I'm a former journalist and PR who has left the dark side behind to write dual-time novels.
I live in coastal Essex with my husband, two small daughters and a staffy called Socks.
When I'm not making up stories and characters, I can usually be found with a glass of wine in one hand and a good book in the other. It makes it tricky to turn the pages.
My absolute favourite authors are Kate Morton, Lucinda Riley, Rachel Hore and Liz Fenwick. I will even put the wine down to read anything by these fantastic writers.
