I was born in the North of England where I spent a geeky youth reading books. I liked the library so much librarians would find me curled up asleep in the aisles, a good book clutched in my hands. I ‘published’ some of my own books as a child and made my family read them.

At the age of 19 I flew the nest and lived in Venice for a springtime, where I devoured all the culture, and all the tiramisu, I could get my hands on. After that I landed up at Bristol University, studying English Literature, then I moved to Edinburgh, Scotland to complete a Masters degree in Art History.

Since then I’ve done many things but my real love has always been writing. A few years ago I started posting stories on the website Wattpad which became a testing and training ground for my work. It has all gone well and that process has given me lots of writing practice and got me in touch with my young readers. I now have over 11K followers and over 2.4 millions reads.

I live in Scotland, with my film-maker/photographer husband, my baby son and a bunny called Buttons.

This is my bunny. She is called Buttons.
This is my bunny, Buttons. She is perfect in every way.

Things I love:

Tea, dragons, smelling old books, asking people weird questions (I’m curious!), collecting shells on beaches, films, comic books, New York.
