I was born in Devon but grew up in Mauritius and Surrey. As the trailing spouse of a serving soldier I spent a large part of married life shuttling between postings. I've worked variously as a freelance journalist, radio reporter, English teacher and PR consultant in Northern Ireland, Germany, Nepal and England. I'm now settled with my family in Nottingham.
I wrote my debut, The Gunner Girl, whilst my husband was on operations with the British Army in Afghanistan. The Gunner Girl won both the Exeter Novel Prize and the Joan Hessayon Award for new fiction. Since then I've written The English Agent, The Night Raid, and The Escape.
All my books are available in paperback, e-book, large print, and audio.
