I grew up in London surrounded by books and with a cat named after Lawrence of Arabia. I studied English Literature at the University of East Anglia and live in Norwich with my husband David.

I'm a total book nerd and my TBR pile is out of control. I would quite like to be a ghost hunter, and I'm a huge fan of a fictional hero.

When I'm not writing, I spend my spare time reading, returning to London or exploring the beautiful Norfolk coastline.

I love hearing from readers, so please get in touch if you have a question or if you just want to say hello.

Very happy to answer this. There are strong opinions about the order of clotted cream and jam on a cream tea – they are split into two categories, either the Cornish cream tea, which has jam on the bottom and cream on the top, or the Devon – the county next door – cream tea, which is the other way round, with cream on the bottom and jam on the top. It's quite an emotive subject, especially in those two neighbouring counties. :D x(less)

All You Knead is Love is published today

[image error]Happy Thursday!  It is a particularly happy Thursday for me, despite the grim weather, because the first part of my new series – The Cornish Cream Tea Summer – is out today. It’s called All You Knead is Love, and it has a beautiful, summery cover, which should help take away some of the February gloom.


It has got some new characters and some you might recognise from The Cornish Cream T

I was lucky enough to get to read this brilliant book early, and I finished it with a massive grin on my face and tears in my eyes.

It has all the elements of the perfect romcom. A loveable, flawed heroine who is, above all, relatable; a cast of supp

‪Struggling to find the right words to express how much I loved The Cutting Place. ‬

‪A scarily plausible, brutal story that kept me guessing - and often holding my breath. It made me laugh, and it moved me to tears.‬

I did like some of the characters, and the lovely setting, and the drama in the middle, but there were some aspects of it that I didn’t enjoy.

The Lantern Men by Elly Griffiths

My favourite Elly Griffiths so far. The plot is twisty and unpredictable, it’s superbly creepy and it was so wonderful to be back with Ruth, Nelson et al. Already I can’t wait for the next one.

The Other Girl by C.D. Major

Hugely atmospheric, incredibly creepy and so emotional. A clever and sinister page turner set in a New Zealand asylum, exploring the idea of past lives. I can’t recommend this book enough.
