I started out as a traditionally published author with non-fiction books, in the education/ self-help field, and have a background as a books editor for a publishing company where I looked after print and ebooks. Prior to that I spent several years as a freelance journalist writing for the likes of The Independent, The Times, The Guardian, The Telegraph, woman&home, Easy Living, and Scarlet. I've also written extensively online, including for AOL, several Guardian blogs and was a freelance editor for several years for Shiny Media, running Britain's top wedding blog. (I used to have nightmares about wedding dresses.) I also write sparkling ad copy. Sparkling, I tell you.
My first novel was Illicit Magic, which is now the first in the Stella Mayweather series, a sometimes dark urban fantasy tale of a young woman who discovers she's a witch. My other series is a fantasically fun mystery series about an office-temp-turned-PI called Lexi Graves, who isn't a very good PI to start but she's determined. While it's funny, it's not slapstick, so hopefully you'll laugh with her rather than cringe at her. I like to write my heroines as brave, resourceful and able. My heroines don't wait around for a man to rescue her, she's got to figure it out for herself... though she'll take an appropriately placed rescue with grace.
