Hello, and welcome to my site.
Here you'll be able to find out all about my books, other things I write, and my (somewhat sporadic) musings on life.
I write novels for Harper Collins that have been described 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 more than ten years, but prior to that my career path involved everything from waitressing (dreadful) to stripping (marginally better), to being fired from every bank in the City. I was not what you'd call an ideal City employee.
Journalism, however, was (and still is) fantastic fun. I have written for The Times, Guardian, Independent, Evening Standard, Time Out, Arena 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 restaurant, beauty and travel 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 fiction, immersing yourself in your characters' lives, is the best job in the world. It can be terribly anti-social, of course - but that's what Twitter and Facebook are for. So please do get in touch, I'd love to hear from you!
Thank you for visiting my site
