Hello, and welcome to my site.
Here you'll be able to find out all about my books and writing.
The books in my trilogy for Harper Collins (Revelry, Vanity and A Girl Called Summer) have been described, among other things, as 'Filthy-bright, brash and laugh-out-loud funny,' 'Bridget Jones times 10,' 'A fresh, funny and honest look at life in the hippest heart of London' and 'This Life for the 21st Century'.
Before writing novels I was a journalist for five years, but prior to that my career path involved everything from waitressing (dreadful) to secretarial at the BBC World Service (much better!) to desktop publishing for practically every bank in the City. Ah, the 90s.
Journalism, however, was (and still is) fantastic fun. I have written for The Times, Guardian, Independent, Evening Standard, Time Out, Arena, Hong Kong Tatler and Marie Claire, about extremely important things like hangover cures and the best beaches in Ibiza. I once had to live like Madonna for a week, for the Evening Standard. Which was nice. I am currently Shopping Editor at West London Living, and also write hotel, restaurant, and beauty reviews.
You can take look at some of my archive here.
I spent the first four years of my life in Majorca, grew up in central London, studied English at university, then went on to teach English in Athens as I had no idea what to do with my life. Sadly the lure of the Greek islands proved my undoing.
I now live in West London with my musician husband, and life is currently rosy - as far as I'm concerned, writing, whether fact or fiction, is the best job in the world.
Thank you for visiting my site.
