I live in Brighton, UK, and I am a sea-lover, star-gazer, film and football fan. I once organised a complete retrospective of the films of Doris Day and my football team is Tottenham Hotspur.

My background is journalistic writing and television production. I was a TV producer for 15 years. I left to become Deputy Director of the British Film Institute and later Chief Executive of BAFTA before joining the Foreign and Commonwealth Office for seven years. I now write full time. I love to hear from readers and you can find me on Twitter and Facebook.

Writer Superpowers 

I am always happy to talk about film as I worked at the BFI and BAFTA. My PhD subject was the Hollywood Women’s Picture of the 1930’s. 40’s and 50’s and I know a lot about the Golden Age of Hollywood.

I have taken part in writer panel discussions on Obsessive Women; Domestic Noir; How to get published and Murder by the Sea.  I enjoy panel discussions across genres too as I think this can throw up interesting aspects of our work.
