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.

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 :)
