How I’m making time for creative writing.

When I first moved to Berlin the one big difference to London that I raved about to my friends was how much more spare time I had. In London I was working long, intense days, spending a lot of time rammed onto the central line, spending a lot of money meeting up with friends, and […]

A budget girls weekend in Brighton.

For my friend’s birthday we took the train from London to Brighton for a girls weekend. We did it on a super tight budget – living in London we were all poor as hell! We stayed at Smart Brighton because it was so cheap and had a good location (right next to the Walkabout, which… […]

Handy tips for Oktoberfest in Munich.

It’s two weeks until I go to Munich for Oktoberfest opening weekend 2017, and I thought I’d look back on my photos from Oktoberfest last year, so I can start planning for what to wear, which tents to go to, and how much money to save, because it gets quite expensive! Last year I visited […]

Exploring Copenhagen by boat.

A lazy Sunday in Copenhagen started by heading to Torvehallerne, the food and flower markets near Nørreport, for a coffee. They were just setting up for the day – there were vans bringing fresh flowers glistening with water, and tall Danish girls arranging their pastries and bread. We wandered down to Strøget, the shops still […]

My summer in Berlin.

I swear it just started, but summer seems to be disappearing before my very eyes. And while everyone’s told me Berlin summer is amazing, I think this summer the weather hasn’t been that great. There’s been a lot of rainy days and storms. While I’m hoping for a pretty amazing late summer, I thought I’d […]

Where to find deer in London.

Did you know there are wild deer living in London? Richmond Park is a massive park in the outer zones of London, and there are wild deer roaming throughout the park – if you can spot them! We hired bikes to ride around, so we found the deer pretty easily, but if you’re walking, it […]

How to spend winter in London.

Sadly it rarely snows in London, so the white winter you’re dreaming of is unlikely to happen in the capital. But London is still gorgeous in the winter, and here are a few of my favourite spots in London (including a few “secret” instagrammable locations).

My new novel, Ruthless.

I’m writing a new book! This one’s been in the works for a while, and I’m super excited about it. Hopefully sharing it will help me to continue writing it, the same way sharing my novel, Reprise, pushed me to finish it. Want to read an excerpt?

Read Reprise.

So I write this blog for fun, but the main thing I love to write is young adult fiction. My completed novel, Reprise, follows 16-year-old Emily in her final year of high school, when she discovers the reality of her father’s 80s band.

The prettiest town in the world.

I’m sure Hallstatt, Austria, will forever be one of my favourite places that I’ve ever visited, because it was so incredibly beautiful. We went in the middle of winter, hoping for a beautiful snow-covered village, but sadly there was no snow! The day we went was a bit rainy, misty and miserable… and yet Hallstatt […]
