Profile I live in Twickenham with my husband, baby daughter and cat. I work part-time as a brand researcher, manuscript reader, creative writing tutor and general writer-for-hire. My first novel, THE ART OF LOSING, was published in hardback by Fourth Estate (HarperCollins) in March 2009, and in paperback in January 2010. My second novel, TOLD IN SILENCE, was published, also by Fourth Estate, in May 2010. I am represented by David Higham Associates.
