I write historical fiction and fantasy for readers of all ages.
My latest series for young readers is The Firewatcher Chronicles: the first two books, Brimstone and Phoenix are out now. They are time-slip stories, set in London in the Blitz and during other key moments in the city’s fiery history.
My previous novel for young readers is 1917, set during the First World War.
If you’re interested in Goddess, my novel based on the life of the remarkable French opera star and swordswoman, Julie d’Aubigny, you can read about the book, the real woman’s life, and all my research here.
Or you can read my blog: On writing and reading.
You can hear me interview other writers, as co-host of Unladylike, a podcast on women and writing.
