I write award winning contemporary romantic fiction with an edge. I refuse to prettify or romanticise the tricky business of relationships and love. My philosophy is that life is not a fairy tale. It can be confusing and difficult. Sex is not always awesome; it can be awkward and embarrassing, and it has consequences. You don't always fall for Mr Right, even if he falls for you. And realising you're in love is not always good news. It can make the future look daunting.
All three of my recent books, published by Accent Press - TORN, LIFE CLASS and FLY OR FALL - have received Chill with a Book AWARDS.
I went to art school and originally worked as an illustrator in advertising. I began writing when my son was small, and was published immediately. But those early books were not successful - maybe I was ahead of my time? - and there was a long interval before I was published again.
I now live in a beautiful valley in the Cotswold Hills. I wouldn't be able to live the life I do without the support (emotional and financial) of my husband. Our son, Thomas Williams, is also an author. His popular history, the Vikings in Britain will be published by Harper Collins in summer 2017.
