Writer Superpowers (specialist subjects):

I like to write about families, lovers, secrets - the ways in which ordinary lives are transformed by extraordinary events. I’m fascinated by social history, with a focus on women’s history during the first half of the twentieth century.
I’ve taken part in many author events and readings, and love chatting about the process of writing, researching and getting published.
