USA TODAY BESTSELLER GLOBE AND MAIL BESTSELLER AMAZON US, CA AND AU BESTSELLER I've been dreaming of writing of a book since the age of nine, when I read 'Harriet the Spy' and carried my notebook around the school playground in attempt to look like a proper writer. I was waylaid, however, by journalism and children, which led me into midwifery, and more years away from my keyboard. I became immersed in the world of words again, having completed an MA in Creative Writing at Oxford Brookes University, and now I'm loving the life of a full-time writer, with tales of birth, death and anything else in between. 'A Woman of War' was my first novel, combining an ongoing passion for birth with a fascination for wartime history and the tenacity of the human soul - survival, regardless of culture or creed. It's reception among readers worldwide proved beyond my wildest dreams; in the Kindle bestseller lists in the UK & Canada, and in paperback bestseller lists too. My second novel - 'The Secret Messenger' - continues a wartime theme, this time in occupied Venice and charts the contribution of the thousands of courageous women to the Allies hard won victory. Books three, four and five have taken me - and readers, hopefully - to pre- and post-war Berlin, and wartime Norway, places I love to visit, in books, in my head, and in person, Thanks to book lovers worldwide, I'm a happy little scribe, tapping away with my loyal muse dog, Basil, by my side. In any spare time away from writing, I'm a keen gym-goer, a knitter of what my children call 'strange things' (placentas included!), and pride myself on being Jack Savoretti's number one fan. I love coffee and coffee shops, but if you've read my books, you'll know that already!Read more Read less
