I write romantic fiction with a sense of humour and, sometimes, a sense of the ridiculous. Because we all know life and love aren’t exactly how we’d like them to be.
Most of my books are set in Europe, with sassy British heroines.
When not writing, I love to cook and to read, I even read in the car (talking books) and have notched up countless unnecessary miles as a result.
