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 trying to look interesting. I was waylaid, however, by journalism and children, which led me into midwifery, and more years away from my keyboard. But I'm immersed again in the world of words, having completed an MA in Creative Writing at Oxford Brookes University. Now I write about birth, death and anything else in between (when I'm not called out to birth with women in the small hours). 'A Woman of War' is my first novel, combining a continued 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 has been 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. Now I'm researching and gathering for the next two novels with Avon Books/Harper Collins. Thanks to book lovers, I'm one happy little scribe. In any spare time away from writing and babies, 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.Read more Read less
