About me

I’m a writer and traveller with a lengthy bucket list and cheeky sense of humour. When I travel, I love exploring new places, outdoor adventures, and eating and drinking like a local. I’m also an avid reader, an amateur film buff, a wine lover, and a coffee snob, though my writing is mostly fuelled by copious mugs of strong, milky tea (no sugar).

As well as blogging about travel, life, writing, reading, and (sometimes) serious stuff, I am an author of romantic fiction.

As an author, I write the heart – what makes it sing, what breaks it, and how it mends – and many of my travel adventures have found homes in my novels.

My first novel, a romantic comedy set in Greece and inspired by my real-life love story, was published in June 2019 by One More Chapter (HarperCollins).

In 2020, two follow-ups in the Holiday Romance series hit bookshelves – That Night in Paris and A Sunset in Sydney –and a stand-alone Christmas novel, The Christmas Swap, was published in October.

2021 saw the publication of my 5th novel, The Dating Game, which is set in the fascinating world of Reality TV. The next two books in the Holiday Romance series are set in Bali and Tuscany (out in June), and they will be followed by The May Ladies’ Christmas, a follow-up to The Christmas Swap. I’ve also co-authored a sexy crime thriller with Author Fiona Leitch and we already have an idea for the follow up. And like most authors I have a dozen ideas humming away in the background for new stories. Next up, I will begin work on a new romcom series.

I am represented by Lina Langlee of The North Literary Agency.

I am a member of the Romance Novelists Association (UK) and Romance Writers of Australia.

  • I saw you were in Edinburgh (Scotland is my home nation), so I hope you loved it!

    Where in Portugal are you trying? I’ve been scoping Porto as a place to live for a few months: we’ve heard such great things.

    • Hey Lainey – we loved Edinburgh. We were only there a week – a taster. We moved to Porto yesterday and went exploring today. We’re committed to the next two months, so if you do decide to head our way, let me know so we can meet up.

      It is beautiful here – a very walkable city and so far we are happy with our decision – plus the weather is gorgeous.
