I've been making up stories for as long as I can remember.

My first novel ONE NIGHT AT THE JACARANDA, in which a motley group of Londoners look for love and end up finding themselves, was described by The Sun newspaper as ‘a blinder of a tale’.

HAMPSTEAD FEVER, published July 2016, was picked by WH Smith for a prestigious front-of-store promotion in their travel bookshops. This novel tells the story of six intertwined lives one hot summer as emotions reach boiling point. Think ‘Love, Actually’, but in a heatwave.

Hold on until January 2021 and you'll be able to read THE GIRLS FROM ALEXANDRIA, my novel set in Egypt.

In my other life, I'm a family doctor and the author of a string of health books.

Memories of Beirut

Explosions are nothing new in Beirut. My childhood visits to the city were punctuated by car bombs. I’d grab my mother’s hand and ask why. Usually there was an election on. Lebanese elections were not always orderly, and the many factions were particularly competitive in the 1960s.
