The Truth and Lies of Ella Black

Published internationally by Penguin

Hello, and welcome to my website.

My second novel for young adults, The Truth and Lies of Ella Black, is published now in the UK, and will be out in 14 other places over the next year or so. It's set mainly in Rio, and is a thriller about a girl discovering that her whole life has been a lie. In the depths of this British winter, I find that even looking at its shiny cover makes me think of the gorgeous Brazilian sunshine.

Meanwhile The One Memory of Flora Banks, my first novel for young adults, has had a wonderful year. It was published in the UK a year ago, and it's been a whirlwind year indeed.
