break-ups and marriages, motherhood and death. They were closer than sisters; the edges of their lives bled into each other.
But that was before the night of the reunion. The night of exposed secrets and jagged accusations. The night when everything changed.
