I write award winning contemporary romantic fiction with an edge. I refuse to prettify or romanticise the tricky business of relationships and love. My philosophy is that life is not a fairy tale. It can be confusing and difficult. Sex is not always awesome; it can be awkward and embarrassing, and it has consequences. You don't always fall for Mr Right, even if he falls for you. And realising you're in love is not always good news. It can make the future look daunting.
All three of my recent books, published by Accent Press - TORN, LIFE CLASS and FLY OR FALL - have received Chill with a Book AWARDS.
I went to art school and originally worked as an illustrator in advertising. I began writing when my son was small and was published immediatel


Yesterday I received the publicity banner for my up and coming BlogBlitz, for BURIED TREASURE now only a fortnight away.  I am very excited. 

Many thanks to Rachel Gilbey and her 'Rachel's Random Resources' book promotion service for authors.

Amazing coincidence, Gilli! I'd love to know what you think of it. I did the same, finding the TV adaptation intriguing - horrific, but intriguing. I'm still watching it, finding it interesting how they've deviated from the book to suit the differ... See Full Answer
