Welcome to my website, where you can find out more about me and the work I do. I am a journalist and have also worked in charity PR. 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. The Restless Wave was published in May 2019.
Joy and Felicity was published on 1 July 2021
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 Church Times Festival of Faith and Literature. 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 Oxfordshire with my husband and we have two adult children, both of whom decided to get married in recent times. Untold rejoicing, naturally, as we welcome two wonderful partners into our family. But frankly, it would have been a lot less stressful if it hadn't all happened in the middle of a plague. Just saying.
