Highly atmospheric and genuinely spine-tingling, the power of family and female friendships shine in this assured debut.

She spent her childhood in Zambia where she was told local myths and stories which now influence her writing. She has since moved to Bristol where she works on building worlds and adventures for MG readers with strong friendships at the heart of them. She lives with her dogs and partner.
