She lives in the English Midlands with her husband and three children, where she enjoys all live entertainment, watches a lot of movies and some great TV shows like Merlin, Robin Hood, Dr Who, and Being Human. She also listens to a lot of Journey and Queen and reads (apologies to the adverb police) voraciously, especially Lee Child, Suzanne Collins, Cornelia Funke, Michelle Paver, Jodi Picoult, Stephen King, Stephenie Meyer, J.K. Rowling, Preston/Child, George RR Martin and Wilbur Smith. But her favourite author will always be the master of history, Bernard Cornwall.
