'Let me live, love, and say it well

in good sentences.'
―Sylvia Plath

I am a freelance writer and editor with a particular interest in travel writing, wartime history, intrepid women and Southeast Asia. I grew up in Herefordshire and attended the University of York. I worked for some years in London for an independent publisher, and I now live in Bristol. 

My first novel, The Long Journey Home, won the 2019 Wilbur Smith Adventure Writing Prize and was published by Bonnier Zaffre in June 2021. I have written a few articles about the writing process and the inspiration for the book, which you can see here.

My second novel, Secrets of Malta, is out in February 2024.
