I am an avid reader whose love of stories and daydreaming couldn't help but spill over into writing. I read almost every genre, but have a special love of fantasy and science fiction. My debut novel, The Secret Dead, was published on 11 April 2014.

I deal with this mostly by either staring out the window, daydreaming, or spending hours on tumblr.

I'm on Patreon!

Hi all,

As I mentioned in my last post, the next Vivia book is nearing completion (hooray!)
But I'm seriously short of cash to cover the cost of publishing (boo!).
I've just set up a Patreon page to raise funds and have some great rewards for subscribers. So if you want a good deal on my work (now and future!), this is the place to go.

You can find me here. Read more of this blog post »
