About

Hello, thanks for stopping by! I'm a London-based writer with a Welsh mother and Spanish father (so expect British spelling!). I was born in London but spent my teenage years in Barcelona. Wherever I've lived, my obsession with writing has followed.   

I originally wrote a romantic comedy on Wattpad called Spray Painted Bananas. Thanks to you, readers, it racked up over a million hits and attracted Harper Collins's attention - so THANK YOU! The novel has been edited and will be published under the new title THE TEMP.
