I'm the 24 year old YA author of The Next Together series and The Loneliest Girl in the Universe (September 2017).

I started writing during secondary school English classes, because I couldn't stop thinking about a couple who kept falling in love throughout history. I sold the rights to the novel when I was 21, whilst I was still at university.

The Next Together series was published in September 2015 by Walker Books in the UK and Australia. Rights have sold in over five territories worldwide. The book was described by The Bookseller as 'funny, romantic and compulsively readable'. It was longlisted for the Branford Boase Award, a prize given to recognise an outstanding novel by a first time writer.
