I grew up in Wales on the edge of the Brecon Beacons, which has inspired a life-long love of wild landscapes and ancient myths. As a teenager, I studied Art History in Italy, then Classics at Bristol and Oxford. After five years working in publishing, I left to focus on my own writing career - writing eleven books for children and young adults. The Favour, my first novel for adults, publishes in March 2021.

I live in South East London with my husband and two children.
