My writing is funny, romantic, powerful and emotional. At the heart of each novel is a love story but I always include hard-hitting and thought-provoking themes within my storylines – such as addiction and disability. My protagonists often have to overcome adversity, based on my own experience of a professional tennis career cut short at the age of 18 when I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis. I have never played tennis again, a sadness that will always be with me, but I have very much filled that void with writing. I am drawn to true stories and aim to write with compassion, empathy and humour about issues that resonate with my growing readership and that I believe have the potential of reaching and touching millions more.
I live in west London with my handsome Lucas Terrier, Mr Darcy.
