I am a hopeless romantic and devotee to a happy ever after.
I fell in love with romance on a teenage trip to Florence, when I spent an unexpected magical evening of ice cream and sweet kisses with a gorgeous young footballer from AC Milan. This inspired me to dream of romance and so I started writing love stories in my head.
I got side-tracked by a career as a lawyer, defending allegedly negligent solicitors. From time to time, I leave them to look after themselves, so I can devote myself to writing my stories.
I live in rural Hertfordshire with my photographer husband David and an over-indulged tabby cat called Freddie.
I write in a summerhouse looking out over fields. When I am not writing or advising lawyers, you can find me reading, baking and growing organic vegetables.
