My addiction to chick-lit started early on, when I devoured Judy Blume’s books at top speed, and then progressed into the Sweet Valley High/Sweet Dreams series. They didn’t sit too well with my other teen reading choices, which were mainly horror books by Stephen King and Dean Koontz! But while the blood-thirsty, black books have disappeared from my bookshelves over the years, the pink sparkly ones have only continued to increase. I read loads and particularly love Ann Brashares, Meg Cabot and Louise Rennison.
After graduating I experimented with many different
professions but didn’t like any of them much. Eventually I realised maybe I
should focus on what I really loved – creative writing. I was among the first
intake of the MA in Writing for Young People at
I also have a website.
