As a life-long lover of reading, particularly classic fiction and romantic comedies, I know how much joy a good book can bring. So when I began to write, my aim was to do just that – to bring joy to my readers, provide a little escape from the everyday and raise a few smiles. I very much hope you enjoy my writing and thank you for visiting my site! Here I’ll be sharing updates on my books and latest projects, as well as blog posts about inspiring themes and locations, my favourite books, reading recommendations, and all things bookish!
To tell you a little about myself, I was born and grew up in Cumbria, and although I currently live in Berkshire, I still feel a strong connection to the north of England. I first began to write in my twenties as an escape from the demands of my career in marketing, and writing quickly became both a passion and an obsession. It was in 2017, whilst in a feverish flu-like state, that I scribbled the first lines of what would become my debut novel The Art Trip, and so, rather unexpectedly, stumbled upon my talent and love for humorous writing. In my spare time, when I’m not working or writing, I love travelling to enjoy the arts and culture around the U.K. and Europe, an interest that often influences the settings and themes of my writing.
Out Now – The Art Trip
I’m pleased to share that my debut novel The Art Trip is available now via Amazon in paperback, ebook and in Kindle Unlimited. An uplifting romcom, full of warm humour and a generous dose of Nineties nostalgia, it’s the perfect read for lovers of art, lovers of Italy and lovers of love! I hope you enjoy it and would love to hear what you think!
