The second novel by this London-based barrister was published in Spring 2002, entitled BABYFACE.  The follow-up to her acclaimed debut, GOOD BAD WOMAN, it is a contemporary psychological thriller in which an unstereotypical, working class, gay, female barrister is drawn into a world of moral ambiguity and emotional deceit.  The author has a very light touch and has produced a compelling page-turner with a vibrant and fashionable North London setting.  Robustly commercial.
 
Her latest novel, THE SATURDAY GIRLS, set in the 1960s, is published by Bonnier Zaffre.
 

It's 1964. England has shaken off its post-war gloom and the world is full of possibilities.

Best friends Sandra and Linda live on a housing estate in Essex. They are aspiring mods: they have the music, the coffee bar and Ready Steady Go! on a Friday night.

Having landed their first jobs, Linda and Sandra look set. But the world is changing rapidly, and both girls have difficult choices to make. As Sandra blindly pursues a proposal, Linda finds herself drawn to causes she knows are worth fighting for.

But when Sandra's quest leads her to local bad boy Danny, she lands both her and Linda in more trouble than they bargained for.
