I mainly write historical fiction, one series set in 18th century China, one set in 11th century Morocco: my first novel, The Fragrant Concubine, was Editor’s Choice at the Historical Novel Society, my latest, The Cold Palace, won the 2019 Novel London award. I was the Leverhulme Trust Writer in Residence at the British Library and now run regular writing workshops there. I live in London, UK with my husband and two children. I have just completed a PhD in Creative Writing and I’m currently working on a series set in Ancient Rome.
