I am the author of the memoir Out of Me (1997) and four novels: The Sweetest Thing (Virago, 2003), The Picture She Took (2005), Tell it to the Bees (Tindal Street, 2009) and A Stone's Throw (Serpent's Tail, 2012).

My fifth novel, Outwalkers, will be published by David Fickling Books in February 2018. 

Tell it to the Bees is to become a feature film, starring Anna Paquin and Holliday Grainger, with a probable release date in 2018.
