About me

Occupation Novelist.
Location Hastings Old Town, United Kingdom
Introduction It's been a diverse career. Not many people have written for Allure and (the late-lamented...) Gourmet mag. I've been a magazine editor, an op ed columnist on a broadsheet newspaper, and for years covered the fashion shows in Paris, Milan etc. But while I shifted between the worlds of food, fashion and current affairs, there was one overriding passion: books. Now I write them - five novels published, with another due out this year, and several books of journalism. Here I write about them.
Favorite Movies The Piano, The Godfather, Shrek 2, Madagascar 2, The Odd Couple, High Society.
Favorite Music Joni Mitchell, Take That, Chopin nocturnes.
Favorite Books See blog.

When you hesitate before hitting snooze on your alarm clock, are you being lazy?

My alarm clock is 6 years old and if she has a snooze button I haven't found it yet.
