Sub-genre: , , , , ,

I have been a traditionally published novelist since 2011. I write award-winning young adult thrillers, adult thrillers and short stories. I have performed at a number of festivals and events, including, but not limited to, Edinburgh Literary Festival, YALC, LonCon, Picocon, The Sci-fi Weekender, The Wychwood Festival, The Alderley Edge Festival and  The Just So Festival.

My books are all dark, with many twists and turns, and contain strong female characters. They deal with themes and issues close to my heart.

I live in the Forest of Dean and have two children. People are often surprised at how ‘not dark’ I am in real life.
