As the marketing manager of a popular book-store, she’s discovered what it is that people are looking for and what they want in a good book.

Taking bits from her own life, her debut has been in gestation for some years prior to coming out on the market. Knowing the industry inside out has also served her well, having written plenty of marketing material for numerous other authors over the years. This has all led to her becoming the name that she is today, with a respectable profile behind her, as she continues to build on her brand, becoming a fully fledged and successful author in her own right.
