Hello and welcome to my website. Here, you can keep up with all the latest news about my novels, non-fiction, short stories & plays, as well as upcoming events both in the UK and further afield. I hope you have a great time exploring the site and, if you do, we'd love to hear from you.
It was great to see The Burning Chambers - the first in my new series of historical adventure novels - go to the top of the charts in the UK charts and elsewhere - and be followed by the second in the series, The City of Tears, in January 2021. I'm already at work on book III. I also have, for the first time in nearly a decade, a non-fiction book about my experiences of being a carer. An Extra Pair of Hands will be published by Wellcome Collection in June 2021.
Finally, I’m delighted to have launched my #Womaninhistory campaign in January 2021. Do check out all the brilliant nominations, from every period in history and from all corners of the world. The campaign aims to honour, celebrate and put back into the history books all the incredible women in whose footsteps we walk.
Thanks to the brilliant team at Pan Macmillan UK and my wonderful publishers worldwide for all of their enthusiasm and hard work. Thanks, too, to everyone at The Soho Agency, as well all the librarians and booksellers for their unstinting support and especially you, the readers.
