Welcome to my website, where you can find out more about me and the work I do. I provide PR and communications support in the charity sector. In the gaps between the day job I run a literary festival, write features and read a lot of books. I’m also a novelist. My first novel, Knowing Anna, was published in June 2016. My new book, The Restless Wave, will be published in 2019. I'm speaking about the new book at Bloxham on 17 February. And you can read an extract here.
I studied Classics at Cambridge and Social Anthropology at Oxford,
which gave me a fascination for the stories people tell and the worlds they inhabit. I have worked variously as a journalist, editor and PR professional. I am the Director of the Bloxham Festival of Faith and Literature which is a small literary festival that takes place in north Oxfordshire near Banbury. We describe it as “a literary festival with a theological slant” and our mission is to encourage a love of literature as it relates to faith; to bring together authors and those who appreciate their work; and to create a thoughtful and relaxing space in which to consider works of literature and their religious themes. I live in Northamptonshire with my husband and we have two grown up children.
