BIO

 

Until recently, I worked as a freelance journalist based in London, England, and spent 25 years interviewing celebrities from the world of television, film and music for national newspapers and magazines.

 

I wrote for publications including The Guardian's Guide and Guardian Online; OK! Magazine; Total Film; Empire; Q; GT; The Independent; Star; Reveal; Company; Daily Star and News of the World's Sunday Magazine.

My debut novel The Wronged Sons, was released in 2013 and in May 2015, I released my second book, Welcome To Wherever You Are.

In May 2017 came my third book, The One. It was chosen as the book of the month for BBC Radio 2's Book Club.

 

The Wronged Sons was re-edited and re-released in July 2017 under a new title, When You Disappeared.

My fourth book, The Good Samaritan, was released in November 2017 and became a Number One hit world-wide.

In 2018 I released my police procedural thriller Her Last Move, and thanks to my brilliant readers, I was able to start working as a full-time author.

 

In April 2019 came The Passengers, a thriller with a futuristic twist set in driverless cars. 

A year later came bestseller What Lies Between Us, a psychological thriller which has been optioned by Renée Zellweger's production company and won the International Thriller Writers award for Best Paperback Original Novel 2021.

Also last year came The Minders, another work of speculative fiction which has earned some rave reviews from publications including the Wall Street Journal and has been optioned by Miramax. 

This summer I re-released Welcome to Wherever You Are with a new edit and new title, The Vacation. ​It was shortlisted in the 2022 Wilbur Smith Adventure Writing Prize. 

On October 18, I will be releasing my next psychological thriller Keep It In The Family. And in January 2023 comes the hardback and e-book version of The Marriage Act, a brand new work of speculative fiction.
