Writer, wife, mum - not always in that order. Winner of the Romantic Novelists' Association New Writers' Award for my debut novel THE WRONG SORT OF GIRL. Shortlisted more recently in the 2015 Love Stories Awards for my latest release, a modern grown-up fairy tale, FOUR SIDES TO EVERY STORY. My first fairy tale, ONCE UPON A WINTER, reached #1 in both the Contemporary Fantasy and the Fairy Tale charts on Amazon UK. I also have a couple of short stories in the SUNLOUNGER anthologies (2013 and 2014). In my spare time I take perverse delight in bossing around the members of Novelistas Ink, founded by the bestselling author Trisha Ashley... http://novelistasink.blogspot.co.uk

Favourite quote:
'It is never too late to be what you might have been', George Eliot.

Favourite book:
Currently? For sheer joy and page-turning brilliance, it has to be HOWL'S MOVING CASTLE by Diana Wynne Jones.
