I spent my childhood in a small market town in Nottinghamshire, reading, roller-booting, baking disastrous cakes and spending hours on the phone to my best friend, despite us living a ten second’s walk from each other.
After studying biochemistry at university, I worked in cancer research before giving it up to take care of my growing family while teaching antenatal classes part time. It was fantastic job, but after 10 years of talking about childbirth and nappies, it was time to move on.
So, following some deep soul searching, I embarked on my next adventure. By the time I’d tapped out the first chapter I had fallen in love with writing, and suddenly all those hours spent daydreaming made sense.
When not writing novels, I sometimes work as a bid writer. I`m also part of the King’s Church, Arnold leadership team and am trustee of Free Range Chicks, a fabulous network of women who share their love, hope, strength and joy with each other.

I live in a village on the outskirts of Robin Hood country, with my husband and three teenagers.
Having overcome childhood selective mutism, one of the things I love about my job is getting invited to speak or lead seminars and workshops at all sorts of different groups, conferences and events. if you would be interested in having me come to speak, please fill out the form on the contact page and let`s chat!
