I’m British, and originally from Yorkshire (or those who don’t really know British geography, think Winterfell), but now live in London with my husband, Freddie. I studied history at Oxford University and still love everything historical, particularly the three Rs: Renaissance, Restoration and Regency. Afterwards, I trained as a barrister, and now work for the UK Government.
I’m the author of The Cavaliers Trilogy (Oxford Blood, Screaming Spires, and Ivory Terrors), about vampires at Oxford University. And more recently, of My Love is Vengeance, the first of a fantasy series about a girl plotting revenge on the duke who killed her twin while trying not to fall for his charms or give in to her dark side.
I love any type of story that takes me away from the here and now: futuristic, historical, fantasy or simply weird, dramatic things happening in a contemporary setting. I’m generally less of a fan of stories of ordinary people doing ordinary things in the present day, though I’ll make an exception for anything that includes unconventional narratives, unreliable narrators or tricksy, experimental story-telling.
I am an unashamed lover of alluring villains and villainous (or at least seriously morally ambiguous) protagonists. That’s Gone Girl-style ladies and Darkling-style gentlemen. I particularly enjoy tales that feature sinister characters as possible love interests.
