I have always written: articles, reviews, essays, chapters – some of which you can read here. Most recently I have started writing fiction. My first novel Miss Boston and Miss Hargreaves was published by Penguin in 2017.  I am now working on my second.

You’ll find information here about Miss Boston and Miss Hargreaves: reviews of the novel, interviews and pieces I’ve written about the writing and the research process and what it is like to become a debut author when you already have one career behind you. I will also be posting short fiction and non-fiction and criticism about books, TV and film.

I am delighted to be one of the four Writers in Residence at Gladstone’s Library in Hawarden, Wales for 2018.
