About me

I'm a writer, editor and fellow of the Royal Literary Fund. My book Reading the World: Confessions of a Literary Explorer (The World Between Two Covers in the US), which was inspired by my year-long journey through a book from every country, was published in 2015.

My next two books are novels: international bestseller Beside Myself and Crossing Over, which is out now as an Audible Original audiobook.




I graduated from Cambridge University with a first-class degree in English literature and went on to do a master's in creative writing at UEA. I also have training in sub-editing from the London College of Communication and a postgraduate diploma with distinction from the London School of Journalism.
