I’ve always enjoyed the written word and have started writing many a novel, but ‘What Happened to Evie Del Rio’ is the one that I am most proud of as it’s been in my head for such a long time. The lockdown enabled me to crack on and get it finished.

I like to think that I am currently enjoying my ‘middle youth’, rather than my ‘middle age’. I’m married and Mum to 2 boys, a 20-year-old and a 15-year-old but I still enjoy going to gigs and discovering new music.

I love reading women’s fiction, but I do have a bit of a penchant for crime and psychological thrillers! If I’m not on social media, reading, writing or listening to music you will probably find me on a football pitch cheering on my youngest son and his team.

I have always had music in my life; my late father was a jazz drummer and growing up I enjoyed the gig circuit as many of my friends were in bands and together with my love of the written word I have always wanted to write a book centred around an indie/rock band.
