I live by the sea in Brighton, East Sussex, UK.

My debut novel THE LIE OF YOU has been translated into seven languages and will be released as a feature film later this year starring Tuppence Middleton, Lydia Wilson, Rupert Graves and Luke Roberts.
My two psychological thrillers THE LIE OF YOU and AFTER THE STORM were published in 2014 and 2015 and were USA Today bestsellers.

My next, WOMAN OF THE HOUR, reveals life at the TV front-line through the eyes of producer Liz Lyon. It came out in July 2016 and the follow-up BEHIND HER BACK was published in 2018. My publisher is Head of Zeus and my agent is Gaia Banks of Sheil Land.

First Draft Euphoria

I've just completed the first draft of my fifth novel and this has given me a lovely feeling of euphoria.

When you start out on a novel you are enthused by your premise for the story and think it will unfurl before you. It does not happen like that.

I know how my story will start and how it will end, though I will write the ending many times before I feel the wording is right. But it is the getting Read more of this blog post »
