I’m an incurable romantic at heart, and a sucker for great humour.
I’ve been writing for many years, and all the stories contain either love, or humour, or both – I simply can’t keep these elements out of my work.
I’m inspired by the big and small screen as well as books, and have a soft spot for things like Richard Curtis’ romcoms, timeless TV comedy like The Good Life and Blackadder, less well-known feelgood films and romances (Always, Forget Paris, Roxanne), and books which make me laugh -often in a clever, biting or bittersweet way (Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine, The Rosie Project, Cat Lady).
I have a soft spot for stories with strong women and nerdy or hapless guys.
Fundamentally, I try to write the books I like to read. I hope to distil humour, romance – and sometimes pathos or bittersweet vibes – into my novels.
Outside of writing, I enjoy photography, great scenery, a nice peaceful train ride, delicious coffee and cake, and catching up with old friends. I’m also something of a geek, fascinated by maths, science and even fonts!
