Welcome to my website. I've got a varied CV up till now as an actress, a presenter, a broadcaster and a voice-over artist. And now – with my debut novel the Butcher’s Hook – I'm absolutely thrilled to add ‘writer’ to that list. Writing is the most personal thing I do – and it's certainly what I'd most like to talk with you about.
PS: feel free to use the phrases 'one I made earlier' and 'sticky-backed plastic', I never get sick of them. Truly.
