Hi and welcome to my website! Here you’ll find lots of information about me, my novels, news of upcoming events, competitions, future publications and my journal. Journey through my website where countless wonders (well certainly lots of stuff) await… Enjoy your visit!

I was born in London, grew up in a library, and was the first in my family to go to university. After graduating from Oxford, and following a brief stint at New Scotland Yard, I chose a career in publishing over being the next Sherlock Holmes. Today I’m a senior editor at Oxford University Press Children’s Books and I live with my husband and little boy in a 17th Century Toll House in the Cotswolds.
