I wrote my first (unpublished) novel when I was 13 - and I've been making up stories ever since.
After finishing my masters degree, I had several temping jobs before getting my big break in journalism working on small newspaper. In the evenings I continued to write fiction and in 2001 I had the idea for The Cupid Effect. Two years later it hit the shelves and my career as a published novelist began.
In 2006 my third novel, My Best Friend's Girl, was published and was selected for the Richard & Judy Summer Reads Book Club - going on to sell over 500,000 copies. To date I've written six bestseller list books, and they have been translated into 28 languages across the world.
I live near Brighton and am currently working on another book and a screenplay. Find out more info at www.dorothykoomson.co.uk
