I've got the best job in the world - making stuff up! But it took me a while to be able to spend my days in front of a laptop. Before I began writing I did many jobs, including waitressing, teaching English to foreign students, working in a knicker factory and answering phones at Wembley Stadium. I also worked for a decade as a sub-editor and journalist on several newspapers.
I live in London with my family and a psychotic cat.
