Why I write


So much has changed over the past three years. In January 2012, I was living on a building site, struggling to keep my head above water in a job that was quite possibly more than I could handle, and wondering whether (despite the view) moving out of London had really been such a great idea.

A few months later I fell pregnant, and my priorities began to shift…

Now of course I am loving living by the sea, spending my days writing and hanging out with an amazing baby. And I wouldn’t have it any other way.

You can find me over on the Faber Academy site today talking about how everything started to fall into place the moment I took a deep breath and decided to stop being so scared of my dreams.
