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.

I saw your post about your experiences on wattpad and it inspired me to continue writing! Thank you so much and I'm glad that your book is published. You deserved it! I can't wait to read your work.

Thank you Amber, that's so kind of you! I'm thrilled you've bought it! Sales are going a bit slowly, and I wonder if it's because people are looking for Spray Painted Bananas instead! Thank you so much and if you can leave a good review on amazon that would be absolutely amazing :)
