I’m a British author, living in Amsterdam. My first book, Try Not to Breathe was published in 2016 and my second, Don’t Close Your Eyes has just been published. A third is being edited right now…

When I’m not writing, I’m hanging out with my dog Arnie, my kids and husband, or lifting weights.

Some times they just pop into my head, like Alex Dale from Try Not to Breathe. I was writing the very first scene with her and the name came out on to the page without any conscious thought, and I loved it.

Robin from Don’t Close Your Eyes is special to me. Her full name is Robin Marshall. Music is a big part of her… TO READ INTERVIEW IN FULL, CLICK HERE
