I self published my novel, Very Nearly Perfect, and on a bit of a whim entered it for the Montegrappa First Fiction award at 2016’s Emirates Lit Fest, and I came second! The judge, the wonderful Luigi Bonomi then became my agent and got me a two-book deal with Harper Impulse, an imprint of Harper Collins. Very Nearly Perfect morphed into Me, You & Tiramisu and it launched at the end of Feb 2017!

Here are some of the reviews of Very Nearly Perfect:

“This is a really great read, perfect for sitting is a comfy armchair on a rainy afternoon or even better on a sunny beach on holiday!
The characters are interesting and believable and the story totally sucks you in right from the start. It’s very well written with a great sense of humour that actually made me laugh out loud. I can totally recommend this book and hope you enjoy it as much as I did!”

“Readers are taken on an emotional roller coaster with the characters as storylines develop in Very Nearly Perfect. I caught myself laughing out loud, supporting and sobbing. An excellent read which kept me swiftly turning the pages until the very end.”

This fascinating book reveals the terrifying power of modern communications to create and destroy reputations within a worldwide readership in seconds. Written with a very light touch this book is great fun to read and has some wonderful and amusing descriptions places and relationships, not to mention delicious foods. It also makes the reader ponder about what is really important in life.”
