I have been a published novelist since 2011, writing for young adults, and have won several awards. Last year I sold my first adult domestic noir, The Girl on the Platform, to Avon in a two book deal.
My books are all quite dark and contain strong female characters. They deal with themes and issues close to my heart. In The Girl on the Platform, the main character is struggling with post-natal depression when she witnesses a kidnapping.
I live in the Forest of Dean and have two children. People are often surprised at how ‘not dark’ I am in real life.
