Hello and welcome to my website! I write smart romantic comedies that flirt with crime and generally include dogs. If you're not a dog lover, feel free to reimagine them as cats. Or very large stick insects.
My first book, Not Just For Christmas (Mutts & Mistletoe in the USA) won the 2019 RNA Romantic Comedy of the Year Award in the UK and was published in fifteen countries.
My second book, IT TAKES TWO, will be published in the UK in October 2021 and elsewhere soon after. Look out for it soon...

neighbour's garden. Desperate times.

Charlie hates the holidays. And this year is shaping up to be
her worst yuletide ever. Her boyfriend has run off with his personal trainer, her boss is threatening to make her redundant, and her flat has exploded from a gas leak. Now she’s homeless, single, grumpy – and concussed. How much more cheer can Christmas bring?
When her mother persuades her to stay with a cousin in Devon, Charlie is forced to trade her dream of a quiet Christmas in London for a far too lively one looking after the 'clients' at Cosy Canine Cottages, her cousin's dog kennel. Soon she discovers that her new wards have bad breath, dirty feet and appalling table manners.
But what can they teach her about love?
