About this author

Hello :) I write supernatural and post-apocalyptic young adult novels which are also enjoyed by not-so-young adults. I live in Dorset, England with my husband and two noisy boys. Before children, I was signed to Universal Music as a singer songwriter. As well as writing novels, I also run eBookSoda - a place for readers to get FREE and bargain ebooks - yay!
