I’ve always dreamed of being a writer and when my first novel - Playing Away - was published the Evening Standard identified me as one of London’s ‘Twenty Faces to Watch’, which was very nice of them! I like to keep busy and I’ve published 20 novels, and I'm thrilled to say that they've all hit the bestseller lists. Lies Lies Lies and Just My Luck have secured the top spot and are Sunday Times #1 bestsellers. Whoop whoop, thanks to every single person who has ever bought a copy of one of my novels. There must be a lot of you as I've sold over 3.8 million books in the UK alone and I've been translated into 26 different languages. I have written 18 contemporary novels and 2 historical ones, Spare Brides and If You Go Away, which are set during and after WW1. I'm happiest writing twisty, domestic noirs as I like to scrutinize our concepts of family, our theories on love, parenting and fidelity. There's nothing more fun than taking ordinary people and placing them under extraordinary stress - at least in novels! I passionately believe that reading is a basic right. I'm a proud Ambassador of The National Literacy Trust and The Reading Agency, charities that are devoted to encouraging emerging adult readers and children who are finding the magic of books. During my career I've lived in Italy, Botswana and London. Now I live happily in Surrey with my husband, son and cat.
