I am a mass-market women’s novelist, ghostwriter and journalist with over twenty years’ experience of writing across a broad spectrum of genres.
My debut novel, Secrets of the Singer Girls, became a Sunday Times bestseller and I am currently working on my fourth novel for Pan Macmillan. I am also a seasoned ghostwriter, having written five bestselling memoirs for Penguin, Hodder & Stoughton and Simon & Schuster. The last of these, Aprons & Silver Spoons, reached number one on the Sunday Times non-fiction bestseller list.
My background as a journalist specialising in national newspapers and women’s weekly magazines has given me an instinctive understanding of what makes a compelling read, whilst my experience as a novelist and ghostwriter translates those stories into commercial page-turners.
I will work hard to capture your authentic voice and use my extensive publishing contacts to give you the best possible chance of seeing your story on the bookshelves. Once your book is published, my expertise in social media, press and marketing will help to ensure it gains enough traction to reach its full potential.
