I grew up in the Sussex countryside, not far from the South Downs. I loved reading as a child and by the time I was eleven I'd successfully acquired the library tickets of every member of my family. From then on, I worked my way steadily through the entire fiction section. Books are still an important part of my life, but now I write them as well as read them.
I studied history at the University of York, before moving to London. Although I still feel like a country girl at heart I also love the vibrant energy and diversity of living in one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the world.
