Biography

​"All my novels have been set in Leeds because I studied at Leeds Trinity University and know the area pretty well.  My Psychology Lecturer was the inspiration for my first novel. She always encouraged her students and made us believe we could do better.

"We’ve stayed in touch since I graduated over 12 years ago - she’s a very inspirational and supportive person. It’s also why there’s a character very much like her in my first novel!”
