WRITING

Writing

I’m almost exclusively a YA Contemporary writer. My WIPs are summarised under the tabs (though probably not up-to-date).

 

Reading

I’ll read pretty much anything that doesn’t include vampires or zombies. My favourite authors include Ursula Le Guin, Jessica Day George, Eva Ibbotsen, Frances Hardinge, Carole Lloyd and Geraldine McCaughrean. I’m a fanatic for twentieth century ‘school stories’–Elinor Brent Dyer is my hero, closely followed by Enid Blyton, Angela Brazil and Josephine Elder. I write most productively when reading classics–all the Austens, Vanity Fair, Gone With the Wind, Green Dolphin Country and The Woman in White are my to-die-for favourites.

And if you take recommendations, well, ‘The Book of Lies’ by Mary Horlock is all I have to say.
