My brand new book #PleaseRetweet is out now published by Harper Collins.

Social media whizz kid, May Sparks has landed her dream job. Well, not quite, but the salary is great and all May has to do is handle the online profiles of Z – list celebrities who have the tendency to say inappropriate things. Easy, right? #wrong

May’s clients include an ex big brother star (who she's definitely not going to sleep with #neversaynever), a disgraced TV presenter (who wants May to sort out his marriage as well as his Twitter account), and a woman who once flashed her boobs on X-factor. They're all relying on her to turn them into stars. But they're not going to make her job easy.

As May is sucked further and further into her job she begins to lose her grip on real life. Her friends don’t ‘like’ her Facebook posts anymore and even her gorgeous neighbour, who once seemed to be on the same wavelength, criticises her career choice. Worse, May’s clients start getting trolled by an annoying tweep, who May happens to agree with.

Then May’s secret online identity is leaked, causing her to start trending on Twitter. It looks like the status update is over. Unless May can leave the superficial social media word behind and find her own voice again…

You can find it on amazon and all other digital book shops. Paperback out on 5th November.
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.
