I love hearing from readers and you can usually find me on facebook or twitter if you have a question.
However here are a few frequently asked questions you may want to check out before you write.
Who is your agent?
I’m represented by Eve White at the Eve White Literary Agency
Can you send me a review copy?
My publishers kindly handle all review requests as I only get a limited number of copies for personal use. Please check NetGalley for ebooks, or contact my publishers for physical copies.
If you are in the UK, Ireland or Australia, please contact Bethan Jones on [email protected]
If you are in the US, please contact Meagan Harris on [email protected]
If you’re in Canada please contact Catherine Whiteside on [email protected]
For all other territories please check the “foreign editions” tab and contact the appropriate publisher for your territory.
I am an unpublished writer. Can you read my manuscript and offer feedback?
I am very sorry, but I’m afraid I can’t – I only just have enough time for my own writing and promotional commitments. I recommend joining a writers’ group because while receiving critiques is useful, what really helped me was reading other people’s writing and trying to analyse what worked for me, and why. There are some great groups online if you don’t have one local to you.
I am a journalist or blogger and would love to interview you.
Thank you so much! I try to funnel all interview and press requests via my publishers to avoid clashes, so please contact Bethan, Meagan or Catherine as above.
For all other territories please check the “foreign editions” tab and contact the publisher for your territory.
I am a bookseller or festival director and would like to invite you to speak at my venue.
Thank you! For requests relating to English-speaking territories, please contact Bethan, Meagan or Catherine as above.
For all other territories please check the “foreign editions” tab and approach the publisher for your territory, or, if you’re unable to find the right person, please contact my agent Eve White at the Eve White Literary Agency.
Where can I get book jackets and author photographs for use on my site?
Feel free to download any of the book jackets on this site, they are available to use online or in promotional materials.
My current author photo is the one at the top left of this page – you are free to use it (just right click to download) but it MUST be accompanied by a credit for the photographer, Gemma Day.
If you need higher resolution images, please contact Bethan, Meagan, Catherine, or the appropriate publisher for your territory.

When Dr Alderney meets an enigmatic young woman at the Bluebird Rest Home, he is intrigued not just by her beauty, but by her air of sadness and reserve. But Hester Westaway has a story to tell, and as the years go by, Dr Alderney comes closer to unravelling her secrets than perhaps anyone else alive.
Spoiler-free and standalone, The Tale of Mrs Westaway explains what came before my latest novel, The Death of Mrs Westaway.
