Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

Welcome to my author page...I've always loved stories, but it took several years as a Reuters journalist for me to realise I prefer the kind of truth that lies in fiction, not reality. That said, the inspiration for The Dictator's Wife came while reporting on the 2016 US election. I'm fascinated by public perception and private fact; by ambiguity and the manipulation of truth; and by how our rational minds can so easily be overpowered by fear, and glamour.

The Dictator's Wife is out now and is set in Eastern Europe, where I travelled for several months as research, hearing stories of lives under Communism and having many adventures, including on my first night when I was teargassed while attending an anti-government protest in Bucharest.

Before all this, I studied English at Cambridge, and now live between London and the beautiful beaches of Wales. One day I swear I will learn to surf.
